FIFEC is a not for profit educational entity whose mission is to provide high quality educational training opportunities at the lowest cost possible. FIFEC offers a limited number of conference grants available to law enforcement, government investigators, prosecutors who are engaged in the fight against insurance fraud. Grant applications are no longer being accepted for the conference.
We love hearing from professionals in the insurance fraud prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution disciplines. Working collectively to share and learn is the key to winning the fight against insurance fraud. If appropriate, we ask potential conference speakers to consider including a Special Investigation Unit representative as a co-presenter. Please check back in October 2022 for opportunities to speak at our 2023 conference.
