Welcome to our chapter website!

The Greater Kansas City Chapter was organized in February 1994 when twenty Kansas City area CFE's petitioned the Association for recognition of local chapter status.  In May 1994 the Association officially recognized the organization as a chapter.

Since its first year of existence, the Chapter has grown to include over 100 active members representing both government and private industry.  All members are actively involved in the detection, investigation, prosecution and/or deterrence of fraud, particularly white-collar crime.

The Kansas City Chapter conducts approximately 20 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) on a variety of anti-fraud topics each year at area facilities.  The workshops generally range from 4 to 8 CPE per session.

The CFE Program

The Certified Fraud Examiner program is an accrediting process for individuals who possess the specialized skills required to detect, investigate and deter fraud. Typical Members include fraud examiners, auditors, investigators, forensic accountants, loss prevention and security directors, law enforcement personnel, criminologists, academia and researchers in the area of white-collar crime.

Established in 1988, the program is administered by Association of Certified Fraud Examiners headquartered in Austin, Texas. The Association is chartered as a private corporation whose standards for admission are set by a Board of Regents, an independent body.
