The VBAProtect Conference brings together bankers from security, enterprise risk management, operations and technology. Through a combination of general sessions, concurrent breakout sessions for each functional area and numerous opportunities to network with other bankers from around the state, this two-day conference will keep you abreast of the latest developments and trends within your functional area to help you make a meaningful impact on the organization you serve.
Recent Congressional focus and well-publicized BSA enforcement actions and fines continue to support a climate proving BSA compliance remains of paramount importance to all financial institutions. Treasury continues to rely on financial institutions to serve as the “front-line gatekeepers” for law enforcement efforts to safeguard the U.S. financial system from the abuses of financial crimes, including money laundering and terrorist financing. The federal regulatory agencies continue to rely on financial institutions to take “every reasonable step” to identify, minimize, and manage any risks that illicit financial activity may pose to the individual institution and the industry. Ongoing initiatives by the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN), and continued expansions of the federal examination procedures, reinforce the need to have a strong BSA program at your institution.
FinPro’s Scott Martorana will explore the economic headwinds we are starting to see and how a global and potential U.S. economic slowdown will change what banks have been doing for the last 10 years. Due to the abnormality of this economic recovery, and the drastic change in the banking landscape over the last 10 years, we as an industry need to reconsider how we prepare for a downturn.
Through the use of highly qualified instructors and a challenging
curriculum, the VBA School of Bank Management is designed to
provide a multi-dimensional educational experience in banking.
Upon completion of three one-week summer sessions and eight home
study problems, students will have developed a range of skills
that should both enhance current performance and qualify them as
candidates for advancement.
This conference is designed for emerging banking leaders and members of the Virginia Bankers Association Emerging Bank Leaders (EBL) group. This conference will give Emerging Bank Leaders the opportunity to share ideas and network with peers from across the state. You do not have to be an EBL member to attend.
