"It's a true honor for Dr. Brody to be nominated as a candidate for election to the ACFE Board of Regents," says Dr. Craig White, Chair of the UNM Anderson Accounting Department. "The Board sets the direction for the more than 65,000 world-wide member organization that plays a leading role in efforts to prevent, detect, and deter fraud. All New Mexico Certified Fraud Examiners are eligible to vote. We encourage them to cast their vote and give our state a strong voice in efforts to combat fraud - an issue that affects too many New Mexicans."
