Season's Greetings to all the Institute members
As the newly elected Chair for the Institute, I'd like to wish you all a happy, restful and safe Christmas and the best for 2017.
Over the next couple of weeks I will be working with the Board to agree a series of events for 2017. If you'd like to see a specific topic covered then please let me know.
The Institute of Counter Fraud Specialists was established to provide direction and assistance to members and advance the profession of Counter Fraud Specialist (CFS). It came about when an increasing number of CFS, linked by a common specialist qualification, came to a growing consensus about how they should work and the standards expected of them and from that the Institute was the next natural step.
Our Forum (Members Only) is now live - discuss Counter Fraud, Anti-Bribery/Corruption, General Investigative and training - we also have a section for members to post vacancies that they may have.
Our Documents Library (Members Only) is now also live.
To be a Full Member of the Institute you need to be an Accredited Counter Fraud Specialist or be able to demonstrate suitable experience or qualifications.
If you have not yet qualified as an ACFS but are currently undergoing Foundation Level training, you can join as a Student Member.
If you have not attained the ACFS qualification but work within the counter fraud community and can demonstrate suitable experience or other qualifications you may still be eligible to join - please see the appropriate membership application form.
The Executive Board are due to met 7th June 2016.
