    To Whom It May Concern,
    I am Cheryl from Mega International Commercial Bank New York Branch. We are highly interested in the AML/CFT webinar 2019 series and we would like to attend the webinars but considering New York is in the different time zone, we could not attend the webinar at that time. Is there any way we can also receive the information delivered in the webinars? Is it possible we can have the audio or video records after the webinars?
