This award is dedicated to the memory of Chris Hohenstein who was a founding member of the Maryland Chapter. Chris was taken from us prematurely on August 24, 1998. This award has been established in memory of his many contributions to the Maryland Chapter ACFE, and to the furtherance of our goals while he served as a Maryland State Trooper and SIU Investigator. Foremost, we remember Chris as our comrade and dear friend.
The Officers and Board of Directors of the Maryland Chapter have voted to present this award annually to recognize those who have made significant contributions to the prevention, detection and/or prosecution of fraud in the State of Maryland. Maryland Chapter CFEs, Associates and Affiliates are encouraged to submit nominations for this award.
