    • The importance of Sovereignty to the tribes and how it affects responsible gambling efforts.
    • Any cooperative efforts that tribes have with other tribes to develop and implement responsible gambling programs.
    • An evaluation of how the pandemic has affected casino operations for tribes and how a tool like Telehealth was expanded to provide more service for people.
    • An analysis of how the program gambling helpline works in their state and whether there should be a more centralized and national helpline number for all the states.
    • Opinions of what the emergence of sports betting means for the tribes and how it is changing their current responsible gambling efforts.
    • What effects casinos have had on specific tribes and how it was different before the Indian Gaming and Regulatory Acts of 1988 became law.
