CIPFA extends membership to counter-fraud professionals

10 Jul 15

Counter-fraud professionals can for the first time join a chartered institute after CIPFA announced that its membership would be extended to include accredited counter-fraud practitioners.

The announcement, made at CIPFA’s annual conference yesterday, represents a key step in formal recognition of counter fraud as a specialist profession in its own right, Rachael Tiffen, head of Counter Fraud Centre and Governance at CIPFA, said.

“As part of our commitment to building and supporting the counter fraud profession, I’m pleased to reveal that we will be taking a significant step forward by extending our membership offering to accredited counter fraud practitioners as the professional institute for counter fraud.

“They will be welcome as affiliate members of CIPFA, gaining the professional standing, kudos and ongoing support that their specialist field so richly deserves.”

As well as being welcomed as part of the CIPFA family, affiliate members have access to a wide variety of benefits, offers, training and qualifications, publications, events, and information services. For further information visit the CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre’s web area.
