UPDATE, 10/24/18. The PGCB provided our club with the opportunity to learn about The Board, its activities and how it functions. Our speaker, Director Doug Harbach, provided an engaging and informative presentation on the aforementioned as well as insightful answers to the many questions that we had. It was a dynamic and enjoyable luncheon for both our members as well as our guests from a nearby club who were also in attendance. Thank you to all who attended!
The establishment of a casino gaming industry in Pennsylvania and the work of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to tightly regulate this industry is important to all Commonwealth residents. Casino gaming is providing annual school property tax reductions, increased economic opportunities in the form of jobs and business partnerships, and a needed boost to the horse racing industry.
The PGCB has an interest in making sure that citizens are well-informed of this impact and its regulatory work and offers a Speakers Bureau to provide face-to-face interaction with organizations. The Power Point presentation provided by the PGCB normally lasts about 25 minutes plus time for questions.
Our speaker(s) for this program, which will be part of our regular bi-weekly meeting on Tuesday, October 16th, 2018, is Commissioner Obra S. Kernodle IV and/or Director of Communications Doug Harbach. Their respective biographies are found below.
