The ACFE’s Top 3 New Year’s Resolutions for 2015


Courtney Pedersen
ACFE Communications Coordinator

I have yet to decide my 2015 New Year’s resolutions. And well into the New Year, I am still drawing a blank. In 2012, I resolved to have a “real” job six months after college graduation (check). In 2013, I resolved to buy a home in the crazy Austin, Texas, market (check). And, in 2014, I resolved to live healthier so I joined a gym (check. Well, I joined a gym; whether or not I am active in said gym is not worthy of discussion). Thankfully, as always, the ACFE is prepared this New Year to do more for you in 2015 than ever before.

  1. Offer you even more online resources
    With online self-studies, a fraud resource library, and more, the ACFE provides a variety of online resources to give you access to cutting-edge anti-fraud knowledge, whenever and wherever you need it. In 2015, the ACFE will expand these offerings, including YouTube videos that are shareable with colleagues and clients, career videos, podcasts and more. 

  2. Redesign will become a responsive site in 2015 and will boast a fresh, new design. This means that whether you are on a computer, tablet or mobile device, your experience will be seamless and user-friendly. The site will also offer more online content and make reading the latest in fraud prevention and detection even easier.

  3. Host the largest anti-fraud conference ever, and offer more live events and seminars
    The 2015 ACFE Global Fraud Conference is on schedule to be the world’s largest anti-fraud conference to date with more than 3,000 expected to attend in Baltimore. Not only are we concentrating on making this experience memorable and informative, we have also been concentrating on growing our international events. Last year the ACFE held 12 international events, compared to eight events in 2013. This year, we plan to continue to offer international members the opportunity to network and learn in a seminar environment in cities like Dubai, United Arad Emirates, San Juan, Puerto Rico, and more.

The ACFE’s New Year’s resolutions will help all members this year in the office and abroad. Whether you have decided on your resolution or are still pondering like I am, just remember that the ACFE is committed to doing more for you in 2015.
