The IIB this year will again sponsor a training program on the U.S. anti-money laundering and sanctions program issues that are most relevant to IIB member banks. As discussed in the attached memorandum (see the link below), the program consists of seven separate training sessions scheduled throughout the year at the New York offices of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP (250 West 55th Street). The first session is on April 28th at 9:00 a.m. We are delighted to be working again with Michael Mancusi, Christopher Allen and Kevin Toomey of Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP in producing the program.
Each session will focus on a particular topic targeted at various aspects of banks’ operations (customer relationship personnel, BSA officers, legal, compliance, audit, and operations staff). This focus on training and the opportunity to obtain an in depth understanding of the practical implications of BSA/AML/OFAC requirements distinguishes the program from the IIB’s Annual Anti-Money Laundering Seminar, which focuses instead on major policy issues and initiatives in this area.
We anticipate that participants will be eligible for continuing education credit for each hour of training received that may be used to meet the Association of Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists ("ACAMS") certification and recertification requirements and, for attorneys licensed in New York, New York continuing legal education (NY CLE) requirements for newly admitted and experienced attorneys.
The registration fee for each session is $395 per person ($345 per person for 3 or more registrations for each session). As an alternative, you may reserve a place at each of the training sessions, which may be attended by whomever at your bank you choose (the same person need not attend all sessions) for an all-in registration fee of $1,800 per person ($1,500 per person for 3 or more such registrations from the same institution).
We encourage all member institutions to take advantage of this program in order to help meet their training requirements under the Bank Secrecy Act. For those wishing to attend the first training session on April 28th, please complete the registration form and return it to the attention of Andy Lebron (email@example.com) at the IIB at your earliest convenience, but no later than April 24th.
