One of the most popular questions I get in our online Career Center’s Ask the Expert section is about how to meet more anti-professionals, either to share ideas or look for career opportunities. I consistently reply with, “Networking, networking, networking.” And, not just social networking, but face-to-face networking; the kind of networking where you look someone in the eyes and convey who you truly are and what you really represent. One of the biggest benefits of attending the upcoming 24th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference, June 23-28 in Las Vegas, is the opportunity to experience that vital kind of networking. Through a series of coordinated events, you can meet with practitioners, specialists and other anti-fraud professionals face-to-face to not only make an impression, but share ideas, best practices and lessons learned.
Here are some ways you can do that:
Welcome Reception: Sunday, June 23 • 7-9 p.m.
This is a great opportunity to meet vendors while getting a sneak peek at the latest anti-fraud services and products. And, of course, enjoy the refreshments and hors d’oeuvres.
International Attendee Reception: Sunday, June 23 • 7-9 p.m.
Held in conjunction with the Welcome Reception, this first-ever networking opportunity allows attendees from outside the U.S. to meet other global fraud fighters.
Connect with attendees facing similar challenges during a dedicated Networking Break for your group or industry. View the time and industry breakdowns.
Join the 24th Annual ACFE Global Fraud Conference LinkedIn Group or log on to the ACFE Member Forum to begin connecting with others in your industry. Also, once you arrive at the ARIA, check out the Bulletin Boards located near registration for another opportunity to create your own networking group. There you'll find sign-up sheets to allow attendees to create or join a group for an informal meeting, group dinner or social outing.
Attendee Networking Reception: Tuesday, June 25 • 7-9 p.m.
Tickets: $75 per person
Enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres while building your professional circle in the poolside setting at the ARIA. Visit with colleagues and potential clients and customers in a relaxed, social setting. Tickets may be purchased at the registration desk or at the reception entrance on the day of the event.
Industry Networking Tables
Gather with attendees from your industry before and during the General Sessions. Reserved tables, located along the center aisle in the Bristlecone Ballroom, will be available for the following groups: Financial Institutions, Government and Law Enforcement, Women in the Anti-Fraud Profession, Investigators/Corporate Security, Young Professionals, Governance, Risk and Compliance, CPA/Chartered Accountants, Internal Auditors, International Attendees, Chapter Leaders and Self-Employed CFEs.
The list above is only a few of the ways you can network with other attendees at the ACFE Global Fraud Conference. Visit FraudConference.com for more information and to plan your Conference.
