What does a meeting look like?

Are you dealing with a tricky case? Do you have questions about filing? Or do you have insights to share with your sector and Cifas?

Our Working Party meetings give you an opportunity to discuss a range of subjects with peers from your sector and your Relationship Manager. Each meeting is a round-table discussion for you to share and hear intelligence on current and emerging fraud trends. We also organise talks from relevant experts or organisations.
