Texas league develops BSA DVD series
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (9/11/08)--The Texas Credit Union League has developed a new Bank Secrecy Act Compliance DVD series aimed at helping credit unions with compliance. “Training is an area of particular importance to our credit unions, and specifically, compliance training,” said Dick Ensweiler, league president/CEO. The DVD, “Probing the Particulars,” is a follow-up to the overview and introductory information provided in the league’s 2006 Bank Secrecy Act Compliance DVD. It takes an in-depth look at what is required in the Currency Transactions Reports and Suspicious Activity Reports (LoneStar Leaguer Sept. 9). The video includes explanations, illustrations for filling out forms, training for boards of directors, risk assessment, member due diligence and Office of Foreign Assets Control requirements, the league said. “We had a great deal of interest in our initial training DVD, and as an overview, it was effective for the majority of staff at credit unions,” said Suzanne Yashewski, league vice president of regulatory and compliance. “But it didn’t detail the day-to-day workings with BSA. Now this two-disc training covers all the bases--a general overview and form-by-form training.”
