Local Chapters

ACFE chapters are organized by members who reside in a particular geographic region (i.e., a city or country) and share an interest in the detection and deterrence of fraud. An added benefit of ACFE membership is the opportunity to get involved immediately with your local chapter. Chapters act as local representatives of the ACFE, providing continued support for members worldwide.

The Inland Empire Area Chapter supports the international mission of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners through its educational programs and seminars, which promote an enhanced awareness of fraud prevention, detection and investigation techniques among its membership and throughout the business and law enforcement communities. At the same time, program attendees are provided an opportunity to earn their annual continuing education credits and network with a diverse group of professionals in related fields.

The benefits of Chapter membership include:

  • Discounts on Chapter seminars;
  • The opportunity to earn continuing professional education credit at member rates;
  • Excellent professional networking opportunities.


Membership in the Inland Empire chapter is separate from membership with the national association. Annual dues are collected on the same date as the initial membership sign up (if you became a member on May 21st, your dues would be due each successive May 21st). Members who have not paid their dues within 30 days of this date will be removed from the Inland Empire chapter member roster until current dues have been received.
