Thursday, June 23 to Friday, June 24, 2011

Mandarin Oriental, Washington, DC, United States

The prepaid card industry is facing unprecedented legal and regulatory challenges at both the state and federal levels.  In response to the CARD Act, the Fed has issued sweeping new rules that impact gift cards.  Meanwhile, FinCEN has released new regulations addressing Money Services Businesses and the prepaid industry.  And the CFPB as well as other emerging regulatory initiatives are likely to have major consequences for the prepaid card market for years to come.  At the state level, the continued evolution of money transmitter statutes requires that market participants keep pace or risk non-compliance.  Add to these concerns the uncertain status of federal preemption, the continuing difficulties associated with AML compliance, and the increasing challenges of fraud deterrence and it becomes clear that it is more important than ever to ensure that you are in compliance with the myriad state and federal regulations and emerging legislation that impact the prepaid industry.

Now in its fourth year, American Conference Institute's Annual Forum on Prepaid Card Compliance is the premier legal and compliance event for the prepaid card industry.  Our 2011 event will bring together an unparalleled faculty of regulatory and enforcement officials, compliance experts from industry leaders, and outside counsel specializing in prepaid card regulatory compliance who will provide you with best practices and targeted guidance for:
