Board Members Join Academicians and Students at Salisbury University

Several members of the Chapter's Board are shown here with faculty and students of Salisbury University's Fraud and Forensic Accounting Program. Board Members attended the Shore Fraud Conference on the campus Nov. 22, 2019. The Chapter hosted an information table so others could learn about our activities and find out how to join us. Also, Chapter members joined a number of other conference participants from Maryland, Delaware, and Virginia who heard from James Ratley, president emeritus of ACFE, and other speakers.  Moreover, on this occasion the Chapter provided a donation to the University's Fraud and Forensic Accounting Program.  More about the contribution can be found on our Scholarships/Awards page

Chapter Assisted ACFE Training in Baltimore

Volunteers from the Chapter's Board of Directors provided administrative support at ACFE's training program in Baltimore Oct. 30 through Nov. 1.  ACFE's lecturers on legal aspects of fraud and interviewing skills trained more than 50 participants from across the country and other nations gathered at the Hilton Baltimore. Board Members Robert Hauf, Heather McLaughlin, Regina Miante, and Daniel Semick represented the Chapter at the event.

Two Maryland Members SERVE ACFE GLOBAL COMMITTEES

R. Frank Abel, President of the Maryland Chapter, is a member of the Higher Education Initiative Committee. The Committee provides guidance for ACFE to develop and promote anti-fraud education in college and university disciplines such as accounting, management, business and criminal justice.

Daniel Semick, the Chapter’s Secretary, was selected for Fraud magazine’s Editorial Advisory Committee.  The Committee ensures that articles published in the magazine meet high professional standards in keeping with ACFE's global leadership position in fraud examination and allied disciplines.
