Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak has announced that Nevada Gaming Control Board’s Chairwoman, Sandra Douglass Morgan, has resigned and will be leaving her position as of November 6th. 


Morgan has served on the board since 2019 and is leaving her role to “pursue an exciting professional opportunity.” Sisolak will announce his selected appointment to fill the seat in the coming weeks.  


Sisolak said Morgan’s “steady hand and unmatched leadership has been critical in guiding Nevada’s gaming industry through one of the most turbulent periods in its history.” 

“It has been a privilege to lead the Nevada Gaming Control Board with such a rich and proficient history in gaming regulation. Working with an outstanding and dedicated staff throughout the state has been the honor of a lifetime,” Douglass Morgan said in a statement. “In the last two years, the Board has ensured that gaming licensees adopted and implemented policies for all types of discrimination and harassment, modernized its regulations to allow cashless wagering at machines and table games, investigated the merger creating the world’s largest casino company, and adopted COVID-19 mitigation measures.” 


“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Board agents have worn multiple hats beyond their normal job duties to regulate a safe reopening and continued safe operations of gaming establishments for employees, residents, and visitors,” Douglass Morgan continued. “I was and will always be proud to have been a part of these numerous accomplishments. I want to thank Governor Sisolak for the opportunity to serve in this position.”
