About this Event

The West Coast Anti-Money Laundering Forum (WCAML) is a yearly conference that fosters a confidential and cooperative exchange of knowledge and ideas in the fight against money laundering, terrorist financing, and other financial crimes.

The West Coast Anti-Money Laundering Forum is attended by financial compliance professionals, federal and state regulators, law enforcement officers, and industry consultants.

The conference is planned and executed by a group of volunteers from a cross section of the financial industry and law enforcement. This group plans an agenda that covers current regulatory action and other emerging topics. They try to select a mix that appeals to the needs of both the financial industry and law enforcement. Among the most popular sessions are those where law enforcement representatives share stories of actual cases that resulted from SARs. The press is not invited to this conference so speakers and attendees can be candid in their remarks without fear of repercussion. Attendance is limited creating a relaxed and more intimate environment with lots of opportunity for networking. Because this conference is organized by volunteers and is not a profitable enterprise, attendance fees are always reasonable.
