The VALBEC committee would like to extend thanks to all our members for their support throughout the year and to the ACFE board for their ongoing support. It has been a big year with highlights being the publication of A Fuller Sense of Self and the successful ACAL conference, both in September. We wish you all a safe and happy festive season and look forward to working with you in 2012.
The annual VALBEC Planning meeting will be held mid January, 2011.
We welcome feedback and ideas so please send to email@example.com
