Tribal Gaming & Hospitality Magazine Announces Advisory Board

Reno, Nevada – The new Tribal Gaming and Hospitality Magazine will hit thousands of inboxes this September, providing gaming and hospitality executives and suppliers a dedicated resource to help grow their businesses and learn forward-thinking best practices. It is the only Native-owned, quarterly magazine, dedicated specifically to Tribal gaming and hospitality and will have a robust website with additional web exclusive articles and digital ad options.

This magazine replaces Solutions Magazine, an online and limited print magazine published since 2001 by Reno-based Raving Consulting. Industry-wide reception has been significant from industry leaders including the following inaugural advisory board members:

  • Ernest L. Stevens, Jr., Chairman, National Indian Gaming Association (NIGA)
  • Janie Dillard, Senior Executive Officer, Division of Commerce, Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma
  • Jay Garcia, Lieutenant Governor of Santa Ana Pueblo & Chairman of the Board of Directors, Santa Ana Pueblo and Santa Ana Golf Club Inc.
  • Andrew Hofstetter, Chairman, Tribal Gaming Protection Network
  • Sheila Morago, Executive Director, Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association
  • Joe Nayquonabe, Jr., CEO, Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures
  • Michael Peters, COO, Little Creek Casino Resort
  • Victor Rocha, Publisher & Editor, and Conference Chair, National Indian Gaming Association
  • Pam Shaw, CEO, Kaw Gaming, Inc.
  • Jason Younker, Assistant Vice President and Advisor to the President on Sovereignty and Government-to-Government Relations at the University of Oregon

Supporting this publication is Chairman Ernest L. Stevens, Jr., “I’ve been working with Raving for many years and I appreciate the progress they have made in the industry as they continue to promote and enhance Tribal government gaming. It’s a great honor to be a part of the team.” Stevens is currently in his ninth two-year term as the leader of the National Indian Gaming Association.

Raving CEO Deana Scott states, “As a Native-owned organization, we are incredibly passionate about helping Tribal gaming organizations do more than get ‘up to speed,’ but rather, provide them with information to be true leaders in their markets. We do this by providing relevant, candid and transparent content by writers who are operators writing for operators.”

Long-time Tribal industry executive, member of the Squaxin Island Tribe and TG&H Advisory Board Member, Michael Peters, COO, Little Creek Casino Resort, seconds the firms history of being straight-shooters. He added, “Raving has never been the type of firm to tell you what you want to hear. Raving is going to provide candid, timely, solution-orientated resources to help you succeed. This publication is going to be even more responsive to meeting our operational needs.”

When asked what makes this publication different, Scott added, “What I’m really excited about is that we’ll be highlighting Tribal gaming organizations who are integrating best practices, sharing stories of uncommon generosity and diligence by Tribal members, and also featuring stories on suppliers that went the extra mile to help Tribal casinos be successful, and are integrating giving and corporate responsibility to Tribes into their operations.”

Raving has partnered with RDG Media to produce the glossy magazine and website which provide full print and digital solutions to interested advertisers. Randy Green, President, RDG Media, said, “I’m thrilled that Scott has garnered the critical support of these top industry leaders. These advisory members are such a huge asset and will assist the TG&H team in shaping the content and vision of Tribal Gaming and Hospitality Magazine. It’s thrilling to be partnered with such a respected organization.”
