The Nashville chapter chartered on May 9, 1975, and achieved Ruby Status in 2018. The Nashville Chapter serves Nashville and surrounding areas and is home to approximately 500 members. Our members represent a variety of industries including banking, healthcare, government, education, consulting, retail, and manufacturing. In order to help our members continue to enhance their skillset within the Internal Audit profession, our Chapter provides professional development, roundtables, and networking events. The Chapter advocates and supports the profession through academic engagement and scholarship programs.

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.
Nashville Chapter Members,
I am extremely honored and delighted to serve as your President for the 2022-2023 Chapter year. The Chapter is fortunate to have such a strong, remarkable, and devoted team of people serving them this year: Beth-Ann Martorello (President Elect); Sithandale Ntuka (VP), John Murphy (Treasurer), William Neal (Asst. Treasurer), Kimberly Smith (Secretary), Irina Allen (Program Officer), Thad DelConte (Certification Officer) and Tony Faulk (Membership Officer) in addition to our new and returning Board of Governors.
I would also like to thank Erica Smith, our outgoing President, and her team for their tremendous leadership and guidance over the past year! This year’s Officers and Board Members are dedicated to improving upon and keeping the positive energy, momentum, and success of the Chapter moving forward.
One of our goals this year is to focus on volunteerism and inspire members to contribute their talent, at whatever level suits their schedule. As the Nashville Chapter continues to grow, we strive to offer a variety of opportunities for education, networking, student engagement and continuous development such as: Lunch & Learns, the Annual Symposium, CAE Roundtables, Student Scholarships, Social Events, and many others. These events are only possible as a direct result of the time, effort, and support provided by those who volunteer to serve their professional colleagues in order to build and elevate the internal audit professional community in the Nashville area.
There are many ways to get involved, if interested, please contact us through our website or email firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope you are as excited as I am to participate in another great year with the Nashville Chapter!
Rebecca Nilson, President IIA Nashville Chapter.
