Judy Graham, a program officer with the National Credit Union Administration's Office of Examination and Insurance, will host a presentation on the risks and rewards of providing financial services to money service businesses, and what kind of BSA obligations are present for such services. Graham will also provide an update on the latest BSA issues from the NCUA.
