ACFE Membership More Than a Certificate


Mandy Moody
ACFE Social Media Specialist

My parents were both notorious for quoting one-liners they had picked up from old television shows (I think they had color back then) or recalled from inspirational books and sermons. Many Saturday mornings began with my mother knocking on my bedroom door and yelling with a slight Southern twang, “Rise and shine,” and just as many Sunday evenings closed with my father tucking me in my bed explaining, “Life is like a boomerang, Mandy. You always get back what you give.” Today, I pass on these colloquial, yet universal, bits of advice as you think about the different ways you can get the most out of your ACFE membership. For many of you, if not all, membership can be much more than a certificate, an acronym or even a conference.
