Webinar: The Changing Face of BSA Administration: What BSA Officers & Management Must Know
Thursday, December 12, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Normal businesses? No problem. But how do you decide whether to serve potential clients that are somewhat “outside the lines”?

You discover a long-time accountholder has changed their business model, and suddenly become a higher BSA risk. You are approached by a new entity whose product mix will potentially impact your BSA operation, but also appears to be someone you should consider as a new accountholder. These scenarios arise more often every day.

It is easy to serve a “normal” business. But what do you do when the potential client is somewhat “outside the lines”? What should be considered within your financial institution? What restrictions/conditions should be placed on such accountholders? Which products will be offered (or not) to these entities? This webinar will address the thought and decision-making processes that BSA staff and management must use to deal with more unique business types.


  • The decision-making process for more unique businesses
  • The priority realignment that management and BSA officers must accept
  • Marijuana businesses and MRBs (or CRBs)
  • CBD oil
  • MSBs
  • Other higher-risk businesses
  • The manual will include aids to assist management and the BSA department in making decisions about whether and when to serve these higher-risk businesses.
  • Employee training log
  • Interactive quiz


This informative session is directed to management, BSA officers, BSA department staff, and lenders.
