Today’s Issues, Tomorrow’s Answers

#ACAMSVegas Conference is the most trusted meeting place for the AML/CTF/financial crime community and features the largest gathering of ACAMS members, CAMS-certified professionals and government officials. For 15 years now, the connections made at this conference have been crucial for bridging the communication gap between the private and public sectors, bringing awareness to predicate crimes related to money laundering – including terrorist financing, human trafficking and tax evasion – and for establishing reliable alliances and resources to last your entire career.

After three days of practical training sessions, deep dives into case studies, and executive-level roundtable discussions, you’ll walk away inspired and reenergized to take on the challenges of detecting and preventing financial crime.

* Seventeen (17) continuing educational CAMS credit can be earned after the completion of the conference. Plus, earn up to eight (8) additional CAMS credits for attending pre-conference training
