President’s Message – May 2018

Per our recent website announcement to Chapter members, the AZ Chapter will soon be transitioning off the majority of our Board positions. (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer and three Director positions). The position descriptions and minimum requirements are posted in the announcement. All positions are two year terms.

Nominations will be accepted through midnight on Friday, June 1, 2018. Ballots will be distributed to members no later than June 15, 2018, and voting will be open until midnight on July 15, 2018. All CFE and Associate members who are in good standing (current on their Chapter dues) as of June, 8, 2018 are eligible to vote.

The Board of Directors meets approximately once every other month. Board member time commitments range from less than one hour per week on average, up to several hours per week for the more time-intensive duties. Board members assist in procuring guest speakers, running Chapter events, and managing all administrative tasks of the Chapter (budgeting, membership, recruiting, newsletter, web management, CPE and attendance records, etc.). All directors and officers are expected to fulfill their commitments to the Arizona Chapter in a professional and timely manner throughout the entire year.

In return, active Board members pay no Chapter dues, and have the opportunity to attend local and national training events for free. Serving on the Board is a wonderful way to network, enhance your resume and also give back to the anti-fraud profession.

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 questions. Please also take the time to cast your vote once the ballot is posted.

The Board will issue an announcement of the election results and corresponding Board transition soon after the election.

A quick note. We just held our last training event for the spring season on May 15th. We will re-start our third Tuesday of the month one hour training sessions in September after the summer break.

Please continue to encourage any qualified colleagues to consider joining the AZ Chapter. Our Membership fees 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.

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


James H. Tendick, CFE

President – Arizona Chapter
