Our Programs


    • National Conference on Problem Gambling The oldest and largest annual conference of its kind.  Approximately 500 regulators, legislators, counselors, researchers, industry executives and recovering gamblers attend each year.  Specific in-depth training is provided for all aspects of the field and top researchers present their latest findings. Up to 30 hours of Continuing Education Units may be earned over the 2-day Pre-Conference Workshops and 2-day Main Conference.  The location changes each year, hosted by a state Affiliate and offering each region of the country easy access on a rotating basis.


    • Gift Responsibly Campaign encourages adults not to give lottery tickets to underage children/teens as holiday gifts – many problem gamblers report that they began gambling during childhood and this campaign aims to help prevent it.


    • Problem Gambling Awareness Month Our annual nationwide grassroots campaign launches around ‘March Madness’ to educate healthcare providers and the public about problem gambling and practices of responsible gambling.
