Primary Membership

INFiN members are part of the strong and united front of consumer financial services providers from across the country who are working together to protect and advance the interests of their businesses and customers.

Advocacy

As a recognized national trade association, INFiN provides a mechanism for individual members to pool their resources and leverage their relationships to positively educate and influence decision-makers in Congress, the Administration, and the many regulatory agencies that have jurisdiction over consumer financial services. INFiN also engages on behalf of members in states across the country when legislative and regulatory issues are presented at the state and local levels.

This environment requires expert government relations and public relations teams, along with a knowledgeable staff, who are constantly engaged to protect and defend the image and reputation of the industry and to advance members’ interests. INFiN helps members interface with other financial service providers to build partnerships, to explore business opportunities, and to enhance the standing of non-bank financial service providers in the rapidly changing world of financial services.

BSA/AML Compliance

BSA/AML compliance is one of the most important and significant characteristics of the consumer financial services industry. INFiN members receive access to deeply discounted Online Employee Training Programs, featuring Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering courses, progress reporting, and testing systems.

The 2020 INFiN BSA/AML Compliance Toolbox features comprehensive materials that have long been hailed as the “gold standard” by banks, regulators, and even industry competitors! These offerings include:

  • Model Compliance Program Manual;
  • Risk Assessment Matrix;
  • Compliance Program Review Checklist;
  • Employee Compliance Training Manual; and
  • Anti-Money Laundering Compliance Examinations 1 and 2.

Members receive discounted attendance at the INFiN BSA/AML Compliance Certification Program at the MoneyTrends Conference. This session provides in-depth coverage of BSA/AML regulatory updates, money laundering and financial crime scams and case studies, enforcement actions, best practices, and more. Attendees receive a certificate to document to examiners and bankers their completion of this program. Attendees also receive credit for ACAMS continuing education requirements.

Due to COVID-19, we’re disappointed that MoneyTrends 2020 has been cancelled. We look forward to gathering in Washington, D.C. in November 2021.
