The world’s leading gaming testing laboratory and technical consultancy, BMM Testlabs recently made donations to the Washington Indian Gaming Association Scholarship Fundraiser, National Indian Gaming Association’s Spirit of Sovereignty Foundation, National UNITY Council and the Notah Begay Foundation, among other tribal organizations. The contributions are part of BMM’s Next Generation Initiative that provides access to financial and educational resources for Native American youth, health and education causes.
Additionally, recently BMM staff attended several Native American events, including Indian Gaming 2015; the Western Indian Gaming Conference, hosted by the Rincon Tribe of California; and the North West Indian Gaming Conference at Tulalip. BMM also participated in the education tracks at Indian Gaming 2015 and most recently presented a training session at the Wisconsin Gaming Regulators Conference. Last month BMM joined the Washington Indian Gaming Association.
BMM Director of Tribal Gaming Jodi DiLascio said, “BMM is committed to making a positive difference to Native American communities facing challenges, and the Next Generation Initiative is helping us reach this goal. Having the opportunity to show our support to the local communities we work with throughout Indian Country is something we take great pride in.”
Spirit of Sovereignty Corporate Relations Officer David Garelick said, “I can’t tell you how much we appreciate and respect BMM’s generous contributions to the Spirit of Sovereignty and your other charitable endeavors. May your example be an inspiration to others.”
Shelly Griffin, chief inspector, Ute Mountain Gaming Commission, added, “Ute Mountain Gaming Commission was really pleased to have BMM Testlabs come out to participate in our Career Fair. It really shows the commitment that BMM has in supporting not just our gaming commission but more importantly, our community members and their future!”
DiLascio concluded, “BMM continues to be engaged with and prepared to support the tribal market in North America. We are honored to be able to give back to the Native American communities and support these worthy tribal organizations through the Next Generation Initiative.”
