Description: During this one-hour webinar, we will outline the guidelines and requirements when it comes to providing banking services to hemp-related customers.  We will address guidance issued by FinCEN, the Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) requirements, the Farm Bill and other guidance and updates which effect the hemp industry. In an effort to enhance the availability of financial services, while still complying with federal law and regulatory requirements, we will break down the guidance to provide financial institutions with a clearer understanding of what should be included in the due diligence process for hemp-related businesses as well as the importance of a strong written program which addresses these businesses.
