THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE 35TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE ON GAMBLING ADDICTION & RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING!

The National Council on Problem Gambling would like to thank everyone who participated in the 35TH National Conference on Gambling Addiction & Responsible Gambling. 


The 2021 National Conference on Gambling Addiction and Responsible Gambling theme will recognize the pervasive effects of the pandemic. Its theme is ‘Embracing Change Together’ and all the conference activities will occur online. The pandemic has also caused changes in how people can seek and receive help, and ways that responsible gambling and prevention programs can best be delivered.

With this year being its 35th iteration, the conference is the oldest and largest annual national conference that brings together people from all facets of healthcare, research, government, and the many segments of the gambling industry. With top-notch national and international experts as speakers, as well as those who work on local and state levels, the conference is a unique resource for everyone who works in these fields, as well as those in recovery and concerned others. From tele-therapy to digital tools to insightful policy, the conference provides both detailed in-depth knowledge and cross-training opportunities.

Now more than ever, it is critical that we all work together to learn about new methods for prevention, treatment and responsible gambling as well as basics and continuing developments in the field.
