The 23rd annual international Executive Development Program for the gaming industry will be offered by the University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, November 14-23, at Harveys Lake Tahoe.
Cosponsored by UNR’s Institute for the Study of Gambling and Commercial Gaming, College of Business and Extended Studies, and by UNLV’s International Gaming Institute, the program was led for 23 years by William R. Eadington until his death in February.
The University of Nevada, Las Vegas has joined with the University of Nevada, Reno to co-sponsor the Executive Development Program. Co-moderators for the 2013 program will be industry leaders Bo Bernhard, executive director of the UNLV International Gaming Institute; and Mark Lipparelli, former chair of the Nevada State Gaming Control Board, member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Nevada, Reno Foundation, president of Gioco Ventures, LLC, and member of the first EDP graduating class. Both were students of Eadington and have been longtime EDP faculty members.
The only program of its kind in the world, the exclusive nine-day series is designed for upper-level gaming managers, board members, government regulators and gaming professionals in positions of substantial executive and leadership responsibilities.
