The Summer Meeting agenda includes legislative committee sessions on Responsible Gaming, Pari-Mutuels, Lotteries, State-Federal Relations, and Casinos, as well as general sessions that examine sports betting, retail gaming, and new/emerging forms of gambling. Colorado Senate President Kevin Grantham will deliver the Keynote Address.

"These meetings give legislators, industry leaders and other stakeholders an opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss best practices," said Fredric Gushin, Managing Director of Spectrum Gaming Group, which serves as NCLGS executive director. "We learn from thought leaders about new forms of gaming that are in the pipeline, as well as legislative updates."

The NCLGS 2017 Summer Meeting has been approved to offer 10 Continuing Legal Education credits by the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education.
While rooms are still available at the host Westin Denver Downtown, attendees may find that due to high Summer Meeting demand some dates have been filled at the special conference room rate or may not be available.

NCLGS does not promote or oppose gaming but is primarily concerned with the proper regulation of the industry. The NCLGS Foundation is the educational and research arm of NCLGS. The 501(c)(3) non-profit is a source of non-partisan data on issues of gaming legislation and regulation.
