SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Annunzio-Wylie Anti-Money Laundering Act 
of 1992 required the Secretary of the Treasury to establish a Bank 
Secrecy Act Advisory Group (BSAAG) consisting of representatives from 
federal regulatory and law enforcement agencies, financial 
institutions, and trade groups with members subject to the requirements 
of the Bank Secrecy Act, 31 CFR 1000-1099 et seq. or Section 6050I of 
the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. The BSAAG is the means by which the 
Treasury receives advice on the operations of the Bank Secrecy Act. As 
chair of the BSAAG, the Director of FinCEN is responsible for ensuring 
that relevant issues are placed before the BSAAG for review, analysis, 
and discussion.
    BSAAG membership is open to financial institutions, trade groups, 
and non-federal regulators and law enforcement agencies. Membership is 
granted to organizations, not to individuals. Organizational members 
will be selected to serve a three-year term and must designate one 
individual to represent that member at plenary meetings. The designated 
representative should be knowledgeable about Bank Secrecy Act 
requirements and the representative's organization must be able and 
willing to devote the necessary personnel time and effort. Examples of 
expected effort include actively sharing not just anecdotal 
perspectives, but also quantifiable insights, on BSA requirements and 
industry trends in BSAAG discussions. The organization's representative 
must be able to attend biannual plenary meetings, generally conducted 
over one or two days, held in Washington, DC, in May and October. 
Additional BSAAG meetings are held by phone or in person.

or travel. In making the selections, FinCEN will seek to complement 
current BSAAG members in terms of affiliation, industry, and geographic 
representation. The Director of FinCEN retains full discretion on all
