Compliance with the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) remains an important issue with regard to examinations and credit union liability.  A substandard BSA / OFAC compliance program may expose your credit union to unwanted regulatory scrutiny and extensive penalties.  You and your staff will be able to learn about BSA / OFAC compliance in a live teleconference with Steve Gibbs, CUCE, BSACS.
