Welcome to a new chapter year!!! I am delighted to serve as your chapter president as we continue to evolve through this time of change. I am the Audit Quality Assurance Manager at Wayne State University Office of Internal Audit. I have volunteered with the Detroit IIA for many years, have been recognized as a Rock Star of the Month and previously served on the board as the Membership Chair. It is a great time to be involved with the IIA! Managing our personal and professional lives through a pandemic has proven to be challenging in many areas. Throughout this time, we have demonstrated our unique qualities, strength, perseverance and resilience through these unchartered times. We have discovered new ways to serve, communicate, and even celebrate with our families, friends, peers, and colleagues. We have even broadened our reach by offering virtual programming and methods of communicating. However, when we talk about change, we have merely penetrated the surface. Our board members are volunteers and continue to work hard to prepare for this chapter year. I want to thank each of them for their service and commitment to The IIA Detroit Chapter. I also would like to extend thanks to all of our IIA Detroit Chapter membership. Your participation in our webinars, training, monthly meetings and annual spring conference has helped our chapter continue to thrive.
Last year, our IIA Detroit Chapter Board did an amazing job in providing value-added programming, webinars, scholarships, awards, certification recognition, annual spring conference, training, and advocacy. Thank you to our long-time past Detroit Chapter board members, Christine Dobrovich, Dr. Bob Okopny and Erin Erickson, who each served for 10 years or more. We appreciate your time and service. We are excited for another great year ahead and look forward to providing you with resources, events and more opportunities to get involved and stay connected! This year, we will continue to be forward driven and build on our rich history as a chapter of excellence! We began our chapter year with recognition from The IIA CEO as a building awareness champion. Receipt of this recognition further solidifies The IIA Detroit Chapter as a Chapter of Excellence. Let us continue to strengthen, shape, grow and develop the future of the IIA.
