CNIGA Names New Chairman

The California Nations Indian Gaming Association (CNIGA) last month announced the election of Steve Stallings, councilman of the Rincon Band of Luiseño Indians, to the position of chairman and Damon Sandoval, councilman of the Morongo Band of Mission Indians, to the position of the organization’s vice chairman. Dennis Hendricks, councilman from the Tuolumne Band of Me-Wuk Indians, was re-elected to his third consecutive term as treasurer.

They join CNIGA Secretary John Williams, who serves as vice chairman of the United Auburn Indian Community, as the 2015-16 officers of the state’s oldest and largest advocate representing California tribes engaged in gaming enterprises or supportive of gaming initiatives.

Stallings has served on the CNIGA executive committee for six years as both the vice chairman and treasurer. Sandoval has served on the CNIGA executive committee for eight years as the central district representative.
