We are excited to start our new CPE year for 2018-2019. By now you should have received our first email blast about our September meeting. The September meeting will be on Tuesday September 4th. We are meeting on a Tuesday due to the first Monday being Labor Day.
We have had at least one person for which the link to the September meeting did not work. If the registration link is not working please go to: https://acotaocfe.wildapricot.org/event-3034157 to register.
We have a list of our planned meeting dates available on the home page of the chapter website at http://www.austinacfe.com. Please note that in November, we will be meeting on the first Tuesday because our meeting room at Maggiano’s was not available.
The board met over the summer and decided to keep pricing for events the same as last year. We believe that this is a great value for CPE. We did decide to not turn away walk-ins at our lunch-n-learn meetings if we have room for them. However, we did price walk-ins higher because our cost at Maggiano’s is higher for people who did not pre-register. Those prices are listed on the events page.
Next year the 30th ACFE Global Fraud Conference will be held in Austin. The ACFE will be asking for the Austin Chapter to assist with the event by providing volunteers at the conference and by hosting an event during the week. We are considering a live music event at the Bob Bullock State History Museum along with some other ideas. We will be asking for volunteers to help at the Fraud Conference and the Austin Chapter event that will be held that week.
We have many new officers this year as well as chair people for two newly formed committees. You can learn more about each of them on our board page on the website. Each of us is here to help every member of our chapter however we can. Please feel free to reach out to us if we can be of service.
