National Council on Problem Gambling Membership Program

  • Membership offers substantial benefits, including free monthly webinars on a variety of topics in problem gambling and responsible gaming; discounts on our national conference and the IGCCB certified gambling counselor exam, as well as optional subscription to an important periodical. See below for more information.
  • Multi-year Membership: 3-year and Lifetime Memberships are now available!  Make an extraordinary commitment to having a voice in Washington for problem gambling, or simply take advantage of the 10% discount or the convenience of renewing your membership at the same time as your certification.  Click here for more information about the different levels and benefits.
  • Membership is required for anyone wishing to be nominated to NCPG’s Board of Directors or serve as chair of an NCPG committee; it is also recommended for anyone who wants to serve on a committee, as members are generally given priority for those opportunities.


Individual Memberships are offered in four categories: Individual, Individual Plus, Honored Senior and Student.

Joint Memberships are Individual Memberships offered at a substantial discount to those who are a member of your Affiliate State Chapter. To contact the Affiliate in your state to inquire about memberships, please click here.


Organizational Membership is for corporations and other businesses, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies, including Tribal government. There are three levels – Platinum, Gold and Silver. Nonprofits and government agencies may participate using substantially discounted rates. Depending on the level chosen, a number of staff or Board members are entitled to Individual Plus Memberships as part of the benefits of the Organizational Membership.  To join, please download the membership form and when complete, email it to (our system does not allow online membership sign-ups for this category of membership).

You can see a current list of Organizational Members here.  Organizational members play an important role in supporting NCPG operations and programs — thank you!

There are NCPG Affiliates across the country; if you would like to start an Affiliate in your state, please contact Keith Whyte, NPCG Executive Director at or 202.547.9204.
