With CWFIA membership, you join a much larger community.  You join a community that not only shares thoughts and concerns regarding the importance of program integrity in public assistance programs, but one that takes action.  A community that believes that in networking, sharing information, education and hard work, we can make a difference in the battle against Welfare Fraud.

As an additional benefit of membership, you will gain access to our “Members Only” section of this website where you will find information and updates on important legislation, a Special Investigations Unit Directory (by county and/or state department in California), job announcements, CWFIA Bylaws, access to the CWFIA Member’s Forum to network and communicate with other members, training opportunities, and access to the CWFIA Intercom newsletter.

Membership also includes a special discounted rate on our annual conference registration fees.
