  • Accommodations
    I understand if I reserve a room at the course hotel, the hotel may disclose to the ACFE non-financial reservation information, (name, dates of stay), for the purpose of updating and confirming the event room block. Room block rates are subject to availability.

    By registering for this event, I grant the ACFE or anyone authorized by the ACFE, the right to use or publish in print or electronic format, any photographs or video containing my image or likeness for any promotional purpose, without compensation.
