Subject: IAGR Announcement of New Trustees

Dear IAGR members,

The Board of Trustees recently sent out the Call for Nominations in seeking to fill six Trustee positions.  By the conclusion of the nomination period on 28 September, four nominations were received from the membership, plus two nomination forms for the Trustees standing for re-election. 

According to the IAGR Bylaws Section 6.5(1) Election of New Members to Board of Trustees:
  if the number of nominations is equal to or fewer than the number of anticipated vacancies, the nominees will be automatically confirmed as Board of Trustees members at the next scheduled meeting of the membership.

By this provision, a formal election process is not necessary and the nominees will be officially confirmed at the October 28 Annual Members Meeting in Philadelphia, USA.

Please join us in welcoming your new Trustees:

Håkan Hallstedt, Director General, Swedish Gambling Authority (Europe)
Jerry See, Chief Executive, Casino Regulatory Authority of Singapore (Asia/Oceania)
Fortune Sekgaphane, Chief Executive, North West Gambling Board (Africa)
Nick Tofiluk, Director - Regulatory Operations, UK Gambling Commission (Europe)

Also, the following Trustees stood for re-election to a second and final three-year term.  As there were no additional nominations from these regions, they are also automatically confirmed to continue their second term as Trustees.

Susan Hensel, Director of Licensing, Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (North America)
Michael Sarquis, Executive Director, Queensland Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation (Asia/Oceania)

Profiles of the new Trustees are attached for your reference.

We appreciate the willingness of these individuals to commit their time to lead IAGR over the next few years.  And I look forward to introducing them to our members at the upcoming conference this month! 

Peet Meng LAU, IAGR President
On behalf of the IAGR Board of Trustees
