The Association of Corporate Investigators (ACi) has approved the Corporate Research and Investigations (CRI Group™) as a member of its global community of investigators.

CRI™ is now part of a global community that exclusively champions the role of investigators. Our membership connects the CRI® team to colleagues across the globe and provides access to an abundance of events (live and on-demand), education and resources. ACi also offers vast scope for enriching our profile and contributing our voice through speaking at events, authoring articles or taking the lead in a region or sub-region.

The role of corporate investigators and those who support them have never been of such significance. With this membership CRI® Group will be able to share thought leadership, cross-industry insights,  increase our networking opportunities and centralised resources. 

ACi was Born to Address the Needs of Corporate Investigators

The ACi is a global not-for-profit association founded by corporate investigators to meet the needs of the corporate investigation community in its widest sense, from entrants to seasoned professionals, across all sectors. Investigations are recognised as part of corporate DNA. The global investigations community, and all its related service and technology specialists, is estimated to exceed 500,000 people.

ACi association exists to serve and to build this growing community, actively promoting diversity, equity and inclusion as central to our member-led mission. ACi are developing the gold standard in corporate investigations training, drawing from leading industry experts in our community.

ACi brings together investigators who work internally and externally, in the private and public sectors, NGOs, and not for profits, united in our pursuit for professional excellence in corporate investigations.
