The National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG) is holding its 34thNational Conference on Gambling Addiction & Responsible Gaming virtually this November and December. The Conference brings together local, national, and international experts in responsible gambling and problem gambling to help educate the industry on new methods of prevention, treatment, and responsible gaming.

The Conference will feature several tracks, including Treatment, Recovery, Prevention, Community, Military & Veterans, Tribal, Sports, and Responsible Gaming & Regulation. Through these tracks, the Conference will explore the expansion of online gambling during the pandemic, the impact of cashless wagering systems, and how to protect consumers and their families to help mitigate harm.

This year’s Conference will have two different programs: the Main Conference and the Master Classes. The Main Conference will be held November 5-6 and 12-13, from 12-4 PM with optional networking from 4-5 PM. Recordings will be available after the Main Conference for about 30 days after the event. Up to 16 CEUs will be available through the Main Conference, and the program will cover a wide range of information in the various tracks. This year’s keynote speaker will be Lori Rugle, PhD, the 2019 recipient of the NCPG Lifetime Award for Direct Service.

The Master Classes will be held December 2, 3, and 9, from 1-3 PM. Up to 6 CEUs will be available through the Master Classes, however, seats will be limited to allow for more direct interaction. Featured speakers include Heather Chapman, PhD on December 2, Julie Hynes, Dan Trolaro, Jody Bechtold, ICGC-II, BACC, and Cam Adair on December 3, and Mark Potter, Dan Spencer, and Paul Buck on December 9.

“We’ve heard from many of you about how important our National Conference is, offering as it does a unique opportunity for people from all facets of the behavioral health fields and gambling industry to meet, collaborate on solving problems, and learn from each other,” said Keith Whyte, Executive Director of NCPG. “We believe that holding the ‘split’ conference in this way will optimize learning and networking opportunities for our attendees.”

Registration will be separate for the Main Conference and the Master Classes. Those interested in the Conference can find more information here and may register using this form. Questions should be directed to ncpg@ncpgambling.org.
