Members who participate in the council may be asked to participate in quarterly member surveys, speak at ACFE events, write or review course materials, provide industry case studies and assist in professional development activities. By bringing their anti-fraud experience to the Advisory Council, these individuals have the unique opportunity to help the ACFE chart the course for the future of fraud prevention and detection.

The Advisory Council has already left its imprint on key ACFE initiatives. Input from council members have influenced critical decisions regarding the style and usability of; assisted in the improvement of course materials like Auditing for Internal Fraud and Healthcare Fraud; and provided ideas to make ACFE conferences and seminars more beneficial for attendees.

ACFE President and CEO James D. Ratley, CFE, reflected on the growth of the Advisory Council over the past year.

"Today, I am proud to say that this council of fraud-fighting experts dedicated to the improvement and growth of the ACFE has grown to almost 300 members worldwide," Ratley said, adding that "with your guidance, we will continue to be the best provider of anti-fraud education and training in the world." 


Members may participate in reviews, surveys and professional development activities that are on the cutting edge of fraud prevention and detection. There is no set meeting schedule -- instead, Advisory Council members participate through email, providing the flexibility to contribute according to their own availability.
