|2019 BSA/AML/OFAC Compliance Training Program for International Banks|
IIB will once again sponsor a training program on the U.S. anti-money laundering and sanctions program issues that are most relevant to IIB member banks. The program consists of seven separate training sessions scheduled throughout the year at the New York offices of Arnold & Porter (250 West 55th Street). The first session is on April 25th. We are delighted to be working again with Michael Mancusi and Kevin Toomey of Arnold & Porter in producing this program.
Each session will focus on a 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.
