Welcome to the Washington Metropolitan Chapter of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE)
We are a not-for-profit professional organization wholly staffed by volunteers, whose primary mission is to promote fraud detection and deterrence through educational training programs, for both anti-fraud professionals and the interested public. We also host networking socials on a periodic basis, which give attendees an opportunity to have informal discussions with one another on topics of interest.
Chapter members have a diverse professional background. Some of us are members of the Federal and state law enforcement community, and others provide investigative, auditing, and consulting services to law firms and business enterprises, governmental and regulatory agencies. Those of us in the public sector are engaged in litigation support, forensic accounting, fraud investigation, and fraud prevention services.
Membership in our chapter is open to Certified Fraud Examiners and Associate members of the ACFE, and others interested in fraud examination. If you would like more information about our organization, please feel free to contact us at Chapter@acfedc.org.
