LAS VEGAS, March 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The State Bar of Nevada's Gaming Law Section (GLS) merged it's Annual Bank Secrecy Act Conference with the National AML Title 31 Conference presented by Casino Essentials. The GLS continues to show its support toward AML compliance as a "Diamond Sponsor" of the Casino Essentials' National AML Title 31 Conference.
With this merger, Casino Essentials continues to show a strong commitment to the gaming industry's educational needs by consolidating the GLS's Bank Secrecy Act one-day symposium with Casino Essentials National Title 31 Conference. "Combining these conferences gives us an extraordinary opportunity to deliver a consistent message across the nation while attracting exceptional speakers and attendees in the gaming industry," said Mindy Letourneau, CEO of Casino Essentials.
