The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) announced the appointment of a new Director for an Organizational Members seat and the election of a new Vice President earlier this week. The NCPG is an advocacy organization for people and their families who are affected by problem gambling.

Raquel Buari will fill the Organization Members seat on the Board of Directors following the resignation of Chelsea Turner. Ms. Buari is the Vice President of Compliance for Four Winds Casinos, owned and operated by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi in southwest Michigan and Indiana. Ms. Buari began working for Four Winds in 2009, and has led the compliance team since 2014, including responsible gaming efforts. 

Ms. Buari served on the NCPG Planning Committee for the Tribal Summit on Responsible Gaming and the Awards Committee. She is a board member for the Michigan Association on Problem Gambling and the Indiana Council on Problem Gambling. Ms. Buari is a graduate of Ball State University and Valparaiso University School of Law. She will serve for the remainder of the term through July 2022.

"I look forward to continuing to contribute to the NCPG by bringing forward my experience with Tribal Gaming, law and regulation particularly in regard to casino operators," said Ms. Buari. "I'm keenly interested in how operators can continue to effectively improve their initiatives, policies and procedures for guests who are experiencing problems with gambling."

Stacy Shaw has been elected to the office of Vice President. Ms. Shaw is serving in an Organizational seat for the Oregon Lottery and has decades of experience. She provides leadership and strategic direction for the Lottery's responsible gaming and problem gambling programs. 

"NCPG is honored to have leaders like Raquel and Stacy," said Executive Director of NCPG Keith Whyte. "Their perspectives and experiences will be invaluable in helping to guide our organization through these difficult times."
