JVC to Host AML Seminar during JA Show

Jewelers Vigilance Committee and the Jewelers Board of Trade are presenting ”Industry/Government Relations – Your Anti-Money Laundering Obligations,” a new anti-money laundering seminar to inform jewelers about what they can expect now that the Internal Revenue Service has a system in place to review jewelry businesses’ AML programs to comply with the USA PATRIOT Act.

JVC/JBT will present the seminar at the JA/NY Show, July 30, 8:30 – 10 a.m., at the Jacob Javits meeting room 1E04. Seminar is free to attend. Light breakfast will be available. Registration is not required; space is limited.

Kim Buggs, compliance policy program Analyst, IRS; Gary Murray, New York High Risk Money Laundering and Related Financial Crimes Areas; and Dione Kenyon, president, Jewelers Board of Trade.
