The Houston ACFE is happy to partner with Audimation Services to host our first in person luncheon in a while!!
Speaker: Galina Seliounina Guidry, CFE
Title: "What Makes A Successful Anti-Bribery and Anti-Corruption Audit?"
Description: "Your company’s Audit Plan may entail an Anti-Corruption Audit (“ABC”) – but what does it mean? Auditors are routinely asked to conduct an ABC review; whether it is due to a high-risk location or being involved with a high-risk vendor. A good quality ABC review may mean the difference between a bribery being caught early, instead of having the Department of Justice, or the Securities and Exchange Commission knocking on your company’s door. In this session, we will explore steps auditors can utilize to perform audits of internal business units, third parties and/or business partners."

In the event the Chapter determines that partial charges or refunds will be allowed, they will be made on a case by case basis.
In the event of having to cancel one of the events, the Chapter would immediately send an email blast to all registrants with the emails they used for registration. The Chapter media relations officer would post on all social media platforms notifying members of the cancellation, and the Chapter webmaster would also post cancellation on the Chapter website.
