GRCI's 'Networking Events' are a double value event designed to provide a forum for a speaker on an important topical issue, as well as some time to informally revisit and create contacts within your compliance and risk professional network in your local community.

Often our best learning can come from sharing ideas and questions and peer to peer experiences as well as direct access to subject matter experts. This event in particular will introduce members to Perth local AUSTRAC regulatory contacts and their insights and perspective on AML/CTF and other relevant matters.

Please join GRCI members and guests at this lunchtime event to hear from Kate Gunning - Senior Intelligence Analyst - AUSTRAC and Kirsty Baldassar - Regional Intelligence Manager WA - AUSTRAC about the recent and upcoming changes to the AML/CTF Act and AUSTRAC.

Perth members will shortly receive an email inviting them to send through questions on notice to GRCI MD, Naomi Burley, to be forwarded on to the AUSTRAC presenters. We'd love to see you at this event and to catch up with GRCI's Director based in Perth, Graeme Douglas. To attend, please register below and we will confirm the venue on the website and directly with attendees shortly.
