NEFF – Membership Renewal 2019/20 and Application
The NEFF is aiming to continue the success of the past years by delivering a service that is complimentary to the needs of our members.

We are actively involved with our regional law enforcement and together with a wide range of national / government bodies we aim to help raise awareness of the latest developments in fraud, financial crime and cybercrime for the benefit of our members in the Region.

The NEFF will continue to deliver a range of unique and varied events over the next membership year, and will as usual, attempt to tailor them to the needs of our members. To support us in achieving that goal, we are very interested in understanding the problems that are affecting you and your business in the Region and would like to hear from you regarding ideas for these events.
