Chapter News and Events

Hello Everyone,

The Beach Cities Chapter wrapped up its Chapter Year on May 31, 2021. This was the first year where all of our CPE events were conducted remotely, many in conjunction with other chapters. Thanks to those of you who were able to attend one or more of these sessions; this listing summarizes those events: ​

Date Chapter Event
10-6-20 IIA-Inland Empire Emotional Intelligence for Auditors (Janines Burlingame), 2 hrs
11-19-20  IIA-SGV  CAE Roundtable and COVID Challenges, 1 hr

Due to circumstances beyond our control related to the pandemic and associated health and safety protocols, we were unable to conduct our Student Night and One-Day Professional Seminar. Nevertheless, the Chapter remains on solid financial footing. Opportunities to volunteer with us are also available; reach out to Chapter President Jim Olds at for more information. The chapter leadership team is looking forward to providing new CPE opportunities in the coming months.

We recognize that some members prefer in-person events while others prefer remote meetings. As the 2021-22 chapter year unfolds, look for new CPE events to be scheduled as time and resources allow. These events may include additional joint sessions with other IIA Chapters.

Stay safe and resilient, and we look forward to meeting with you in the months ahead.
