• 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.) 

    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.

    The ACFE is currently accepting or considering proposals for the following events:

    Have experience facilitating a learning environment or speaking to large groups

    Reside, work and have knowledge of the anti-fraud trends in the conference region

    We look for presentations that:

    Clearly apply to the identified target audience

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

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

    Are based on application-focused learning objectives that can realistically be met in the time allotted

    Provide clear, specific and informative content that directly meets the learning objectives

    Demonstrate measurable impact and results in the fight against fraud

    Other considerations to note:

    Global issues addressing interests of the international community and multinational organizations are valued

    Advanced and intermediate topics are preferred over basic or overview session
