Well…what a great year this has been, even as we continued to manage through Covid!! Our core purpose at the Chapter is to advance the fraud prevention, detection, deterrence, and investigation profession, primarily by providing CPE Training that is affordable, high quality, and wherever possible, Canadian-based.
We held a very successful in-person Networking Event in early September outside on the patio at the Amsterdam Barrel House in the Toronto Leaside neighborhood. We are hoping to make this an annual event, and look forward to even more CFEs joining us next year!
During the 2022 Training Year, we delivered 32 hours of CPE training at an average cost of $16 per CPE for Chapter Members, and $20 per CPE for Non-Chapter Members. So, CFEs who are members of the GTA Chapter (at $75 a year) saved $131 in CPE costs – almost double their money back!!
For CFEs who cannot attend training on the days scheduled, we introduced the Chapter’s e-Learning Catalog in 2020 and it expands every year as we continue to add more courses. The Catalog has now been reorganized into Topics making it easier for CFEs to find a suitable course while earning their CPE credits at their own pace and on their own schedule at a very reasonable cost.
CPE Training 2023 Schedule
We have now prepared our CPE Training Calendar for 2023. While you will continue to receive timely email announcements throughout the year, why not mark the dates on your calendar and register today! REGISTRATION is OPEN for all events.
In keeping with the wishes of a significant majority of attendees, most of our training will continue to be virtual through Zoom next year. However, our September Workshop will be a one-day “hybrid” event with Keith Elliott of Reed Research. It will be streamed live through Zoom and held at BMO-IFL Conference Centre, which includes free parking and their world-famous lunch buffet! We envision a greater number of hybrid events in 2024.
Thanks for all Your Support
In closing, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all members of our volunteer Board of Directors for their contributions over the past year. We have a strong and dedicated team working to continue the proud heritage of the GTA Chapter.
However, our efforts are only successful and meaningful when we have an engaged and committed community of CFEs. The Board is grateful for your continued support of the Chapter and dedication to our profession. We look forward to seeing everyone at our CPE and Networking events in 2023!
Warm wishes,Dorian Dwyer
President & Chief Executive Officer
