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‐collar 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.

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

Chapter Board meetings take place following all Seminars/ Continuing Education Courses (CPE's) and are open to all active chapter members (CFE's, Associates & Students).

2018 ACFE Scholarship Challenge


Each year the ACFE challenges its chapters to donate to the ACFE Foundation, which helps provide scholarships to future anti-fraud professionals. The ACFE Foundation awards scholarships to students ranging from $1,000-$10,000 per student, with a total of $53,000 awarded each year. In 2018, the ACFE has increased that amount to $55,000.  For more details, click on this link to the National ACFE website.
