• 2018 ACFE Call for Speakers

    In our continuing effort to provide the best training events possible to our members and attendees, the ACFE invites experienced anti-fraud professionals and subject-matter experts to submit proposals to speak at future ACFE conferences and webinars. (Conference sessions are either 75 or 80 minutes long; webinars are 100 minutes long.)

    ACFE Webinars
    We are always accepting proposals for webinar presentations.

    Selection Criteria
    A proposed session must clearly apply to the identified target audience and be delivered by a speaker with substantial topic knowledge (i.e., a subject-matter expert) and experience facilitating a learning environment and/or speaking to large groups. For regional conferences, we select speakers who reside, work and have knowledge of the anti-fraud trends in that region.  

    Our committee evaluates proposals using the following criteria:  

    Advanced and intermediate topics preferred over basic or overview sessions

    Current, practical and innovative content that relates to the anti-fraud profession

    Programs and best practices that demonstrate measurable impact and results in the fight against fraud

    Global issues addressing interests of the international community and multinational organizations

    Application-focused learning objectives that can realistically be met in the time allotted

    Clear, specific and informative content that is directly linked to the learning objectives

    Completeness, accuracy and clarity

    Anti-fraud skills that attendees can "begin to use Monday morning"

    Proposals submitted for one event can also be considered for another conference or webinar at the discretion of the ACFE and with approval of the speaker.

    NOTE: Due to the short session duration and the economics of travel, coordination, etc., the ACFE rarely entertains proposals for panels or co-presenters. If necessary, co-presenters should be noted in the proposal in the Abstract section.

    Submission Process

    To submit a proposal, click on the link at the bottom of this page and complete every field on the proposal form. Many more proposals are submitted than can be selected, so it is important that you include all required and relevant information to be properly and fairly considered.

    Shortly after you have submitted a proposal you will receive an email notification with a copy of your proposal confirming receipt by the ACFE. Please check your junk folder if you do not receive confirmation. 

    Speaker Requirements, Guidelines and Agreements
    If selected for one of our events, you will be contacted by the notification date listed above.
    The ACFE requires all accepted speakers to review, sign and return a Speaker Guidelines and Agreement document. Review the Sample Speaker Guidelines from a past Global Fraud Conference
