A Message From the President

G2E has passed and what an exciting time it was for all of us. We are being recognized as an association that produces results and provides the industry with the solutions it is looking for. After all these years it was heartwarming to notice statements such as "Powered by GSA" printed on the top glass of gaming devices. There were multiple demonstrations that highlighted some of the applications that are enabled with our standards.
