WASHINGTON (8/22/08)—Registration is open of the Credit Union National Association’s (CUNA’s) next four-day Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) conference, to be held Oct. 19-22 in Atlanta. New topics include who is responsible for what under BSA in shared branching arrangements, and the latest on automated clearinghouse and wire issues. Also, conference attendees will get an in-depth, hands-on look at developing an institution-wide BSA risk assessment for their credit union, as well as help to understand how BSA due diligence before a merger can save a credit union from other pitfalls. This conference will feature informative discussions on practical, operational compliance issues; open forums for question and answer; big picture compliance trends; overviews of common mistakes; and networking opportunities. As in its prior BSA conferences, CUNA will offer Bank Secrecy Act Compliance Specialist Certification as an optional feature. The conference, presented in partnership with the National Association of State Bank Supervisors, will be held at the The Westin Buckhead Atlanta.
