Casino Essentials hosts 11th annual AML Conference

13 June 2018

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Casino Essentials announced several key government speakers last week, including the Director of FinCEN, Kenneth Blanco who will kick off the conference with a keynote speech on the first day of the three-day event. The Director's keynote will be followed by additional keynotes, panels and presentations from FinCEN's Enforcement Division, the Deputy Chief of IRS Criminal Investigations and the Department of Justice's, Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section.

The Bank Secrecy Act or BSA requires financial institutions including casinos in the United States to assist government agencies to detect and prevent money laundering.

In 2017, Casino Essentials' National AML conference attracted high profile speakers from FinCEN, IRS and DOJ. More than 500 gaming professionals, regulators and attorneys attended the annual conference in Las Vegas, developed by Casino Essentials in partnership with the Dowling Advisory Group (DAG).

"Attendees will hear from the most experienced legal and regulatory experts in the gaming industry" said Jim Dowling, the Managing Director of The Dowling Advisory Group (DAG). "Our extensive experience with AML compliance allows us to connect casino professionals with federal regulators to address the most challenging issues in the gaming industry."

Casino Essentials continues to show a strong commitment to the gaming industry's educational needs by providing regional and national AML conferences with relevant content and exceptional government and industry speakers. "Our conference program provides a unique environment where casinos can openly discuss their compliance challenges as a community," said Mindy Letourneau, Managing Director, Casino Essentials. "Here participants interact directly with government regulators and federal law enforcement agencies to find solutions that can benefit the industry."
