Release date: 7/25/2019

Beloit, WI – Jodi Snively, Vice President and BSA Officer at First National Bank and Trust (FNBT) was recently awarded the Certified AML and Fraud Professional (CAFP) certification from the American Bankers Association.

“Earning the CAFP certification validates Jodi’s experience and depth of education in the prevention of money laundering and fraud crimes,” said Dan Kittleson, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of FNBT.

The CAFP certification is awarded to individuals who demonstrate excellence in the field of AML and fraud prevention. It recognizes an individual’s practical experience in complying with U.S. banking laws and regulations, and their ability to detect, assess and respond to a variety of financial crimes. To qualify for the CAFP certification, individuals must have certain levels of experience and education in the AML and fraud prevention discipline, pass an exam and agree to abide by a code of ethics. The CAFP exam covers many areas including governance and oversight, information management, customer onboarding, monitoring, detecting, responding and reporting processes, and other supporting regulations and guidance.

Snively joined the bank in 2001 and is currently FNBT's Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) Officer. She has experience in accounting and served as bank controller for Macktown State Bank prior to joining the FNBT family. She is a 1988 graduate of Northern Illinois University with a degree in Accounting, and passed the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam that same year. 

Financial services professionals, working through ABA, initiated the CAFP certification and seven others in order to establish meaningful standards of knowledge in specialty areas of the financial services industry. ABA Professional Certifications formally recognize those who meet these standards and meet professional continuing education and development requirements.
