It’s hard to imagine, but it has been 70 years since the Oklahoma City Chapter of the Institute of Internal Auditors, Inc. was established. On September 1, 1949 an initial group of 18 internal audit professionals founded the local chapter, passed the by-laws and elected the original officers and one governor. They also determined that chapter meetings would be held on the first Thursday evening of each month.
The original 1949 members were:
During the last 70 years, we’ve grown to an all-time high of 355 members, representing 102 organizations. We provide a wide range of opportunities for professional development and communication, such as Chapter sponsored lunch meetings and seminars, monthly newsletters, and a directory of Chapter members and events. We are committed to adding value to our members, member organizations, Chief Audit Executives (CAEs) and profession. As such, we are currently attempting to expand the scope of our outreach and communication efforts (e.g., website development, CAE Roundtables, etc.). Please bear with us during these ongoing efforts.
Our principal mission is to:
The Chapter supports this mission by:
Offering 9 monthly one-hour CPE luncheon each month (September through May).
Offering 2 seminars (Fall and Spring ) worth 16 to 24 CPE hours each.
The IIA's CIA Learning System (valued at $1,000) will be awarded to one (1) IIA member or student who is pursuing the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) designation. For CIA exam information, please visit https://www.theiia.org/en/certifications/cia/.

IIA Oklahoma City Chapter Members,
As the 2023/2024 chapter year is on the horizon, I want to thank everyone who participated in our chapter activities last year! A few of our officers from the 2022/2023 season have elected to resign after many years and we want to thank them for their hard work and dedication to the chapter. We are excited about what lies ahead and have a committed group of officers to help position our chapter for success!
Please help me welcome the following volunteer officers for 2023/2024:
The IIA OKC Chapter is dedicated to providing professional education and support to its members in a safe and productive environment. As we schedule events for the upcoming year, we are planning on having a mix of in-person and online meetings. We want to ensure there is a variety of available options so our members have access to an assortment of learning and development opportunities.
My goal for the upcoming year is to increase camaraderie, networking, and knowledge amongst our chapter members as we all pursue improvement and value creation in our field. Please feel free to reach out to me or any chapter officers with suggestions or ideas. I look forward to better getting to know all of you this year.
President, IIA OKC Chapter
