Money Laundering Issues Group

Any ABA member with an interest in money laundering issues may be a member of ABA's Money Laundering Issues Group (MLIG). Calls for the community bank group are held on the third Tuesdays of the month at 1:30 pm ET. Calls for the large bank group are now held on the third Thursdays of the month at 1:30 pm ET.  While the discussions use common agendas each month, there are two groups to facilitate discussion and to give ample time to focus on specific issues that may interest one group more than another.

Meeting agendas are suggested by members and staff from ABA's Center for Regulatory Compliance. The call agenda and a reminder are sent shortly before each call and recommendations from ABA members for agenda items are strongly encouraged. The calls are intended to enable compliance professionals to learn about new regulatory initiatives, to share common AML/CFT concerns, and to seek input from their peers on compliance challenges with anti-money laundering, terrorist financing and sanctions programs. Participation on the monthly MLIG calls also provides interested members with opportunities to support comment letter preparation and other advocacy efforts or identify issues to be raised to the attention of regulatory authorities.

To be an active member of the MLIG, please e-mail your interest to Grace Marasigan and include which group you would like to join (community bank or large bank). To suggest an agenda item, please email Rob Rowe

  • Next MLIG Community Bank Call: October 15, 1:30 pm ET
  • Next MLIG Large Bank Call: October 17, 1:30 pm ET

ABA Antitrust Policy Reminder:

It is the policy of the American Bankers Association to comply fully with all antitrust laws. Certain discussions should be considered off-limits, including those that go to pricing or controlling markets. Care should be exercised by both ABA staff and bankers, as antitrust liability is often established through circumstantial evidence. Please be conscious of the ABA antitrust policy and assist us in maintaining good corporate governance practices.
