President’s Message – March 2017

April Special Monthly Meeting – The AZ Chapter will host the “The Reid Technique of Interviewing and Interrogation” at the Arizona State University SkySong facility. This all day course will provide members with 8 CPE credits, and be taught by Joseph P. Buckley III, who is a forensic interviewer, detection of deception examiner, lecturer and consultant. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Chapter members will be charged $125, and non-members $175. A fantastic price and opportunity to also network with your Chapter members. Please try to attend this event, and tell your non-member colleagues about this great training opportunity.

May 16, 2017 Monthly Meeting – “You Have Been Hacked – The Forensic Response” presented by Robert Meshinsky, WGM Information Security Services LLC. This presentation will discuss how hackers gain entry into your computer system/network, and what evidence is left behind to provide the forensic examiner with clues to help solve the case. The presentation will also present techniques to preserve evidence obtained from original program information.

Per our recent Chapter email update, we are now accepting your registrations for the national ACFE conference in Nashville, June 18-23, 2017. Members of the ACFE Arizona Chapter (all categories including affiliates) can take advantage of the group registration discount. The Chapter will submit all registrations and you will be billed separately by the national organization. To receive the group discount, you must submit your registration form by April 10, 2017. Please see the Chapter website for additional details.

In addition, this event is eligible for a Chapter grant to be used to help cover registration costs (due April 10, 2017). Please see the Chapter website for additional details. Our Chapter is committed to providing financial assistance to our membership for continuing education and professional development efforts. The intent of the Grant is to assist our members with their individual out-of-pocket expenses, not to replace entity funding (no reimbursement will be made to any public agency or private company). Completed application packets and questions should be emailed to:

The Arizona Chapter is also pleased to offer a CFE Exam Completion Incentive Grant to Chapter members who have successfully completed and passed the CFE exam. The reimbursement will allow a newly certified CFE the opportunity to be reimbursed for a portion ($500) of the prep course and exam fee. Applications will be accepted through December 30, 2017. Please see the Chapter website for additional details.

Finally, the AZ Chapter will soon be transitioning off several Board positions. (Treasurer and three Director positions, including the Chapter newsletter editor and training director positions). Further details will be provided in the coming month. The Board will facilitate this transition by reaching out to Chapter members asking them to consider running for a Board position. As you all know, the success of our Chapter relies, in part, on the commitment, experience and skill sets of our Board membership. Please consider running for a Board position, and feel free to contact myself or any other Board member with any questions.

AZ Chapter ACFE Membershipfees range from $35 to $55 annually (for CFEs and non-CFEs, respectively) and include 8 regular, one-hour accredited presentations and special seasonal multi-hour accredited events at an additional nominal fee, and which are all NASBA certified. Please tell your friends and co-workers about us and ask them to consider joining our Chapter.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing you at future Chapter events.


James H. Tendick, CFE
