See the link to an article regarding sports themed tip boards for the Northstar Problem Gambling Alliance of which I serve as a board member and treasurer.
We have asked both Tim Walz and Jeff Johnson for the winner of the November election to address us in Bemidji. Both have replied that they have us down for an appearance request, but are making no commitments until after the election. We have also asked them if they have a position on our tax issue, but have received no response from either Johnson or Walz at this time. If you know either of the candidates, ask them where they stand on our issue. We will let you know if they do get back to us with a position statement.
You may have heard this week that another charitable gaming organization (Roseville Area Youth Hockey Association, not a member of ACM) has apparently been the victim of theft of gambling funds by organization employees. This is always hard to hear and tougher to understand. If your organization does not have a gambling committee you need to start one. If you suspect that something is going on in your organization that needs to be looked into you have an obligation to the organization to call attention to that. ACM has associate members that offer accounting services, accounting software, consulting and attorney services. The more eyes the better is great advice.
