Description

Chicago Metro Chapter of the IGFOA Presents:
The 2016 Fraud Awareness Seminar – Be Proactive, Not Reactive in the Fight Against Fraud in Your Organization
It seems you can’t turn on the news these days without hearing about another incident of fraudulent activity.  Increasingly these stories are related to local governments in Illinois.  In fact over 250 local governmental entities in Illinois were victims of significant fraudulent activity in the last two years alone.  Is your organization next?  Is your organization prepared?  As a Finance Director are you going to be proactive in preventing fraud or reactive when it happens to you?  This seminar will help you gain an understanding on the prevalence of fraud, understand the human actions that are behind every fraud, learn from the example of Dixon Illinois and finally how to begin implementing an annual fraud risk assessment program.   

Intended Audience: All Finance Professionals
