Quarterly compliance forum

The Quarterly Compliance Forum is a Zoom series that includes topics of discussion that center around current compliance and legal issues that Kansas banks are facing, in addition to repetitive issues that have been spotted during audits.  The forums are led by Neal Barclay, CRCM, AMLP and Jeff Narron, CRCM, CCBCO, AAP, and occasionally feature a guest speaker from the KBCS team.  Sessions usually last 45-60 minutes and are recorded and distributed for your convenience.

This series is included in the annual KBCS membership fee.  However, KBA members may sign up for all four 2021 Quarterly Compliance Forum sessions at a price of only $250*.
