ACFE Board of Regents

The ACFE Board of Regents is elected by the certified members of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). They are responsible for setting membership standards that promote professionalism and ensure the future of the organization as a whole.

The Regents have sole authority over the admission of members, including, but not limited to, examination standards. They also establish Continuing Professional Education (CPE) requirements and are responsible for establishing, modifying and enforcing the CFE Code of Professional Ethics, as well as all other matters necessary to maintain the high standards of the ACFE.

Elections are held annually to fill vacant positions. All Regents elected serve two-year terms and hold office until their successors are duly elected. A Regent may serve only one term and is not eligible for re-election.
