A message from the ACFE UK Chapter Chairman & President

Jim Oakes, Regent Emeritus, CFE CFCI.    


May I extend the warmest of welcomes to you all.

With more than 70,000 members worldwide, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners is a global, professional association whose members are dedicated to fighting fraud. Headquartered in Austin, Texas, USA, the association supports local and national chapters with our own, the United Kingdom chapter, being one of the largest outside of the USA. 

The UK chapter was established in 1993, building in strength with new members coming from all parts of the fraud investigation field, from individuals to Public and Private bodies. Unique to all ACFE Chapters worldwide, membership to the UK Chapter is free of charge and automatic for those ACFE members who are resident within the British Isles.  Through supporting our events, members, guests and sponsors currently provide sufficient funding to enable the chapter to operate.

Fighting fraud is a challenge for all of us, regardless of our field of specialisation. Accountants, auditors, investigators, law enforcement personnel, lawyers, business leaders and educators – every ACFE member has immediate access to world-class anti-fraud resources and tools. They also have the opportunity to share in current fraud knowledge, and an unlimited opportunity to expand it. 

The UK Chapter holds regular events throughout the year, including its hugely popular Annual Conference. Our conference this year will be held on 1st October in London, with the theme of ‘The Future of Fighting Fraud’.  We would love to see you there to enjoy the presentations from a world class panel of speakers, and join with us during one of the networking opportunities.

If you feel that you would like to speak at a UK Chapter event, or would like to learn more about a particular fraud topic, please contact us and let us know. Full details can be found on the events page.
