Tribal Gaming Office

The Gaming Commission Department is established by the Gaming Tribal Ordinance GR-09-95, as amended in 2002, enacted by the Community Council. Operating Funds are appropriated utilizing Gaming Funds processed through the tribal funding process.

The Department is governed by five appointed Gaming Commissioners who have been given distinct duties and responsibilities as regulatory officials.

The Gaming Commissioners hires the Executive Director, who reports directly to the Gaming Commission. The Chairman of the Gaming Commission acts as Supervisor for the Executive Director.

All support staff under the Executive Director are hired by the Executive Director and are guided by the GRIC HR Policies, and are classified as tribally licensed as key gaming employees and tribal employees of the Community.
