How We Started
In recognition of the fact that Banks have a pivotal role in spreading the Compliance crusade, the idea of a platform where Banks as major stakeholders, would interact on a non-competitive but cooperative and collaborative basis alongside other stakeholders was mooted.
An inaugural session to kick start the formation of the Association took place on April 26th 2007 at Eko Hotels & Suites. In attendance were representatives of various stakeholder organizations including the CBN, EFCC, NDLEA, KPMG, The United States Consulate, CIBN and of course, member banks amongst others.
The result of all the efforts, consultations and series of lengthy deliberations was the emergence of the Committee of Chief Compliance Officers of Banks in Nigeria (CCCOBIN) in June 2007. In 2017, as part of its 10th Anniversary celebrations, the name of the Committee was changed to Association of Chief Compliance Officers of Banks in Nigeria (ACCOBIN)
