The University of the West Indies Open Campus Anguilla collaborated with The Anguilla Financial Services Commission (AFSC), The Anguilla Commercial Registry (ACORN) and The Anguilla Compliance Association (ACA) to host a Compliance Workshop for some seventy (70) participants in February. Under the theme “Understanding Compliance Management”, the aim of the Workshop was to create awareness on how compliance affects Anguillians and to examine its relevancy, the regulation of the financial sector in a changing global environment and establishing effective compliance programmes. Attendees at the timely and informative session included representatives from the public and private sectors, non-profit organisations, members of the Financial Services community, students and the general public.
Workshop Facilitators with Open Campus Staff
Featured presenters included Deputy Director of Anguilla Financial Services Commission, Mrs. Tina Bryan-Bannister, Deputy Registrar of Anguilla Commercial Registry, Mr. Lonnie Hobson and Education and Training Officer of the Anguilla Compliance Association, Mrs. Fiona Curtis.

The Workshop was the first in a series of compliance-related initiatives being presented as part of the Continuing and Professional Education (CPE) programme at the UWI Open Campus Anguilla. The organisers aim to continue providing advanced Risk, Governance and Compliance courses for those in the Financial Services industry and the general public seeking professional development in these fields.
