She most recently served on the IIA’s North America Board of Directors and served as the Chair of the IIA’s Chapter Relations Committee, supporting officers, boards of governors and members of the IIA’s North American chapters. Her past volunteer roles include Academic Relations Chair and Chapter President of the Orange County (CA) chapter, as well as co-chair of the IIA’s Western Regional Conference (Disneyland, 2002). Vicki has served as District Representative and District Advisor for Southern California IIA Chapters and those in the 11 western states. Vicki has also served on IIA task forces and special project teams over two decades, and was the IIA Orange County (CA) Chapter Auditor of the Year in 1995 & 2003.

william-j-mulachy.jpgWilliam J. Mulcahy – A longtime chapter leader and internal audit advocate, Bill Mulcahy was inducted posthumously. Often called “an auditing oracle,” Bill had an unparalleled breadth and depth of understanding of the profession. He left a legacy of increased value wherever he was involved. A longtime IIA volunteer and chapter leader, Bill contributed to the profession over a career spanning nearly five decades. As namesake and recipient of IIA Atlanta’s most prestigious honor, he helped shape the internal audit community in the Atlanta area, supporting the profession of chief audit executive, encouraging students toward a rewarding career in internal auditing, and enabling practitioners to expand their horizons. In recent years, he was also at the forefront of efforts to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive profession. His impact was far-reaching, and his legacy of innovation and passion — particularly his support for the next generation of internal auditors — will continue to define volunteerism with The IIA and advocacy for the profession long into the future.
