Robyn C. Mitchell, Former Bank of America’s Compliance Executive, Former Trial Attorney with the US Dept. of Justice Named Guest Panelist at GKC’s AML Teleconference

New York, NY, May 31, 2006 --( The Global Knowledge Congress, the leading producer of regulatory focused teleconferences has announced today that Robyn C. Mitchell, Former Bank of America’s Compliance Executive and former Trial Attorney with The US Department Justice, Founder of Compliance Builders, Inc., will be the guest panelist at the upcoming The Patriot Act and Anti-Money Laundering Teleconference for Tuesday, June 20, 2006 at 11:00 AM (EDT).

The Patriot Act was formed in response to the terrorist attacks against the U.S. on September 11, 2001. This legislation dramatically expanded the authority of U.S. law enforcement for the stated purpose of fighting terrorist acts in the United States and abroad. Its impact has been far-reaching and in some cases has unexpectedly changed the ways in which businesses operate. Nowhere is this more evident than in the financial services industries, particularly in anti-money laundering procedures. The Patriot Act has not only changed the hard rules governing this process, but many of the "soft" rules as well. Seemingly without warning, long-standing financial definitions have changed or have expanded to include new elements. The Global Knowledge Congress has scheduled a teleconference for Tuesday, June 20 at 11:00 a.m. (EST) to analyze this critical legislation.
