But, as soon as one event finishes, another quickly appears on the horizon. You can take my word for it that the ACE UK volunteers are as busy as ever putting the finishing touches to our flagship event, the Annual Fraud Conference, which will be availbe to book shortly. The Conference will be held on 1 October 2015, with the theme: "The Changing Culture of Fraud."

It is my pleasure to announce that our Conference this year will be opened by Mr Donald Toon, Director for the Economic Crime Command of the National Crime Agency (NCA). The Command's is working hard itself to change the cultre of fraud through disrupting criminal activity and educating those most at risk of attack. Donald will joined a number of experts all speaking on topics essential for today's fraud examiner.

After the great success of the 2014 Conference, we are delighted once again to have secured the Carrisbrooke Hall at the Victory Services Club in London as our venue, and we will be holding a networking session for all delegates after the Conference.

We have recently made some changes to how your UK Chapter Committee is organised. Alex McLaren, Fred Parr are stepping down from their current roles as Chapter Officers, and Gus MacKenzie and David Rosen are stepping from the Committee, and I would to thank all them all for their massive contribution over the years.

I am very pleased to welcome Allan Maund, one of our newest members, who has taken up the role of Secretary. The role of Training Directors has been taken up by Roy Burnett, who has transformed our website as Director of Communications over the last 18 months. He has handed the Communications reins over to Steve Hyndman, who is keen to increase our use of social media channels in the coming months. You can find out more about the UK Chapter Committee on the Chapter Officers page.
