NCUA hosting Bank Secrecy Act webinar

ALEXANDRIA, VA (February 27, 2014) – Credit union managers and compliance staff will be able to learn more about Bank Secrecy Act compliance on a free webinar, “BSA-MSB Training: What You Need to Know,” hosted by the National Credit Union Administration on Wednesday, March 19, 2014, at 2 p.m. Eastern.

The importance of Bank Secrecy Act compliance cannot be overstated. An insufficient BSA compliance program may expose a credit union to reputation risk, such as manipulation by unscrupulous money launderers, undermine the integrity of the financial system or even threaten national security.

Diane Rector, Training Manager and Economic Development Specialist Supervisor with NCUA’s Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives, will host Jane Pannier, Esq., Senior Vice President and In-House Counsel for Neighbor Bench, LLC, and Judy Graham, Program Officer with NCUA’s Office of Examination and Insurance. The panel will cover key areas of concern for a well-developed BSA program, including:

•Critical elements of a BSA program
•Money Service Businesses
•Common BSA violations
•Reporting requirements

A certificate of training will be given to attendees who successfully complete the test offered at the end of the webinar. This webinar will be archived and closed-captioned approximately two to three weeks following the live event at
