MADISON, WI (July 28, 2014) — CUNA is proud to announce that it has been invited by the Michigan Department of Financial Institutions to bring CUNA Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) training and designation content, in partnership with NASCUS, to 38 state examiners at a Department of Insurance and Financial Services (DIFS) annual training event. Michigan credit unions are also invited to participate in this valuable certification opportunity, October 8-9, 2014 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
“It’s truly an honor to have been invited to bring this popular training program to the compliance experts who safeguard the Michigan credit union system year-round,” said Tracy Blaske, Director of Compliance Education, CUNA. “We’re excited to work with the 38 state examiners who will be in attendance and to shed some new light on the Bank Secrecy Act and its regulatory nuances.”
In partnership with NASCUS, CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Conference brings together BSA compliance officers, state and federal examiners, industry experts and regulators to put everyone involved on the same page. Attendees receive pertinent updates from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) agencies – leaving with the statutory and regulatory training knowledge to comprehend and comply with the complex federal BSA law.
Upon completing CUNA’s BSA designation training, the state examiners and others in attendance will receive the CUNA Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Specialist (BSACS) designation, recognizing them for their expertise in the field and their dedication to advancing credit union compliance.
