    Representatives of the following types of organisation are eligible for these preferential rates:

     

    • Government and public organisations (at federal, regional and local levels) including central banks, state regulators, FIUs, law enforcement and military
       
    •  International bodies e.g. Europol, European Commission, FATF, MONEYVAL
       
    • NGOs and Arms Length Bodies
       
    • Publicly funded academic institutions – both academic staff and students
       
    • Think tanks
       
    • 3rd Sector, not-for-profit, registered charities


    Public Sector attendees are eligible for a reduced price.
    If attendees register at the public sector rate and are not eligible for preferential rates we will invoice the difference.

    Substitution and Cancellation

    Cancellations received up to Friday, January 21, 2022 will receive a full refund minus a US$250 administration fee. Cancellations received Saturday, January 22, 2022 – Monday, February 21, 2022 will be issued a credit voucher to be used towards next year’s conference. Cancellations received on or after February 22, 2022 will not be refunded.

    Substitutions of registered attendees must be submitted in writing to info@acams.org by 12:00 PM (EDT) on Friday March 18, 2022. Please note that if the transfer is made from an ACAMS member to a non-ACAMS member, you will be charged the difference in cost. If you neither attend the conference nor designate a substitute prior to the event, you are still responsible for the full registration fee. Requests submitted after the eligible time-frame will not be considered.

    If for any reason ACAMS cancels or reschedules the conference, we do not accept responsibility for airfare, hotel or other costs incurred by registrants.

    Covid-19 Policy: pass holders will only be entitled to a refund of your conference pass ifyou are unable to attend the in-person event in Hollywood because you have been diagnosed with Covid-19 or if government-issued travel restrictions are in place during the event dates. If you are unable to attend because of the Covid-19 illness, you will be asked to provide proof of a positive diagnosis. If you have been potentially exposed to someone who is positive for COVID-19, you can request to transfer your pass to virtual or a future in-person event.

Due to new limited seating your conference pass may be subject to change to your choice of a virtual pass or the next in-person event. Seats will be allocated based on time of purchase. If you choose to transfer to virtual, the difference in pricing (if applicable) could be used as a credit towards a future ACAMS purchase.

    In-person attendance

    Health and Safety Policy

    ACAMS considers the health and safety of all those on-site at the 2022 ACAMS Hollywood 26thAnnual Moneylaundering.com Conference as our priority.

    ACAMS is offering in-person attendance at the 2022 ACAMS Hollywood Conference in Hollywood, Florida in compliance with local government orders permitting such gatherings at this time. At this time ACAMS is following current CDC guidelines and will require masks be worn indoors during the conference, regardless of vaccination status. Masks will be available upon request for anyone in need of one. All attendees and staff are expected to fully comply with applicable safety precautions, such as staying home if exhibiting signs of illness. To make your experience safer and more comfortable sanitization stations will be available in the lobby, elevator banks, and throughout the meeting space.

    At this time, Broward County does not have any restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings, and other safety protocols. However, in the event that hospitalization rates rise, Broward County could re-instate capacity limits, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at the 2022 ACAMS Hollywood Conference. If this were to occur, you would be notified as to the status of your registration. If state or local capacity restrictions require ACAMS to reduce the number of attendees at the 2022 ACAMS Hollywood Conference, and you are unable to attend the conference in person, you will be provided alternatives, such as the ability to attend virtually or to transfer your pass to the next in-person event. Refunds will not be available.

    If you subsequently test positive for COVID-19, we ask that you contact Judy Jurado (JJurado@acams.org). They will provide your information to the local health department to support any contact tracing efforts. In accordance with local health department requirements, ACAMS will comply with any contact tracing and/or notification protocols if we are notified that any attendee has tested positive for COVID-19.
