The Kenyan Chapter

The need to raise the standard of fraud examination in Kenya, and for a professional body – which was not limited to a specific profession such as accounting or law – resulted in the establishment of a local chapter. The mission of the local chapter is to provide a community environment in which local forensic examination practitioners can associate. This chapter is a collection of individuals in Kenyaa from all industries and professions, who have a single goal in mind; the reduction of white-collar crime in Kenya.
While we are an official chapter of the International Association, it is important to note that membership of the local chapter is optional and separate from that of the Association. We have Interest Groups in different regions and Provinces to increase service delivery to our members. These groups meet regularly to promote network and training opportunities in their regions.
The ACFE encourages Certified Fraud Examiners (CFEs) and Associate members to support local chapters.

Chapter participation gives you the opportunity to meet other anti-fraud professionals in your area who are facing the same challenges you are. Sharing insights, techniques and experience, in addition to promoting fraud awareness in your community, is invaluable to the global fight against fraud. You may join the local chapter at any stage in the process, or even opt to only join the local chapter. Local membership gives you access to all the Kenya Chapter benefits but not to ACFE International benefits or the CFE Exam.
