BSA officers have many tasks, especially regarding compliance.

Although the board of directors has ultimate authority, they rely upon the BSA officer and management to keep them informed and raise any red flags. BSA officers have the hefty responsibility of reporting to the board – accurately and honestly. Are your reports up to snuff?
  • Understand directors’ BSA responsibilities
  • Develop a comprehensive, ongoing BSA training program for the board
  • Explain your institution’s existing BSA/AML risks and the impact of pending BSA regulation changes
  • Use provided templates and information to create detailed board reports
  • Distinguish the key details examiners will be looking for in your board reporting


Ultimate responsibility for your BSA program rests with the board. Since directors aren’t there to oversee the day-to-day operations, they must rely on the information provided by the BSA officer and management to make the strategic, risk-based decisions needed to maintain compliance and avoid costly incidents of fraud. What’s more, recent BSA enforcement actions have cited lack of board and management oversight as a significant violation.

BSA officer communication with the board starts with effective initial and ongoing training and continues with periodic reporting to keep directors informed on your BSA program and the ever-changing regulatory environment. This session will address appropriate training content, as well as the frequency and type of reporting most needed by the board. It will highlight the details that directors need most to support their decision-making and enhance their understanding of your institution’s BSA/AML risks. Learn current BSA hot buttons your board needs to understand to ensure your institution has implemented appropriate controls and dedicated resources to the areas of highest risk.


This informative session is designed for BSA/AML officers, compliance officers, and senior management.
