Madison, WI (May 31, 2012) – School information and registration is now available for the upcoming CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference, taking place December 2-5 in Dallas, Texas. For more information and to register, visit

In partnership with NASCUS, the CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference brings together Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) compliance officers, state and federal examiners, industry experts and regulators for discussion, networking and education on BSA compliance issues. This annual conference covers all of the BSA statutory and regulatory training requirements that compliance professionals need to comprehend and comply with the complex federal BSA law.

Attendees get updates from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) agencies. This year’s conference will cover today’s pressing BSA issues, including:

  • Skip tracing – A tool for your BSA compliance arsenal
  • BSA implications of emerging payment systems
  • Selecting AML automation tools
  • BSA & Business Accounts
  • And more

“We are very excited to offer sessions on Skip Tracing and other fresh topics at this year’s CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference,” said Tracy Blaske, Manager of Compliance at CUNA. “We know credit union professionals need real-world compliance applications they can use when they get back to their offices. Strengthening those compliance efforts means less risk for the credit union and more strength for the credit union movement.”

Established in 1970, the BSA was enacted to help in the investigations of money laundering, tax evasion and other criminal activity. Today, compliance with the BSA helps to build an important weapon against the war on terrorism. However, new technology brings increased risk and complexity to your compliance efforts.

At this year’s conference, credit union professionals will have the opportunity to earn their CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Specialist (BSACS) designation by enrolling in BSA 101 and successfully completing the proctored exams. BSACS recertification is also available.

CUNA Bank Secrecy Act eSchool also begins August 23 – October 24. For more information, visit
