Test lab and product certification consultancy BMM Testlabs announced it is supporting the Indian Gaming Association Tradeshow and Convention in San Diego, which will take place March 27-30, as a sponsor of the show. The company will be supporting the Opening Ceremony, Chairman’s Luncheon, and more.
Holly Billy, Senior Tribal Services Manager, commented: “BMM has been a proud member and supporter of the Indian Gaming Association since 2006. This year we are delighted to be sponsoring the IGA tradeshow while also taking part in various presentations, panels and events throughout the week.”
“BMM is honored to be able to work alongside our Tribal partners at the prestigious Tribal event and looks forward to welcoming guests to our private VIP room on the show floor,” she added.
BMM Testlabs will be presenting a donation to Spirit of Sovereignty through BMM’s Next Generation Initiative. “Spirit of Sovereignty is an IGA-advised donor fund that helps make higher education a reality for deserving Indian students. BMM’s Next Generation Initiative is very pleased to be able to make a difference in tomorrow’s Tribal communities today,” Billy continued.
BMM Testlabs will be presenting the donation to the Spirit of Sovereignty on March 29 in the Tribal Leader’s Lounge. On the same day, it will discuss creative, innovative and effective regulation on trending issues faced by Tribal gaming regulators at the BMM-sponsored panel “Redefining the Elements of Vendor Onboarding to Install.”
Panelists include Myron Salvador (Executive Director, Santa Clara Pueblo Gaming Commission), Jalene Wells (Gaming Commissioner, Eastern Shawnee Gaming Commission, Jose Gonzalez (Director of Compliance, Tuolumne Me-Wuk Tribal Gaming Agency), Jennifer Lasher (Licensing Manager, Snoqualmie Gaming Commission), and moderated by Jerad Swimmer (Director Business Development, BIG Cyber).
In line with its commitment to tribal gaming, last week BMM announced it is partnering with the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES) for a summer 2023 Tribal gaming internship program. Applicants will be selected ‘in the upcoming weeks.’
In a press release, the company said it ‘looks forward to welcoming paid STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) interns into its laboratory to receive hands-on experience assessing gaming technology integrity, accountability, functionality, and more with its expert team of test engineers.’
