Last month we made mention of the ACFI conference committee and wish to, once again, applaud their efforts in dealing with the needs and wants of this year's speakers and delegates.


For members seeking to learn more about the ACFI, obtain CPDs or give back to the community, consider joining an ACFI committee. Simply contact the office and give Luisa your contact information and the type of committee in which you might be interested.


A strong Board is important for any group and in this regard the ACFI is no different. Members are encouraged to consider being nominated and subsequently standing for election in order to become an ACFI Board member. Nomination forms will be sent out to members by year-end. Elections are planned for March 2016 with the results being disclosed during the May 2016 conference.
