The Colorado Springs ACFE Chapter is dedicated to upholding the principles and values of the International ACFE Organization. Our mission, like that of our parent organization (the ACFE), is to reduce the incidence of fraud and white-collar crime through education, training and service programs designed to assist our membership and the business community with identification, apprehension, prosecution and deterrence of fraud.

As a local chapter, our members promote an enhanced awareness of fraud and white-collar crime prevention techniques in Southern Colorado. Our Members have the ability to network with other local ACFE members and participate in local training opportunities and are provided with quality professional development and educational resources. This service to the community is accomplished by a group of dedicated volunteers.  If you are interested in the prevention and detection fraud, we encourage you to become a member of our organization.  Membership information can be found here.  Please tell your friends and co-workers about us and ask them to consider joining our Chapter.

As you all know, the success of our Chapter relies, in part, on the commitment, experience and skill sets of our Board membership. Please consider running for a Board position, and feel free to contact any of the Board members with any questions.
