May 25, 2018 9:18 AM

A contingent of major Nevada sports betting authorities will journey to Cleveland in July for the Summer Meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS), July 13-15.

The NCLGS Committee on Emerging Forms of Gaming, chaired by Nevada Assemblyman Keith Pickard, will focus on "Learning from Nevada Sports Betting Model of Regulation."

Scheduled sports betting panelists are:

–Art Manteris, Vice President Race & Sports Operations, Station Casinos

–Joe Asher, CEO, William Hill US 

–Karl Bennison, Chief, Enforcement Division, Nevada Gaming Control Board 

–Becky Harris, Chair, Nevada Gaming Control Board 

"Nevada is the only state that has effectively governed sports betting for many years, in many different types of facilities and in different markets," said Pickard, who represents part of Clark County. "What better way for states preparing for the introduction of regulated sports betting to learn about the Nevada model than to listen directly to a team of experts who live and work in the Silver State?"

Other NCLGS Summer Meeting sessions will examine sports betting from other vantage points including:

–Keynote Address from Casey Schwab, Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs for the NFL Players Association 

–NCLGS committees on State-Federal Relations, Casinos, and Lotteries 

–International Masters of Gaming Law (IMGL) Masterclass titled "Legal Implications of the Supreme Court Ruling on Sports Betting" 

–IMGL Masterclass entitled "State of Online Gaming in the US"
