    Fraud at the Museum: Protecting Your Organization from a Devastating Event is an AASLH Continuing Education recorded webinar. This webinar is about the ways fraud is most often committed and then discovered. This event is presented by Kelly Paxton. Nonprofit organizations are second only to the banking and financial sectors in the occurrence of fraud, according to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. Perhaps you have heard or read about a museum or other nonprofit in your area that suffered financial theft by an employee, volunteer or board member. Or perhaps your organization has been the unfortunate victim of fraud like AASLH was in 2011. While fraud has always been around, it has, in recent years, become all too common at history museums and related organizations.  Financial fraud can happen to any size history organization from the very large to the smallest of small. But it’s only after they become a victim that the vast majority of organizations take steps to protect themselves against fraud. In this webinar, guest speaker Kelly Paxton discusses the ways fraud is most often committed and then discovered. She offers recommendations for policies and procedures that can not only prevent a devastating financial loss, but protect staff and board members as well. Join us for this interesting and informative webinar that will help your organization avoid becoming another fraud statistic.
