How the Industry is Extending Responsible Practices to New Types of Gaming
In this episode of The Stories Behind the Bet, Philip James and Bill Miller discuss the importance of responsible gaming as sports betting becomes more streamlined in the industry, and what the American Gaming Association is doing to ensure its Code of Conduct fits the bill.
The current President and CEO of the AGA, Bill Miller has spent more than three decades representing business interests in Washington, D.C. He was the Senior Vice President of the Business Roundtable, a Partner at international corporate communications firm Brunswick, and a lobbyist, leading the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Political Affairs and Federal Relations efforts. There, Miller acted as the National Political Director. From 1994 to 1999, Miller served as Chief of Staff to Maryland Representative Constance A. Morella.
In each of these positions, he advocated for the business community, a passion that he’s still able to realize at the AGA. Miller holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland and a law degree from American University.
