President and CEO Julie Hakman will be joined by AmericanChecked’s VP of business development, Kelli Weaver, to discuss how vital thorough background screening is to gaming operations and their bottom lines.

The presentation, titled Does In-House Screening Protect the Back of House?, addresses the many overlapping tools Tribal gaming commissions rely on to protect their operations and how some of those processes may not provide accurate and compliant background screening reports.

Attendees will learn how to effectively screen applicants and vendors without placing their facilities at risk.
