AGA Successfully Launches Publicity Campaign

Published June 3, 2014 by OCR Editor

Public awareness and acceptance is the objective of the new American Gaming Association information campaign.

"Effective and Productive" Launch

American Gaming Association President and CEO Geoff Freeman called the inaugural AGA Government Affairs Fly-In event "effective and productive."   The gathering in the nation's capital provided a forum for over 40 AGA leading professionals from influential departments in government affairs, communications, public affairs and compliance in the nation's capital to connect and diversify the AGA spectrum of gaming professionals.

AGA Strategic Priorities

Freeman identified the organizational priorities of increasing engagement within the AGA's newly launched Get to Know Gaming campaign designed to promote the value of gaming through informing the public of the social benefits of gaming in terms of community contributions and regional economic advantages.

New Research Study to be Released

Freeman presented factual research supporting this claim as well, previewing soon-to-be-released large scale AGA research providing a realistic portrait to the public of the actual range of demographics that casino visitors to America represent, which is meant to dispel lingering common stereotypes regarding casino patrons.

Gaming Legislation

Further research from AGA concerns an overview of Congressional legislation on the state of gaming play in Washington DC, focused primarily on relevant gaming legislation such as legislation such as immigration, tax reform, travel and tourism promotion, and terrorism risk insurance.

Gaming Regulation

Further insight into how the political landscape is shifting to integrate gaming regulation is provided by University of Virginia's Center for Politics founder and director Dr. Larry Sabato, with greater insight into federal regulatory compliance in regards to Anti-Money Laundering laws available through opportunities for engagement with FinCEN, the oversight agency.

Networking Opportunity

In addition to information sharing, Greenberg emphasized the dual benefits of networking that also took place between the professionals and officials who attended, pointing out the opportunity that the Government Affairs Fly-In event provided to "share information and discuss issues facing the gaming industry."

Greenberg concluded his update by addressing future plans for the AGA campaign, which revolve around increasing opportunities to identify and address issues of the most common interest among all members and future event participants.
