The IIA’s Chief Audit Executive (CAE) Services team is excited to announce its participation in the Chapter Achievement Program (CAP) forthe 2012-2013 Chapter year. Added to the “Service to the Profession” section of CAP, chapters can now earn points for efforts in recruiting and retaining CAEs, contributing thought leadership to the Audit Executive Center, recommending authors, hosting CAE roundtables, scribing notes and submitting them to CAE Services, and more. Detailed information on each activity is available in the CAP Point Descriptions matrix located under the CAP Management section of the Chapter Leader Resources web pages.

In addition, CAE Services hosted six chapter focus groups in May to learn how it can better meet the needs of chapters in their recruitment and retention of chief audit executives. We compiled the suggestions from the focus groups to assist in the development of the Chapter CAE Toolkit, which includes invitation templates, letter/email templates, recruitment and retention ideas, website tile ads, PowerPoint presentations, printed collateral, and more. You can find the CAE Toolkit under Communication Tools in the Chapter Leader section of The IIA’s website .

If you are looking for a tool that is not provided in the toolkit, please contact us at cae@theiia.org.

Furthermore, IIA Global Headquarters leadership is pleased to announce its new director, George Lewis. George has more than 15 years of internal audit and risk management experience, most recently in the role of director, enterprise risk management (ERM) for Best Buy Corporation, where he led an ERM initiative for the $50 billion, multi-channel global retailer that yielded significant improvements in board risk oversight and management effectiveness. George also has previous internal audit experience and has a passion for the internal audit profession. He looks forward to meeting chapter leaders during his travels. He can be reached at George.Lewis@theiia.org.

George and the entire CAE Services team look forward to supporting your CAE initiatives in the 2012-2013 Chapter year.
