The ACFE strongly recommends that you join your local chapter. Chapter participation gives you the opportunity to meet other anti-fraud professionals in your area who are facing the same challenges you are. Sharing insights, techniques and experience, in addition to promoting fraud awareness in your community, is invaluable to the global fight against fraud. It is important to note that your local and ACFE status must correspond.
You may join the local chapter at any stage in the process, or even opt to only join the local chapter.
