January 27, 2020
Read Time: 0 min

A quick search for BSA/AML conferences returns thousands of results – 128,000 to be exact. With budgets expected to stretch further and further every year, how do you know which one is right for you?

Abrigo’s ThinkBIG: Fighting Financial Crime conference is a two-and-a-half-day event focused on the Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) and anti-money laundering (AML) hot topics with an extra focus on catching and stopping fraudulent activity. The 16th annual conference, formally known as BAM+ User Group (BUG), will feature product and industry experts covering BSA/AML professionals’ top concerns, including cannabis-related banking and domestic terrorism, financial crime updates including OFAC sanctions and SAR writing, and the latest BAM+ product tips and tricks.

In case you still aren’t convinced that you need to attend ThinkBIG: Fighting Financial Crime, here are five reasons to register:

1. Network with other BSA/AML and fraud professionals in a relaxed setting.

Attending the sessions at conferences is great to glean industry knowledge, but you can also learn a lot from your peers between sessions. The agenda at ThinkBIG: Fighting Financial Crime accounts for multiple networking breaks so you can refill your coffee cup while talking shop with your peers. You will also be invited to the Big Banker Night and Networking Happy Hour following the sessions on Monday and Tuesday. Those are great times to get to talk to other BSA/AML officers and fraud professionals to hear how they handle different situations at their institution in a relaxed atmosphere, away from the office.

2. Learn about industry hot topics from the people who live it every day.

We’ve sourced the brightest minds on a variety of BSA/AML and fraud topics to speak about the very issues you see at your institution every day. From cannabis banking to elder financial exploitation to SAR writing, these sessions are guaranteed to leave you with actionable items you can immediately implement at your institution.  

3. Earn CE credits – approximately 10 credits for the conference!

Keeping up with your BSA/AML certifications is an important part of your job, but it can feel overwhelming with the amount of continuing education credits you need to earn. We submit all of our sessions for CE credits so that you can earn those much-needed hours in a fun, engaging setting. Last year, attendees earned over 10 hours of credits! (Our free thought leadership webinars are another great way to earn CE credits throughout the year.)
