I can’t believe ACAMS Today and I share a birthday month. ACAMS Today was born 10 years ago in March of 2002. As I pulled out the old issues of ACAMS Today from storage and flipped through the many editions, I noticed that from the very beginning ACAMS Today’s mission has always been to provide a forum for joint sharing of essential knowledge and skills required to not only survive as a compliance professional, but to thrive.
ACAMS Today has grown much over its lifetime. New developments have brought new changes, growing from a small newsletter style publication to a full magazine. Progress continues and now we are pleased to offer additional online content on ACAMSToday.org.
You, the reader and contributor are the reason ACAMS Today has been so successful. We encourage you to continue your hard work and to utilize ACAMSToday.org. Your contributions will help make this resource a robust and important one.

Editorial Task Force
I would like to thank the many contributors that have provided articles to the ACAMS Today throughout the last 10 years, but I would like to especially thank the ACAMS editorial task force, whose continuous efforts have helped shape the ACAMS Today into a first-class publication. They have truly achieved and fulfilled the editorial task force’s mission of providing insightful and timely AML/CTF-related content, awareness of financial crime issues by supplying useful information that has given compliance professionals the tools needed to perform their duties in a resourceful and practical manner.
