Membership Types, Levels and Benefits

The mission of the National Council is to provide a voice on problem gambling issues at the national level, advocating for funding and services to provide prevention, education, treatment, enforcement, research, regulation and recovery. Our goal is to improve public health and wellness by reducing the personal, social and economic costs of problem gambling.  We accomplish this by leading state and national stakeholders in the development of comprehensive policy and programs in problem gambling and responsible gaming.

Affiliates

State Affiliate Members are not-for-profit organizations that have implemented a comprehensive program in problem gambling and have completed a formal application and review process with NCPG. There is only one Affiliate per state, but there can be more than one state represented by one Affiliate. For help and information in creating a new Affiliate for a state or region that does not already have one, please contact NCPG.

Individual Joint Memberships with State Affiliates

Some State Affiliates have an Individual Membership program and may offer a Joint Individual Membership that includes membership in both the State Affiliate and NCPG at a substantial savings. Contact your State Affiliate for details.
