South Africa Chapter


Upcoming South Africa Chapter learning events will be announced soon.

Welcome! The ACAMS South Africa Chapter was launched in November 2010 and over the past four years has held a number of membership events focusing on a range of anti-money laundering, counter financing of terrorism and economic financial sanctions topical issues. Our membership consists of approximately 140 professionals within the public and private sectors who represent both the financial services and designated non-financial service industries. The past and current Board members have been made up of persons representing banking, consulting, casino, regulatory and money services and we hope to expand the Board to be fully representative of other impacted areas and industries.

The mission of the ACAMS South Africa Chapter is to support the International ACAMS Mission, advance the knowledge of local AML/CFT specialists, and provide a vehicle through which members can network, and improve their level of understanding in this rapidly changing industry.

The elected Board has embarked on a more consultative approach with its members and has been working closely with ACAMS USA on its ongoing activities. The Board strongly supports a drive to have as many of our members qualify as Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialists – a globally recognised designation. In order to qualify to take the examination and for purposes of recertification, members are required to earn a minimum number of CAMS points. These points can be accrued by attending Chapter events. We look forward to welcoming you at our learnership and networking events in 2015.
