Welcome to the IIA Los Angeles Chapter
In September 1943, a group of 25 internal auditors from the Los Angeles area signed the charter which established the Los Angeles Chapter as a non-profit organization. The group wanted to establish an organization that would live up to the IIA's belief in "Progress Though Sharing." They felt this purpose could be accomplished by offering members affordable education seminars, professional meetings and a place to connect and interact with other colleagues. Today, these elements are still at the heart of Los Angeles Chapter’s strategic goals.
The Los Angeles Chapter is the 4th oldest chapter (Chapter #004) in existence and is one of eight IIA chapters that make up IIA West District #3. The Los Angeles Chapter has more than 700 members and continues to be an integral resource for Greater Los Angeles internal audit community. Members are composed primarily of the following industries: government, banking, financial services, healthcare, education, entertainment, and consulting and professional services.
The Los Angeles Chapter serves its members by advocating on behalf of the internal audit profession, providing an annual 2.5-day conference offering up to 20 CPEs, as well as monthly CPE education and training events typically held on the second Wednesday of every month. We also host Quarterly CAE Roundtables for the local Los Angeles Chief Audit Executives.

We are pleased to be a 2023 Building Awareness Champion!
During Internal Audit Awareness Month in May, we shared our passion for internal auditing, promoting the profession through a variety of events and campaigns designed to inform and engage, raise awareness, and help stakeholders understand the value of internal audit in their organizations.
The IIA Los Angeles Chapter recently held our first event of the season – our Chapter’s Annual Conference event – the annual IIA Los Angeles Conference. This year’s theme was “Transform, Transcend, and Renew,” which was carefully selected to demonstrate the importance of the Internal Audit Profession as a catalyst for many organizations to make pivotal changes for strategic success, governance, risk management, and internal control best practices.
Please contact if you have interest in volunteering as Chapter Leader, Seminar Speaker, or Conference speaker.
In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Nelson Mandela.
"There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return."
