As the new year begins may I thank members of the board and ACFE members for their help and continuing support.
I am very pleased to announce this years European Conference will be held from 19th-21st March 2017 here in London, this will be a great event and one at which you can obtain your years CPD points. Clare Recastle Brown is a keynote speaker with a fasinating story as an investigative journalist she tells of how she exposed the Malaysian 1MDB Corruption case, which no doubt you have read about in the press. A host of other prestigious speakers will inform and educate you about current frauds and preventative measures, please take alook at the website http://www.fraudconference.com/euro2017.aspx and register before the 17th Feb to save 125 Euro.
Applications have been submitted by ACFE members who wish to join the board.
