    The leadership team wants to thank you for attending and supporting the successful 5th Annual Dayton Fraud, Cyber & Ethics Conference.  The chapter is the primary planner and sponsor of this annual event, and we are pleased to say that this was our most well-attended conference yet.  That record attendance was comprised of people from 20 different states as well as 2 other countries.  We appreciate the preparation and thoughtfulness each of the speakers put into their presentations.  The content was excellent and insightful.  Feedback thus far has included statements such as the conference was "one of the best I've attended!" to "your conference content is spectacular!"  

    We are grateful for our chapter members and event attendees.  Thank you for your support of this event, and for being a part of our chapter.  We hope to see you online for our December meeting.

    At its recent Global Fraud Conference, the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) presented the annual Chapter of the Year Award (Small Market) to the Southwest Ohio Chapter of the ACFE.

    The ACFE is the world's largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. The ACFE has more than 90,000 members located in almost every country in the world. These members primarily consist of Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs), which is the ACFE’s highest credential. CFEs are trained professionals who possess a unique set of diverse skills in preventing, detecting, and investigating fraud. The ACFE and its members reduce business fraud worldwide and inspire public confidence in the integrity and objectivity of the profession.

    The Southwest Ohio ACFE Chapter, founded in 1993, is one of 196 ACFE global chapters. The chapter provides regular meetings and networking opportunities to CFEs, as well as to other business professionals and university students. Many of the chapter’s attendees have careers which involve preventing, detecting, or deterring fraud. Attendees include investigators, law enforcement officers, forensic accountants, certified public accountants, auditors, security professionals, and more. The chapter promotes its core values of Professionalism, Integrity, Collaboration, and Knowledge.

    The ACFE presents the Chapter of the Year Award to the chapter that has excelled in growing and serving its membership during the year. The award is a global award, and the Southwest Ohio Chapter won as the ACFE’s small market chapter of the year, competing with chapters around the world.

    During 2022, the Southwest Ohio ACFE Chapter advanced its mission of serving the community by promoting improved fraud detection and deterrence, providing training events to expand the knowledge of members, and fostering opportunities for members to interact and network. The Southwest Ohio ACFE Chapter was named chapter of the year based on numerous achievements, including:

    • The chapter’s service to its membership and the community by providing consistent, high-quality, low-cost, accessible continuing professional education events. In its last fiscal year, the chapter hosted eight training events, which included the 8-hour Dayton Fraud, Cyber & Ethics conference. The chapter has made its CPE meetings widely available, offering them in-person and virtually.
    • The chapter has grown its membership by more than one hundred percent in five years, and by twenty-one percent just in the last year. The chapter attributes its growth to its excellent content, as well as the availability of this content over virtual platforms. While the chapter is based in Southwest Ohio, in recent years, attendees from all over the country and even the world have participated in virtual events.
    • The chapter’s service to the community is reflected in its efforts to promote the CFE credential to the next generation of fraud fighters by promoting and offering meetings free of charge for students of criminal justice, law, or business and through its financial support of the ACFE Foundation.

    Your leadership team exercised its best creative energy and designed the April meeting around bourbon fraud!  Our speaker is an expert on the topic - so much so that he's written a book about it.  The chapter is subsidizing the majority of the cost of the event and we hope you'll attend to enjoy food, networking, and a fun 1-CPE session!   April 2023 In-Person Meet & Greet: Pappygate, Fakes, and Whiskey Frauds: The Murky Underworld of the Bourbon Boom
