    Do you have any ideas for speakers? (You? A friend? Someone from a particular type of organization?)

    Do you have any ideas for speaker topics? (Yes, ethics is on the list! Other thoughts: interviewing; IT fraud; hacking; risk assessment; fraud against seniors; locating hidden assets; failure to detect fraud…  Your preferences?)

    Do you have any ideas for a good networking/social event for chapter members?

    Do you have a charity/community event with which the chapter could assist in some way?

    Would you be willing to assist the chapter in activities during International Fraud Awareness Week (November 13-19, 2016)? (Would your company be interested in being a sponsor for one or more activities?)

    If you answered yes to any of these questions, please get in touch with me ( or one of the other board members. We'd love your input!

    We are rolling out a new and more interactive website for our members.  Your board recently voted to move the chapter website and payment gateway to the "Wild Apricot" website to better serve our chapter members.

    This new site will allow members to self-register and immediately pay online for all of our chapter events.  This should streamline both the registration and payment process, and also the sign-in process at all of our training meetings.  It also will give members access to a members only section of our website and the ability for members to manage their membership better.

    The roll-out of the new website is ongoing and improvements will continue in the upcoming weeks.  Some of the things that will be done over the next few weeks are pointing our domain name ( to the new website, improved content (as soon as I can get Cecily to write it for me), additional content and more member specific content. 

    In the meantime, you should always be able to reach the new website at:
