The California Nations Indian Gaming Association last month announced the election of Daniel J. Tucker to the post of chairman and Steve Stallings to the position of treasurer for the organization, which is the largest association of tribal gaming representatives in California.
Tucker is back in familiar territory, having served as chairman of CNIGA from 1995 to 2001. Tucker is also the chairman of the Sycuan Band of the Kumeyaay Nation.
“I am honored to again serve as the chairman of CNIGA,” Tucker said. “I look forward to working with all tribes in California to help safeguard the sovereign right of tribes to conduct gaming on our lands.”
Stallings, a member of the Rincon Band of Luiseno Indians, is also the senior vice president and director of Wells Fargo’s Native American Banking Services.
“I am honored to have been elected the CNIGA treasurer,” Stallings said. “I intend to use my experience in the financial services sector to help strengthen the organization.”
Tucker and Stallings were both elected for two-year terms.
