It is a great way to be sure to be working smart and efficiently for members and credit unions.

Roundtable Discussion | Lessons Learned: Things Credit Unions Discovered They Could and Could Not Do

Speaker: Kevin Smith

Credit unions found the need to pivot in 2020/2021 and discovered just what they are capable of, while also learning from a few mistakes along the way. As an industry often known for embracing change slowly, credit unions were forced to do some things very quickly, even with things that boards may have pushed backed on or held out about for years! Come with an open mind to discover some surprises and be ready to discuss success stories and lessons learned.

Bank Secrecy Act for Directors

Speaker: Kela Windgard

Anti-money laundering compliance has remained a primary focus for regulators and prosecutors for several years. This is evidenced by the increase in criminal and regulatory penalties imposed against financial institutions for failures relating to their Bank Secrecy Act and anti-money laundering (BSA/AML) compliance programs.

Due to the scrutiny in this area, it is critical that credit unions make AML compliance a top priority, and since the board is primarily responsible for ensuring a comprehensive and effective BSA/AML compliance program, it is critical that there is a solid understanding of how its oversight framework must be reasonably designed to ensure compliance.
