Washington, DC June 2, 2011 — The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC) is offering Regional training on June 28, 29 and 30, 2011 in Blue Lake, California at the Blue Lake Casino.
This comprehensive 3-day training is being offered in conjunction with the Blue Lake Gaming Commission. The training will focus on IT and operational audits, gaming forensics, and a Title 31 presentation by the Internal Revenue Service. Additionally, the agenda will include a roundtable discussion in which participants will share tribal gaming best practices. Tribal Gaming Regulatory Authorities, casino compliance personnel, and casino operators are welcome and encouraged to attend.
“Technical assistance and training is one of the major initiatives that this Commission is dedicated to providing to Tribes”, states NIGC Chairwoman Tracie Stevens. “The opportunity to offer joint training with other federal agencies, coupled with a roundtable discussion of best practices, provides a broad and substantive seminar for attendees.” Chairwoman Stevens adds.
