The Broadleaf Group Banking Division Forms BSA/AML Roundtable

The Broadleaf Group Banking Division plans the first quarterly Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-money Laundering (BSA/AML) Roundtable to address compliance challenges and solutions. It will take place on Tuesday, February 3rd, at the Richard Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, CA.

For banking professionals looking for guidance from expert consultants and peers, this is a valuable opportunity to join together to raise issues and collaborate on best practices. BSA/AML expert, Delayne Townzen, will lead this roundtable discussion. Townzen, a former BSA Officer, has over 36 years of banking experience and a deep understanding of the compliance process. She’s reviewed and revised BSA programs, automated AML monitoring and alerts, performed self-assessments based on FFIEC manual, trained personnel and participated in a panel of experts at the California Bankers Association Annual BSA Conference.

“We’ve serviced over 200 banks in the last 25 years and we’re frequently asked about compliance issues,” said Hani Ascha, Director of the Banking Division. “BSA/AML is especially challenging for bankers who try to effectively achieve and document CDD and EDD efforts. In 2015, CDD/EDD efforts will continue to be closely scrutinized by regulators. Banks need to ensure this data is properly documented. We had an overwhelmingly positive response when we gauged interest in a roundtable that brings banking professionals and expert consultants together to address these concerns, so we decided to sponsor this event.”

The first 2.5-hour BSA/AML Roundtable begins at 11:00 AM and will feature time for introductions, followed by an open forum and advice from experienced consultants. It will wrap up with a Q&A session to address specific situations. A complimentary lunch will be provided.

Those unable to attend the event are invited to join the BSA/AML Roundtable Networking Group on LinkedIn. This group serves as an online gathering place for banking professionals to discuss a variety of topics including:

BSA/Officers General Role and Responsibilities
Employee Training
Current Regulatory Challenges
Enhancing the Risk Assessment
Enhancing Risk-Based Approaches to AML
