About the ACFE


Established in 1996, the San Diego Area Chapter #30 is one of more than 181 worldwide chapters sponsored by the internationally renowned Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE). Our primary mission is to reduce the occurrence of fraud and white‚Äźcollar crime by educating members, students and the local community at large in its detection and deterrence. 

The San Diego Area Chapter supports this mission through its continuing professional education programs (CPE's) and seminars, which promote an enhanced awareness of fraud prevention and detection techniques among its membership and throughout the business and law enforcement communities. At the same time, program attendees are provided the opportunity to earn their annual continuing education credits and network with a diverse group of professionals in related fields.

Our regular San Diego Chapter Seminars/ Continuing Education Courses (CPE's) are on the 4th Thursday of January, March, May, July, and September. 

Note, Chapter Board meetings take place following all Seminars/ Continuing Education Courses (CPE's) and yes, chapter members are welcome to sit in on these meetings in order to gain further involvement in the chapter.
