Gaming Interest Groups

NAGRA instituted Gaming Interest Groups to provide the membership with focused sessions that provide a platform to discuss their efforts on emerging issues for their respective areas. Brainstorming on training topics for future conferences and webinars is also a point of their discussions.

The Gaming Interest Groups also use these meetings to share experiences and problems in their jurisdictions to come up with creative solutions. This system has been successful due to the broad-based experience of association members. Note: you must be a current NAGRA member to participate in the Interest Groups. Not a member? Join today!

Current Gaming Interest Group Areas:

  • Charitable Gaming
  • Casino/Electronic Gaming/igaming
  • Tribal/Indigenous
  • Sports Wagering
  • Investigators
  • Safer Gambling
See the current board/committee representative for each area below. 

If you interested in leading the discussion or have a focused topic for one one or more interest groups, email us at Volunteering your time and leadership is also great way to give back to NAGRA. Many volunteers say the networking and knowledge they gain from their fellow committee members greatly assists them within their own careers and businesses.
