Welcome to the new and improved version of the Detroit Chapter Website. The new site is optimized for use on both computers and mobile devices. As you navigate through the site, you’ll notice that everything you need is much easier to find. If you have any comments or questions, please email us at: Chapter2@iiachapters.org.
If you are responsible for your company's internal auditing, information systems security and integrity, accounting, finance, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance or other regulatory matters, or simply need continuing education, you will want to join us for the 24th annual Detroit Spring Conference event.
The Detroit Chapters of The IIA and ISACA are proud to co-sponsor the annual Spring Conference Event. Our goal is to provide a world-class training event tailored to your needs. Each year, the Spring Conference Committee offers a comprehensive series of course offerings for our members and guests. The 2023 event is no exception.
A number of classes sell out each year so register early. Don't miss this opportunity to network with your peers, enhance your skills, and learn about new products and services in the marketplace!
Class size is limited. To be fair and equitable to all, we operate on a first-come first-serve basis, and maintain a wait list for all sold out courses. Registrants are required to attend the course(s) for which they registered unless they receive prior written approval from the Spring Conference Chairperson. Registrants attending unauthorized classes will not be awarded continuing education credits.
For all in-person courses at the Suburban Showplace in Novi, we will be following the most current CDC guidelines as they relate to COVID-19. We want to be sure everyone has a comfortable learning environment, all personal precautions (i.e., wearing masks, etc.) are welcomed and respected.

Hello IIA Chapter Members (and future members)!
As the President of the Detroit Chapter for the 2022-2023 Chapter Year, I am excited to lead our talented team in the continuing service to our members. I am an Audit Manager at General Motors and have volunteered with the Detroit Chapter for many years. Despite the significant global challenges over the last several years, the IIA and the Detroit Chapter have remained resilient and delivered value to our members. In the prior year, the Detroit Chapter continued service to its members for the 79th year while maintaining more than 1,000 members from over 100 companies/organizations across Southeast Michigan. The Chapter provided diverse programming through monthly meetings, webinars, and an annual Spring Conference to enhance the professional education and learning for our members. Additionally, the Chapter reached out to Colleges/Universities to promote the internal audit profession, awarded scholarships to two students, presented a Rock Star of the Month recognition to a local auditor, and achieved a “Sapphire” Chapter Achievement status (25 years of gold status chapter health). Great job and thank you to the Chapter Officers and Board members in the prior year! Their volunteer efforts and service to the Chapter are greatly appreciated.
We look forward to another great year including continuing to provide excellent programs and CIA certification support. Additionally, the Chapter will reach out to local Colleges/Universities to increase awareness of the internal audit profession. In driving these and other Chapter objectives for the 2022-2023 year, the Chapter will remain agile and adaptable as the business environment continues to change. This includes utilizing technology and embracing innovation to provide value to chapter members. Buckle Up! (ok, I work in the Auto industry), it is going be an exciting year for the Chapter!
