MADISON, Wis. (7/28/14)--The Credit Union National Association has been invited by the Michigan Department of Financial Institutions to provide CUNA Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) training to 38 state examiners during a Department of Insurance and Financial Services training event later this year.
The training, offered in partnership with the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors, is scheduled for Oct. 8-9 in Ann Arbor, Mich. Michigan credit unions are invited to participate in the certification opportunity as well.
Tracy Blaske, CUNA director of compliance education, said that it's an honor to bring the training program to the compliance experts "who safeguard the Michigan credit union system year-round."
Examiners who complete CUNA's BSA designation training will receive the CUNA BSA Compliance Specialist (BSACS) designation, which recognizes them for their expertise in the field and for their dedication to the advancement of credit union compliance.
CUNA also will host the Bank Secrecy Act Conference later in the month, from Oct. 26-29, in Las Vegas.
The conference brings together BSA compliance officers, state and federal examiners, industry experts and regulators, and provides attendees with updates from the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, the National Credit Union Administration and agencies from the Office of Foreign Assets Control.
Those in attendance will learn the statutory and regulatory training knowledge needed to comprehend and comply with the complex federal BSA law.
