12/27/2017 -- About a year ago, I discussed embracing social media as a resource tool to aid in a credit union's anti-money laundering (AML) compliance efforts. As a follow-up to that discussion, I would like to mention the top five reasons for the non-use of social media, as well as the importance of developing social media use policies and procedures.
