Utah to Wyoming

teamstate4 In early 2016 ED Publications wanted to get an accurate snapshot of the current status of statewide adult club owner associations from coast to coast, so we hit the phones and emails. What follows here is a state-by-state breakdown on what is—and what isn’t—happening in each state as far as adult club owner associations go. 

     In most of these state listings we have included the names of clubs that have attended the Annual Gentlemen’s Club Owners EXPO over the past four years. Our thought process is that by attending EXPO, the owners and personnel at those clubs have demonstrated an interest in our industry as a whole and would probably be the most receptive to starting an association in their state, or joining an existing association. In states where there is no association but there is a First Amendment attorney, we have taken the liberty of listing their contact info since they are most usually incommunication with numerous club owners in their state.
   When you read the listings, the comments in those listings are provided by the primary contact, who is either the Executive Director of that state chapter or one of the chapter officers. Also, in the text you will see numerous references to COAST (Club Operators Against Sex Trafficking) meetings, which are training sessions coordinated by ACE National and Department of Homeland Security (ICE) officials with statewide chapters to train club personnel on identifying and stopping sex trafficking.
