Sep 5, 2006 8:51 AM

A strong group of tribal gaming and casino marketing experts is set for Raving’s 9th Indian Gaming National Marketing Conference, Sept. 25-27, at the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California.

Highlighting the speaker roster are three keynote presenters: Anthony Miranda, Tom Rodgers and Frances Snyder.

Miranda is member of the Pechanga Band of Luiseno Indians, and serves as chairman of the powerful California Nations Indian Gaming Association (CNIGA), a statewide organization devoted to advancing the lives of Native Americans — economically, socially and politically.

Rodgers is a member of the Blackfeet Tribe, and is chairman and president of Carlyle Consulting, a government affairs consulting practice that provides comprehensive management of proposed legislation initiatives for a variety of clients in the gaming field.

Snyder is a member of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, and serves as a public relations consultant for the tribe and its Chumash Casino Resort. She has written extensively on tribal gaming.

The conference moves to California this year following many successful years in Minnesota. The format and curriculum provides access to gaming professionals, who will address the unique needs of those working in marketing, promotions and operations of tribal gaming facilities.
