About Us

Background

The Anti-Money Laundering Association (AMLA) is a non-profit membership-based organization that began in 2007 with the intent to serve and equip the financial services professional and industry with expert training and education on the Bank Secrecy Act and related laws and regulations.

The AMLA has purposed to raise a standard of global awareness concerning the consequences of money laundering, terrorist financing, human trafficking and other crimes intended to corrode and corrupt our financial systems and societies as a whole.

The AMLA aids in the global fight against financial crimes through our educational training programs and partnerships.

The AMLA equips the next generation of financial “gatekeepers” and “watchers” through our Institute of Professional Development internship program and various courses.

The AMLA does not work alone. We have joined in alliances and partnerships with local, state, federal, and international agencies; including law enforcement, government, academia, non-governmental organizations, faith-based, social, community groups and others as needed.

We promote, cultivate, and teach a compliance culture of ethics, moral values, good character, and integrity within the financial services industry.

We promote compliance and adherence to the Bank Secrecy Act and Anti-Money Laundering laws and related regulations affecting the financial services industry.

The AMLA gives back to our local communities and society as a whole by providing community awareness events and education to help others and by supporting other like-minded organizations.
