Would you like to gain recognition as an expert in your field by sharing your knowledge and skills with ACFE members and other anti-fraud professionals? We are proud to offer experienced anti-fraud professionals and subject-matter experts the opportunity to present at an ACFE conference or webinar. In our continuing effort to provide the best training events possible to our members and attendees, we invite you to submit proposals to speak at future ACFE conferences and webinars. (Conference sessions are either 50 or 75 minutes long; webinars are 100 minutes long.) In addition to becoming a recognized expert in the industry, you also earn CPE when you present for the ACFE.
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. In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have moved some conferences to a virtual platform. If selected, all speakers will receive training and assistance to present a virtual session.
NOTE: Due to the short session duration and the economics of travel and coordination, the ACFE rarely entertains proposals for panels or co-presenters. If necessary, co-presenters should be noted in the proposal in the Abstract section.

Other considerations to note:
The ACFE has launched a new speaker proposal process. To submit a proposal, click on the link at the bottom of this page. If you do not have an ACFE account, you will be asked to create one to proceed. When you have logged in to the portal, you may review your contact information and then select the “Submit Proposals” tab. Using the “Submit New Proposal” button, you can complete the proposal application.
Please review your proposal carefully as the form may only be submitted once per proposal topic. After submission, you will be able to review your proposals but will not be able to edit them. 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.
If selected for one of our events, you will be contacted a couple of months before the event date listed above. The ACFE requires all accepted speakers to review and electronically sign a Speaker Guidelines and Agreement in our speaker portal. Selected speakers will also be required to submit additional items such as: Speaker Bio, Speaker Headshot and PowerPoint presentation.
