Welcome to the Virginia ACAMS Chapter website! The Chapter seeks to provide education and networking opportunities towards advancing the knowledge and skills of those involved in the identification, detection and prevention of money laundering. Through hosting events featuring speakers from various industry segments and the Government, we plan to be a resource for financial institutions and related businesses, law enforcement, and the academic community. Additionally, the Virginia Chapter will continually seek out opportunities to help distinguish CAMS members as the preferred subject matter experts in the field of anti-money laundering compliance.
Congratulations to our Board Member Elaine Yancey on being featured in the ACAMS Today article “Women in AML”.
Elaine Yancey, a Managing Examiner at the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond is featured in an article in the March-May issue of ACAMS today. The article is a showcase to influential women in the AML field including those with years of experience and newcomers who are also leaving their stamp on the industry. When ACAMS Today asked veterans in the field what their proudest AML career moment was, Elaine’s response highlighted another valuable organization in the Richmond area with which she has shared her knowledge and expertise:
“The date was March 19, 2013, and the location was sunny Hollywood, Florida, the venue for the 18th Annual ACAMS International AML and Financial Crimes Conference. This was the day that ACAMS Executive Vice President John J. Byrne publicly recognized the efforts of the BSA Coalition by giving it the ACAMS Private-Public Sector Service Award. As a regulatory advisor to this unique organization, a group of AML professionals who discuss and resolve BSA/AML issues, I have learned so much. I am honored to be among women recognized in the AML field.”

As the BSA Coalition’s Regulatory Advisor Elaine has worked in partnership with financial institutions, regulators, and law enforcement to provide the necessary tools to bankers to establish effective BSA/AML Programs. Elaine’s contributions to both ACAMS and the Coalition have been significant and we are pleased to have her as a member of our Board.
