    If your school does not already have a student chapter of the ACFE, why not start one? Student chapters can provide ACFE student members with:

    A link to others in your field, who are affiliated with your institution.

    A vehicle for organizing job fairs and career days.

    An opportunity to host speakers for your meetings, take tours, and manage a number of other events.

    Assistance from the ACFE.

    Employment services through the ACFE Career Center.

    Opportunities to make valuable contacts with future employers.

     

    Steps to Charter a Student Chapter: 


    Step 1:

    Nominate a faculty advisor and get his/her consent to serve in this capacity.


    Step 2: 

    Follow university guidelines for establishing a student chapter. Generally, universities will require the chapter to submit student chapter bylaws.


    Step 3: 

    Assemble a minimum of eight students who meet the basic membership requirements. Appoint/choose positions to match the necessary board positions: president, vice president (usually oversees membership), secretary, treasurer. You may also want to include a vice president of programming. Programming is highly important and will drive the success of the chapter.


    Step 4: 

    Schedule the first meeting where students can sign up. The ACFE can supply applications and promotional literature for the first meeting.


    Step 5: 

    To complete the charter requirements, gather together the following elements, along with the necessary student membership fees and mail to association headquarters. Once these materials have been received, you will be notified that your school has fulfilled all necessary requirements and that a chapter has been chartered.
