Greater Phoenix Chapter


    Welcome to the Greater Phoenix Chapter webpage! Our Chapter formed to provide the anti-money laundering /anti-terrorism financing (collectively AML) community in Arizona with a resource that provides support, guidance, training, and peer interaction for industry professionals.


    The Greater Phoenix Chapter will actively support the goals of the international ACAMS association by being the premier AML organization in Arizona. The Chapter will fulfill this mission by:

    • Providing high-quality meetings, workshops, and networking events where members and non-members can build knowledge, enhance skills, and share experiences and expertise.
    • Achieving recognition as an effective resource by promoting sound AML policies, procedures, effective practices, and international standards to the local community including AML professionals,academic institutions, government agencies, financial institutions, and law enforcement.
    • Building strong relationships with other professional organizations in the greater Phoenix region having similar money laundering prevention interests.
    • Responding to the needs of our members that arise from the diversity of AML responsibilities and the constantly changing money laundering methodologies.


    We look forward to meeting you... Join Today!
