Welcome to our Student Affairs and Volunteer Web Page
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.
