As the senior compliance officer for your bank, you need to stay up-to-date on all compliance issues affecting financial institutions. Your job requires many skills, much experience, and a lot of research and hard work—and no one knows that better than other people in your position. The 2021-2022 Senior Compliance Officer Forums provide an opportunity to benefit from the skills, experience, expertise, and perspective of your peers.

Facilitated by Connie Edwards, CRCM, shareholder, Saltmarsh Cleaveland & Gund, these forums will bring together senior compliance officers in a small-group setting to exchange ideas freely, dissect challenges openly, and discuss solutions that can improve the performance of your bank in the area of compliance.

These meetings are held on a quarterly basis (four times per year) at the TBA Barrett Training Center in Nashville.

The cost of membership in the annual forums is $1,200 and includes all four 2021-2022 sessions.
