CNIGA Doubles Down on Innovation

Non-profit tribal gaming association launches exclusive new app in the iTunes and Android stores.

[Minneapolis, MN, May 7, 2018]

Today the California Nations Indian Gaming Association (CNIGA) formally announced its new communication app is available for download. The app, developed by partner Red Circle Agency, will continually provide CNIGA members with access to critical information related to its stewardship of Indian Gaming on Federally-recognized Indian lands in California.

“As the largest regional gaming association of tribal governments, we knew we wanted to revolutionize how we communicate important legislative information to our members,” said CNIGA Executive Director Susan Jensen. “Red Circle was able to make our vision a reality with a custom mobile app that does just that.”

CNIGA’s mobile app is free to its members and provides instant access to breaking news, information and communications on current key legislation, meetings & continuing education schedules and a social media feed. What’s more, the app can be set to automatically send alerts to tribal leaders and their staff, reminding them to follow up on key issues.

“Information is the great equalizer. But staying informed is not necessarily the same thing as staying connected,” said Red Circle CEO and member of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe, Chad Germann. “We’re a results-oriented company. So we felt like the real opportunity with CNIGA was to level-up the cohesive strength of its members. Partnering on a mobile app proved to be the best way to do that.”

The CNIGA app is available in the iTunes store and Android market.
