Volunteer for 2019-20 Board

The ACFE Rhode Island Chapter is 100% run by volunteers. Without you, the programs and low-cost CPE credits you enjoy cannot continue.

The Elections and Nominating Committee is currently seeking volunteers for the offices of: Vice President**, Treasurer, and Training Director**. There are also two directors seats available. While existing directors and officers are able to apply for these positions, we really need your support as a member!

The ACFE Rhode Island Chapter Board of Directors will provide training and support on the technology used, so no experience is necessary. In August, there will be a half-day strategic planning meeting to get to know other directors and look for ways to enhance the chapter activities and membership experience. The board meets by teleconference monthly for 45 minutes and the commitment is typically less than three hours per month.

Whether you are an experienced professional, or just getting started, serving as an officer or director of your local ACFE chapter is a great way to demonstrate your leadership, build your professional network, learn new skills, and advance your career.

If interested, please email Jared B. Wilbur at moc.tsurthsawnull@rubliwbj or Evan Lemoine at gro.efcirnull@tnediserp for details. Elections will occur in July, and terms begin August 1, 2019.

** Only CFE’s are able to be elected to the office of training director. While not required, a CFE is preferred for the office of vice president. All other offices do not have such a requirement.
