1527 – PlaySmart – Building The Culture

We continue to encourage all members to build on their Social Responsibility (RG) Culture in their own Centres/Business. Within our sector we have seen strong engagement and alignment to Responsible Play. It is important that we collectively continue to support and build on the foundation we have fostered over the last few years.

We see globally that this area of the business is evolving and we need to maintain a clear focus and commitment to the area. Our Chair & President has consistently directed us to undertake a balanced and measured approach to bring the sector along.

1528 – People On The Move

It has been announced from the Chief Operating Officer (Ms. Lori Sullivan) that, with the departure of Mr. Rick Gray (Vice President, cGaming OLG), Mr. David Fraser will undertake an interim position as Senior Director – cGaming while the OLG undertakes a broader organizational review of the Corporation.

I am sure you will join me in wishing David every success in this Interim, which is an important role in the OLG. Well Done David.
