leading anti-fraud practitioners.
It is the home of Deep Dish Pizza and the Chicago Dog, the Magnificent Mile and Wrigley Field, "All That Jazz" and the House of Blues. The most notorious gangster in history, Al Capone, once ruled the local Mafia here until he was famously jailed by fraudbusters for tax evasion. And it will be the site of the largest confabulation of anti-fraud professionals ever as the ACFE presents the 14th Annual Fraud Conference & Exhibition Aug. 3-8 at the majestic Hilton Chicago & Towers overlooking Lake Michigan.
Leading practitioners in the anti-fraud field will help fine-tune your skills as you learn about new developments in the profession. And this will be the only opportunity this year to join more than 1,000 peers who share a commitment to fighting fraud.
This event is actually three conferences in one; participants can attend any or all segments.
- The four-hour Pre-Conference, "Vendor Fraud Audits," on Sunday, Aug. 3. will teach how to identify vendors who may be defrauding you as well as what to do about it when you have caught one.
- In the 2 1/2-day Main Conference, Aug. 4-6, you will choose breakout sessions from 10 tracks offering new material for everyone and attend several thought-provoking general sessions with high-profile speakers.
- The Post-Conference, Aug. 8-9, is divided into tracks for auditors and investigators, and provides basic-level training in the tools and techniques of fraud examination.
By attending all segments, fraud examination practitioners can earn up to 44 fraud-related continuing professional education (CPE) hours.
The 14th Annual Fraud Conference will also feature a vendor exhibition, beginning on Sunday evening, Aug. 3, and continuing through Tuesday, Aug. 5. The exhibition gives attendees an opportunity to experience first-hand the latest in anti-fraud products on the market. Vendors will showcase their fraud- fighting tools and you will be able to meet with them one-on-one, try out new software, and see for yourself the many fraud prevention resources that are available.
If you would like your company to exhibit its products and services at the Exhibition or become a Conference Sponsor, call Leslie Simpson at the Association or e-mail her at lsimpson@CFEnet.com.
The Association will host two social events: a Welcome Reception on Sunday, Aug. 3 and a party on Tuesday, Aug. 5.
