TRANSITION TO NEW CHAPTER OFFICERS FOR 2020!
As I indicated to you in my Special Announcement of last time, I continue in my efforts to identify Central Virginia Chapter member(s) who may be interested in being my replacement as President and Webmaster.
In addition, in order to comply with national ACFE’s Chapter Annual Recertification requirements, we will have to empanel a new slate of Chapter officers for 2020.
A number of members have come forward signally possible interest in serving. I will be sending an email to each of these individuals, identifying them to each other so they can collaborate in setting up the new management structure for the Chapter. I want to encourage any of you who are interested in serving but who have not yet come forward to contact me. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org; please include a phone number so I may call you.
This month’s lecture for Chapter Members
This month’s lecture is ETHICS 2020 for two CPE credits.
Business and the professions increasingly function within a framework created by the expectations of the public. Ethics 2020, our Chapter’s annual update on ethics, concentrates on the increasing public demand for ever more control over unethical corporate and public sector behavior. This powerful trend not only directly effects the practice of all fraud investigation and fraud prevention professionals but of every professional accountant and auditor as well.
Although, as individuals, we may or may not agree with many of the trends in the current thinking, as anti-fraud professionals we owe it to ourselves and to our clients to be aware of them. Enjoy!
Our LinkedIn Page
We encourage all of you to check out the Chapter’s LinkedIn page periodically for announcements about what’s going on with the Chapter and to leave any comments or posts by starting a discussion on the page…if you don’t have a LinkedIn page, it’s easy to set one up for yourself (its free) and then select our ACFE group page to follow.
Also, we are asking all Chapter members to please follow our blog TheInnerAuditor. There you will find blog posts from myself and from guest posters. If any of you would like to share a guest post on any fraud related topic, please send the text to me at email@example.com and I’ll see that it gets published on the blog.
