    This week is the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) International Fraud Awareness Week (IFAW), November 15 - 21, 2020. The week was established in 2000 to bring awareness about fraud and encourage business leaders to be proactive fighting against fraud and promoting anti-fraud awareness and education.  Many of your agencies and businesses may be recognizing IFAW this week and encouraging you to do your part in fighting fraud in your place of work and/or with clients and customers.  As we learned last month with Sara Oliver, Special Agent with Office of Inspector General, U.S. Small Business Administration, fraud has not slowed down this year and neither have we.

    That is why I feel it is so important to provide education and awareness through our monthly virtual trainings.  I hope you are taking part and would encourage you to invite others to watch as well, especially as they are free or at a low cost for the exceptional value.  This month the virtual luncheon is Thursday, November 19, featuring James Cornelius, Security Manager, Tennessee Comptroller of the Treasury, and he will be discussing Cyber Fraud in 2020: Threats in Brief.  Next month we have 2 hours of Fraud Ethics!

    While Fall is in full swing, unfortunately Covid-19 is too.  For the foreseeable future, our luncheons will remain virtual and our March Middle Tennessee Annual Fraud Conference will be too.  We still have an awesome line up of speakers scheduled and I hope you will join us for that event.  Please continue to check our website for updates and information.  To that end, if you would like to be more involved and work on a committee to help the chapter run smoothly, we could use the help.  Due to life changes this year, we have open committee positions that need to be filled in the following:




    Job Placement

    And we could always use additional help in the Historic and Social Media committees.

    The holidays are fast approaching, and I wish each of you a joyous and safe celebration!

    WELCOME to the 29th year of the Middle Tennessee Chapter of ACFE!  I hope you are as excited as I am to see what this next year holds.  I feel very honored to be serving as your President this year and know this has been a crazy time so far.  This is definitely a year we will never forget, but I am happy to report our chapter continues to move forward.   I feel very blessed to have our immediate Past President Barry Pruitt just a phone call or email away, as he continues to assist in guiding the chapter.  We also have Jason Conner serving as Vice President, Lauren Wesley as Secretary, Michael Booher as Treasurer, and Micheal Baer, Phyllis Pickett, Jessica Scouten and Teri Williams return as the 20/21 Board of Directors.  Britt Wood is serving as our Training Director.  We have a board that can handle just about anything, including Covid-19.

    In accordance with our bylaws purpose and objectives; we will continue to serve the community and promote improved fraud detection and deterrence through the expansion of knowledge and interaction of our members.  To enable us to do that for the rest of this year, we will be hosting virtual luncheons & meetings using Webex.  We are thrilled to be having Member Benefit Day, September 17 for 8 hours of CPE!  December 10th is our Virtual Brunch featuring 2 hours of CPE of Ethics-Fraud related.  We have diverse speakers lined up for August, October, and November as well.

    Please take a minute to look at our website, as it has been updated this year and become familiar with finding upcoming events, how to register and to view all the scholarship winners for 2020.  Check out our News tab (below) for current Save the Date information of upcoming events. Our chapter has been active for 28 years and will continue to be active long into the future and I hope you will join in by participating, asking questions, serving on a committee, and even having fun while learning.  

    Next week on August 20, we kick off the new year with Dr. Beverley Alleyne, RFI & Phil McGovern, CPA, CFE, MACC at our first virtual luncheon event of the year, so do not forget to register!

    President's Message

    Dear Chapter Members,

    June marks my final President’s Message for the MTACFE.  I have had the distinct pleasure of leading an incredible Board.  I truly believe our Chapter has endured a year like no other in our 28-year history.  I cannot image navigating through such times without such a strong Leadership Team.

    This morning I passed the gavel to President-Elect Suzzie Singleton at our virtual Board Meeting (pictured above).  Her enthusiasm and love for the Chapter is infectious and inspiring.  We couldn’t be more fortunate to have her stepping into this role. 

    Jason Conner is serving as Vice-President.  Jason held the office of President when we hosted the ACFE Global conference.  As fate would have it, Jason will again be President when the ACFE Global Conference returns to Nashville in 2022.

    Board members Micheal Baer, Phyllis Pickett, Jessica Scouten and Teri Williams return as the 20/21 Board of Directors.  I am proud to sit on this Board as Past President as they lead us forward. 

    My experience as Chapter President has been fun, educational, exciting, sometimes disappointing, but always interesting.  I am grateful and honored to have been entrusted with leadership of the Chapter over the last year. My successes are only because I stood “on the shoulders of giants.”

    Thank you and have a happy and safe summer.

    Dear Chapter Members,

    During this time of year, it is not only a wonderful time to reflect on the year that is ending, but also look forward to the upcoming New Year.  As I look back at this Chapter year, I see all of the many accomplishments that make the Middle Tennessee Chapter stand-out as an exceptional ACFE Chapter!  The Middle Tennessee Chapter has many dedicated, passionate, hard-working, and fun-loving members.  Without these members, we could not accomplish our annual strategic goals, nor any of the high-quality core programs and benefits that the MTACFE is known for.  In addition, we continue to develop new friendships and professional relationships that are known to last a lifetime.  The education, professional development, and camaraderie are beyond compare.

    I’d like to briefly encourage everyone to hurry and register for both the January 16, 2020 Luncheon at Scarritt Bennett, and our February 3, 2020 joint AGA luncheon at the Double Tree.      
    If you have not experienced the Middle Tennessee Annual Conference, I hope you will make the 2020 Annual Conference a part of your New Year’s resolutions. This year’s conference is full of changes, including a new venue and new dates.  From March 16 to 17, this year’s event will be held at the brand new Shinn Center on the Lipscomb University campus. We are excited to introduce the conference theme, “Building Our Best Anti-Fraud Framework”. We have great speakers lined up and lots of big-conference features.  Registration is now open.

    Click here to see the Conference video, and be sure to turn your volume up!

    My very best wishes for a happy and healthy 2020!
