NIGC to Offer Regional Training in Connecticut
Washington, DC March 1, 2011 — The National Indian Gaming Commission (NIGC/Commission) is offering a regional training on March 29-31, 2011 in Uncasville, Connecticut. This comprehensive 3-day training is being offered in conjunction with the Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut.
The NIGC generally offers in-depth regional training twice a year per region based on input from Tribes. This training will focus on strategies to effectively regulate gaming technology, minimum internal control standards, gaming forensics, and ethics refresher training. Training will be provided by the NIGC Enforcement Division, Audit Division and the Office of General Counsel. Tribal Gaming Regulatory Authorities, Casino Compliance Personnel, and Casino Operators are welcome and encouraged to attend.
“Providing technical assistance and training to Tribes is a major initiative of this Commission and provides tools for tribal regulators to maintain the integrity of the industry. Working in partnership with Tribes to safeguard the industry that is so vitally important to many communities throughout Indian country is of the utmost importance to this agency” said Chairwoman Stevens.
The NIGC is an independent regulatory agency established within the Department of the Interior pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of 1988.Download the PDF here.
