Casino Affiliate Convention (Amsterdam 2008) Agenda
Casino Affiliate Convention is proud to sponsor the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). Programs like the NCMEC helped find 15 year old Elizabeth Smart on March 12, 2003 after 9 months of being missing. Please take a moment to view the pictures and report if you have seen them.

We are also proud to sponsor the National Council on Problem Gambling (NCPG), an organization devoted to the assistance in treatment for all types of problem gamblers and their families as well as encourage research and programs for prevention and education.
