About the Central Carolina Chapter

The Central Carolina Chapter, Inc. is a non-profit corporation registered with the North Carolina Secretary of State. The Chapter operates under the authority of the International Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, headquartered in Austin, Texas. The Chapter’s mission is to provide quality training and education to members who have been certified by the Association in Austin, Texas and to other members and professionals in the auditing and investigations fields.

Membership is available at the Chapter level to CFE’s, Associate members of the national organization, and to students at colleges and universities in appropriate majors. Current chapter members are engaged in such professions as auditing, law enforcement, accounting, investigation, legal management, and loss prevention and detection fields. The Chapter does not certify members as being “experts” in the fraud examination professions, but only provides instruction and training in the deterrence, detection, and prosecution of fraud.

Please note that the chapter is set up to serve its members. If you have an ideas on how to improve the newsletter or ideas on future speakers, please contact us. Also, please let us know if you have any general concerns or questions.

Accomplishments – If you would like to share news of accomplishments that you or other members have made, please notify us (i.e., having articles published, etc.).

Finally, if you have job openings you would like to post, please notify us.

Chapter and ACFE Rules

Board members (Officers and Directors) should be familiar with the Chapter and ACFE Rules regarding Chapter Administration. If you plan to run for office, please look in the back of your Chapter Directory and become familiar with the information on both Chapter rules and procedures and ACFE procedures.

When you take a job with the Chapter, you must be able to perform the tasks associated with the job and you must attend the Board of Directors meetings (only four meetings a year) unless you have been excused from a work related director position by the Board.

We have several active committees. If you are interested in performing committee work for the chapter, please contact the President—Jean Hobbs (
