Wish the ACFE a Happy Birthday

As we continue to celebrate the ACFE’s 25th anniversary, and look ahead towards the ACFE’s 25th Annual Global Fraud Conference, we have been thinking of ways to celebrate with members worldwide. We would like to invite all of the ACFE chapters to create a short video of congratulations from an outside location featuring ACFE members saying "Congratulations" or "Happy Birthday" to the ACFE. We would like to compile these videos, and post them on ACFE.com and share on social media beginning next year.

To give you an idea of what we are looking for, here are a couple of sample videos from the San Antonio, Texas, Chapter and the Singapore Chapter:

As you can see, you can record something on your phone or you can use a professional video crew; either option is welcomed and appreciated. Also, you can make your message as long or as short as you want. You can say one sentence or a few sentences expressing your sentiment. Below are a few script options:

  • Script 1: "Happy 25th anniversary from the [insert chapter name]!"
  • Script 2: "The [insert chapter name] would like to wish the ACFE a very happy 25th anniversary. Congratulations!"
  • Script 3: Individual: "Hi, I'm [insert name and title] at [insert company name]. I am also proud to serve as [insert chapter title] of the [insert chapter name]. From [insert city/country], we would like to wish the ACFE a very happy 25th birthday!" Group: "Congratulations, ACFE!"

The one request we do have is that you choose an outside location that truly embodies your chapter, your city and/or your country. This will help us show all of our members and fraud fighters that the ACFE is made up of professionals from all over the world.

You can send your completed video to me at MMoody@ACFE.com or through an online sharing site like Dropbox.com. I look forward to working with you to celebrate 25 years of success at the ACFE! Please don’t hesitate to ask for help or assistance.
