Welcome

The ACFE is the world's largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with nearly 70,000 members, the ACFE is reducing business fraud worldwide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession.

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.
