On April 14th, 2015, CMSBA hosted our 2nd training session at UBC Robson Square - Vancouver, BC. It was a cozy event with just under 30 attendants. Below are the survey results from the session:
Section 1: Multiple Choice and Yes/No Questions
Section 2: Most Pressing Concerns and Issues Members Face with Regard to Their Businesses:
Changes in banking procedures
Compliance questions to clients break down trust, making it hard to gain new clients (2)
Section 3: Suggested Topics for Future Sessions
Section 4: General Comments
"I joined/attended to see/hear what MSBs have to go through on a daily basic and see their challenges. I found it very insightful."
"Some PowerPoint presentations are with small fonts that made it difficult to read and understand."
"It was a great training session for all compliance requirements."
“All presentation were very informative, however some of the slides had a lot of information that were not easy to read."
“Thank you for all your work and effort in this CMSB Association. Hope to see you in October 2015."
“FINTRAC should provide a program that addresses all the FINTRAC requirement to make it easy and for particularly small businesses so we all have level playing field. The cost for small business is very expensive and we as an association should canvass the government to provide this program since they want us to comply with their regulations. This would reduce the MSB risks.”
