In this webinar, Kevin Gulledge will discuss the potential risk and value to taking on CRBs. You’ll leave this session with insight on how to manage regulatory compliance and maintain a risk-based program, should your institution decide to bank CRBs. 

Join this session to learn:

  • Key terms and definitions about cannabis-related businesses
  • Latest updates on legalization efforts and regulatory impacts, including the SAFE Banking Act 
  • Best practices for banking CRBs and answers to common questions about cannabis banking 
  • What to include in your policy if you decide to bank or not bank CRBs 

This session is eligible for 1.25 credits CAFP, CERP, CRCM
