Get Your Team Involved in BSA and OFAC Training
Monday, November 27, 2017 6:35 AM

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.

Join us Jan. 17, 2018 for the BSA and OFAC Training, where you and your staff will learn about BSA/OFAC compliance in a live teleconference with industry expert Steve Gibbs, CUCE, BSACS. This is a great opportunity for a group training of your compliance team.

All of the basic information pertaining to BSA and OFAC will be covered. Time will be allowed at the end of the teleconference for a question and answer session. The League will issue a certificate of attendance listing those from your credit union who attend the teleconference training session to retain in your files for documentation.

Updated 2018 information for the teleconference will include:

  • Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Compliance Requirements and Hot Spots
  • Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) Compliance Requirements
  • Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Issues
  • Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List)
  • Member Identification Program (MIP / CIP)
  • Currency Transaction Report (CTR) Requirements
  • Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) Requirements

Registration fee per telephone call-in line includes the live teleconference call-in and one free archive call-in of the recorded session. The recorded session will be archived for 30 days from the original date. Learn more here.
