CRB Monitor's Steve Kemmerling will present on September 16, 2021 to ACAMS Atlanta Chapter Lunch & Learn at the Ansley Golf Club and will discuss the rapidly changing landscape involving cannabis banking.
The legal status of marijuana has created compliance conflicts for financial institutions both large and small and the in-person event will provide practical guidance on how to adapt to evolving cannabis-related compliance issues facing the AML community today.
Key Points To be Covered
- Defining various type of "cannabis" and "Cannabis-Related Businesses" and summarize each category's legal/regulatory risk and opportunity
- Current and pending federal legislation that could impact the cannabis industry and its access to financial services
- How to more effectively create cannabis policies and procedures to reflect today’s market and regulatory realities, without leaving undue risk or opportunity to chance
