Megan Jeffries most recently worked at Zions Bancorporation in both the quality assurance and enhanced due diligence functions. She previously served as the board-appointed vice president, Bank Secrecy Act (BSA) officer and deposit compliance officer for Congressional Bank. Jeffries started her banking career at the Bank of Georgetown in human resources, made a brief stop in accounting and finally landed in compliance—she has never looked back.
Outside of full-time employment, Jeffries has spent time consulting for community banks, volunteering for the national suicide hotline, pursuing a Master of Business Administration and living in Peru with family. She has presented for ACAMS as part of the ACAMS Anti-Money Laundering (AML) Foundations course and certificate programs, in addition to having her Certified Anti-Money Laundering Specialist (CAMS) designation. One of her greatest joys during her career has been helping others to understand and apply AML/BSA principles in their work.
Jeffries previously served in the ACAMS U.S. Capital Chapter Program Committee, followed by a term on the ACAMS U.S. Capital Chapter Board. She co-chaired the ACAMS U.S. Capital Chapter’s first and second annual AML/CTF Financial Institutions and Law Enforcement Collaboration Forums, with the goal of enhancing public-private partnerships to create more effective programs.
