The CUNA Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Conference, presented in conjunction with the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors, will be Nov. 13-16 in San Antonio.
“When credit unions fail to stay current with BSA and other anti-money laundering (AML) laws, it can result in serious financial penalties and, worse, failure to detect and stop financial crime,” said Tracy Blaske, CUNA director of compliance education. “This conference is a valuable opportunity for credit union professionals to catch up on the latest amendments to the law itself, learn about new developments in financial crime and acquire strategies for detection, protection, and compliance.”
The conference features four days of expert-led sessions on payments systems, the supervisory trail, beneficial owners, shell banks, and due diligence requirements. Representatives from major regulatory bodies will also join the conference to provide updates and meet with attendees. Attendees will be able to earn or recertify their Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Specialist designation.
“I’ve been involved in the conference and certification for many years now and I always look to them for their expertise and to share what’s happening in the BSA world,” said Tom Crapo, senior vice president, Vermont FCU, Burlington, Vt.
