CUNA BSA Conference earns ACAMS accreditation

November 6, 2015

MADISON, Wis. (11/6/15)--CUNA has announced that the CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference, in partnership with the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS), has been officially accredited by the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists (ACAMS).

Those who attend the conference will now earn credits towards ACAMS’ Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) designation.

“This accreditation is validation of our efforts to provide comprehensive anti-money laundering (AML) education to credit unions,” said Tracy Blaske, CUNA instructional design manager of compliance. “We thank ACAMS for this honor and will continue to refine and enhance the CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference in the years to come.”

Starting with this year’s CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference--Nov. 15-18 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.--attendees will receive 20 credits towards the CAMS designation. CAMS is widely considered the gold standard of AML certifications and is recognized by private institutions, governments and law enforcement.

The conference includes four days of sessions containing up-to-date information on Bank Secrecy Act compliance. Attendees are joined by representatives from major government agencies as well as state examiners and attorneys. Registration is still available at events.cuna.org/bsa.
