About

The Organization

Our goal is to have our membership include representation from all states providing publicly funded problem gambling services in America. In doing so, we develop, enhance, and support partnerships with stakeholders in the problem gambling field. In addition, we address the issues and concerns in this field from a public administration perspective. It is in this area that the APGSA offers its membership an opportunity that cannot be found elsewhere – the collaboration and support of other administrators in this emerging field in the public sector.

 

APGSA Mission and Vision

The Association of Problem Gambling Service Administrators (APGSA) supports the development of services that will reduce the impact of problem gambling. APGSA is an active association that enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of its member organizations through support, information dissemination, and adherence to professional standards.
