Thursday, May 21, 2020 12 PM ET | 60 Minutes
Every month we host an interactive, “office hours” style webinar during which we answer all questions related to cannabis banking.
Paul Dunford, Green Check Co-Founder and Director of Program Development, will be sitting down with Amy Bean, CAMS, Financial Crimes Manager at Crowe LLP. Amy is a subject-matter expert in cannabis banking and will be sharing her experience with assisting financial institutions in understanding control environments, areas of risk, and aiding in the development of CRB policies and procedures.
During the first half of the session they’ll discuss the regulatory landscape, operational insights and best practices for developing a cannabis banking program. For the second half of the session Paul and Amy will be taking questions from the audience, so we invite you to join the discussion!
