The Summer Meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) will be held July 11-13 at the InterContinental Magnificent Mile, with dozens of lawmakers from throughout North America participating.

Nevada Senator Keith Pickard, president of NCLGS, attributes the expected turnout to the pent-up demand for information and the growing number of legislative and regulatory policy issues that elected officials will be confronting in coming months.

NCLGS will fully abide by federal, state and local guidelines in effect at the time regarding public events.

NCLGS meetings are organized and produced by Spectrum Gaming Group, which serves as NCLGS Executive Director.
