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 international banks. The program is open to member banks only and consists of seven separate training sessions scheduled throughout the year at the New York offices of Arnold & Porter LLP (399 Park Avenue (at 53rd Street). The first session is on April 21st at 9:00 a.m. 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). We are delighted to be working again with Michael Mancusi and Christopher Allen of Arnold & Porter LLP in producing the program.
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).
Links to the schedule and registration form are provided below. We encourage all member banks to take advantage of this program in order to help meet their training requirements under the Bank Secrecy Act. ACAMS has approved the program for continuing education credit. In addition, New York continuing legal education credit will be available for attendance at the individual sessions by newly admitted and experienced attorneys.
For those wishing to attend the first training session on April 21st, 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 18th.
Session Dates: April 21st, May 26th, June 23rd, September 22nd, October 20th, November 17th, December 15th
