Local chapters allow you to build strong business and personal relationships with other anti-fraud professionals in your area.Chapters also provide quality, inexpensive training on the latest anti-fraud topics.
All ACFE members in good standing are eligible to join an ACFE chapter. A chapter may allow non-members to become affiliates of the chapter. Affiliates do not have voting rights and are not eligible to hold any chapter office. These individuals are encouraged to join the ACFE to begin taking advantage of the benefits of membership.
Chapters are not chartered with exclusive rights to a community, so multiple chapters in the same community are permitted. However, unless there is a demonstrated need it is unlikely to be approved. If a chapter is too large to manage with the resources available to it, a second chapter would be considered.
There is no fee charged by the ACFE to join a chapter. A chapter may charge membership dues to join. The chapter may also collect fees for participation in its activities. Contact your closest chapter to learn more about joining.
There are many volunteer opportunities in local chapters. Volunteering gives you the chance to develop your leadership skills while serving in your local community. Please contact your closest chapter to learn more about their volunteer opportunities.
