Brnovich has served as Arizona's Attorney General since January 2015. He previously served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona and as the state's Assistant Attorney General.

The NCLGS Winter and Summer meetings examine topical gaming issues of primary concern to legislators and other gaming policymakers, and include panel presentations that provide insights from experts with varying viewpoints.
