The ACFE is the world’s largest anti-fraud organization and premier provider of anti-fraud training and education. Together with nearly 75,000 members, the ACFE is reducing business fraud worldwide and inspiring public confidence in the integrity and objectivity within the profession.
When asked by Larry King on what makes a comedian great, Jerry Seinfeld, certainly one of our generation’s very best, replied “it was a comedian who cared about his audience”. Drawing from this analogy, a person can be a great Chairman / Chairwoman only if he / shecares about the profession and its members, and in our case, the ACFE and all of its members.
With that message in mind, it gives me immense pleasure to be elected as Chairwoman of the ACFE’s UAE Chapter as I deeply care about all the work we do and our profession. I am sincerely honored and thankful to all members who have believed and supported me in making this moment possible.
I would also like to thank the current team that has been serving our Chapter and its membership for many years in achieving its mission.
As most of you are aware, the ACFE’s mission is to reduce the incidence of fraud and white-collar crime as well as to assist its Membership in fraud detection and deterrence. I, as your newly elected Chairwoman, with the support of our President and Board of Directors, will work relentlessly to accomplish this mission.
With a focus on the increasing emphasis and importance of fraud awareness across our region, it is now time, more than ever, to push and accelerate our efforts in supporting our Members by equipping them with the right skills through our training events.
Let us work together to make our ACFE Chapter a great and memorable success in the UAE and region.
