Join us for our January General Membership Meeting! Our topic will be:

“Problem Gambling and Cannabis: What Employers Need to Know”
We’ll begin with informal networking and discussion at 5:30 PM.
The main program will begin at 6:00 PM.
Last year started with the legalization of mobile sports betting in New York State, and ending with a new casino opening within our region. The ubiquity of smartphones has made it easier than ever to lead to problem gambling issues, including on the job.
This year, our region will be adapting to the legalization of cannabis in New York State, with the first legal recreational marijuana dispensaries opening this month.
For our January General Membership experts, we have two superb experts who can help guide employers, co-workers, family members and friends through the thorny issues of on-the-job behavior, addiction, increased awareness, and pointing those adversely affected to where they can get services and help.
  • Jeff Hanley, Associate Executive Director of the BRI
  • Leilani Yizar-Reid, Team Leader, The Mid-Hudson Problem Gambling Resource Center
  • Matt Persanis, Esq., Elefante & Persanis LLP
