4. To promote growth and demand for financial forensics services by raising the level of awareness of the CFF credential and the CPA’s, or recognized equivalent, role in financial forensics within the CPA community, approved member associations, and the public.
This year, the CFF Credential Committee aims to reach important milestones especially with respect to:
• The new global CFF pathway
• The new experienced CFF pathway
• Continued growth with global university affiliations
• Continued growth with CFF candidate relations and support, and
