Let’s Celebrate! May is International Internal Audit Awareness MonthIA Awareness Month

International Internal Audit Awareness Month helps build awareness for the internal audit profession and the value internal auditors bring to their organizations. We’re all in it together. Successful chapter campaigns elevate the profession and serve as models for other chapters — even other countries — to emulate.

You are invited to play an important role in the upcoming Awareness Month celebration! Whether you focus on helping your members broaden internal audit awareness within their organizations, or join forces with other chapters to spur a statewide promotion, you can make a difference on behalf of the profession. Not only will this enhance the public image of your chapter and how it serves the profession, but it also will fill your members with personal pride in their chosen career.

Plus, did you know your chapter can earn Chapter Achievement Program (CAP) points by organizing an Awareness Month campaign? Click here for more information. 

The things you can do to build awareness are limited only by your chapter’s collective creativity and imagination. Start preparing now for this year’s International Internal Audit Awareness Month, and help raise awareness about our beloved profession. You can start by reviewing The IIA’s Building Awareness toolkit.

We encourage you to follow The IIA on Facebook www.facebook.com/TheInstituteofInternalAuditors and post photos of your chapter and individual Awareness Month activities. Also email your photos and let us know about your activities at PR@theiia.org.

Have fun this May in promoting the profession. The more people you get involved, the more you can accomplish!

IIA Partners With Jamaica and World Bank to Offer Risk Based Audit Training in Jamaica

IIA Global Chairman of the Board Paul Sobel, CIA, CRMA, traveled to Kingston, Jamaica, in January to lend support for the World Bank’s Risk-Based Audit Training Pilot Program. This program was a collaborative effort between the World Bank, United Nations (UN), and The IIA to help kick off the World Bank’s initiative to strengthen public sector internal auditing in the Caribbean.

Sobel and the United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services, Carman Lapointe, CIA, CCSA, a former Chair of the Board of The IIA, addressed an audience of more than 80 permanent secretaries, course participants, senior officers, and others at the evening’s formal kick-off event on Jan. 21.

“On behalf of IIA Global, I am honored that I could be a part of this important initiative,” said Sobel. “The IIA is proud to partner with the World Bank to help strengthen public sector internal auditing through this pilot program, and we look forward to future collaboration opportunities.”

As part of the program, The IIA’s Learning Solutions team conducted two of the scheduled 10 days of training for 30 internal audit and finance professionals in the public sector. In addition volunteer instructor Teresa Snedigar, CIA, CCSA, Director of Internal Audit for the Indiana Public Retirement System, remained onsite for an additional three days to help participants develop an audit plan focusing on risk criteria.

IIA Canada’s 7th Annual National Conference

In a time of rapid change, where trust in corporate and public leadership is faltering and new and complex risks are emerging, internal audit can add exceptional value. But are we ready? Do we have what it takes — in terms of leadership, governance, practices, and personal courage — to step up and into this role?

The theme of the 7th Annual National Conference of IIA Canada is Rising to New Challenges. As the premier learning and networking event dedicated to internal audit, risk, control and governance, this event draws speakers at the forefront of our profession.

Rick Hillier, former Chief of the Defence Staff of the Canadian Forces and Commander of NATO Troops in Afghanistan, will speak about leadership under pressure. Richard Chambers, CIA, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, President and CEO of The IIA, will speak about the future of the internal audit profession, and Carman Lapointe, CIA, CCSA, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Internal Oversight Services, will speak about internal audit and oversight in a complex political environment.

Respected audit leaders will lead general and concurrent sessions that focus on:

  • Strategically positioning the Internal Audit Function
  • Enhancing Internal Audit Effectiveness
  • Information Management / Technology
  • A Fresh Look at Value Ethics and Fraud
  • Auditing in the Public Sector
  • The Modern Auditor: Leader and Agent of Change
