The Gambling Portal Webmasters Association (GPWA) has announced that it has teamed up with Poker Affiliate Listings, the Association of Players, Casinos and Webmasters and AffiliateGuardDog.com to create the Affiliate Forum Alliance.
The Alliance will have its own website and will endeavour to create an environment where the reasonable concerns of affiliates come first in forums designed to support iGaming affiliates. All of the new group’s constituent forums will retain their independence and identities while working together to increase the level of transparency in the industry.
“I am very pleased to announce the creation of the Affiliate Forum Alliance of which the GPWA is one of four founding forums,” said Michael Corfman Executive Director for the GPWA.
“We have joined together in response to recent industry events that we feel are inconsistent with the tenants upon which the Alliance is founded. Many affiliates have expressed the view that a fellow affiliate was recently treated in a way that seemed to indicate that business came before the fair treatment of the affiliate. And we believe banning members from affiliate forums without due process is inconsistent both with the reasonable concerns of affiliates and with the principles of transparency to which we are committed.
”Personally, I am very excited about our decision to form the Alliance and am extremely pleased to be working together even more closely with the other members. I strongly believe that by working together we will be able to accomplish substantially more than we would be able to accomplish independently and I look forward to other forums joining the Alliance in the future to make it even stronger.”
