Welcome to our Student Affairs and Volunteer Web Page
** The 2018 Fraud Investigations Career Day is coming - mark your Calendars for 9/28/18 **
The role of the Georgia Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (GACFE) student affairs committee is to assist and mentor Georgia
college students who are interested in pursuing careers as future anti-fraud professionals. This initiative stems from a desire to give back,
educate, and afford the networking, and mentoring opportunities to students in ways that we may have never had back in college
ourselves.Our committee volunteers come from the private and government sectors. The one thing they all share in addition to being
professional fraud fighters, is they are all committed to mentoring the future fraud investigators and examiners of tomorrow.

...think the ACFE isn't for you? Think again, as Dr. Richard Wright, Chairperson of the Criminal Justice Department of Georgia State University explains otherwise.

Once again, stay tuned towards the very end of the video for a very important piece that speaks to diversity and any misperceptions of what it takes to become a CFE or simply being involved with the ACFE.
