Last Friday, our sixth annual fraud conference took place at the Union Club of BC. This year we had Linda Murray of the Law Society of BC; Andrew Cowan of RCMP; Dr. John Yuille of the Forensic Alliance; Steven Johnston of Alberta Justice; and Colin Cree of e-Forensic Services Inc. for this event. It was a productive for the event organizer and participants alike, I concluded. Our venue was filled up to its capacity!
I was comparing the first fraud conference we did in 2008 when we had it as a 2-day event with 10 speakers and 77 participants with all hard-copy materials provided. We become much more careful for budgeting (pricing), greener (no more paper material distribution), and experienced in term of event organization. I had been always a great event for the chapter and it was again on that day.
We are working with Dr. John to tailor an investigation workshop which we plan to deliver some time in the first quarter in 2014. We hope it will attract many participants.
Fraud is everywhere. Love it or not. We would rather be aware, at least.
