President’s Message


Dear Orange County Chapter Members,


Happy Holidays, Auditors!!  Here we are in December, and as we wind down the calendar year, we close out our programs with yet another successful luncheon.  We welcomed Lester Sussman and David Matthews, Senior Practice Directors at RGP who presented on Robotic Process Automation. As we enter the new year, our Programs volunteers, Nicole and Steven Vengrow, will continue to recruit high quality speakers for our lunch events.  If you have any training suggestions, are interested in speaking, or would like to assist our volunteers with marketing and registration, please reach out to Steven Vengrow or Nicole Ungaro
Also coming up is the March 15-16, 2018 joint conference event.  This event is hosted by the Orange County chapters of the IIA, the ACFE, and ISACA.  Currently, we would like to thank Concordia University, Ernst and Young, and Clifton Larson Allen for sponsoring this event.  There will also be a CAE Roundtable to kick off the conference.  Please save the date and plan to attend. If you are interested in sponsoring the event or volunteering for the planning committee, contact Yuliya Poutkaradze at
We are approaching the time where we nominate new officers to the IIA Orange County chapter Board. I would like to thank our Nominations Committee for working diligently to recruit volunteers to help our chapter.  If you are interested in volunteering for our chapter, or would like more information about how to get involved, please reach out to our Nominations Committee:  Jason James; Chip Clark; and David Pepper 
Also, we know that our members are doing things throughout the county, State, and Country.  We are also looking for volunteers to continuing helping your local chapter provide access to great, low cost training opportunities. If you have given back to the profession, or would like to volunteer for the chapter, shoot me an email so we can recognize you in our Newsletter!
We also would like to continue our thanks to Kia Motors America and Ernst and Young for sponsoring the chapter at the GOLD level, and Focal Point Data Risk for sponsoring the chapter at the SILVER level. We are proud to have these sponsors as continued partners in our success.  If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, our Chapter has several opportunities.  Please contact me at if you would like to sponsor your local IIA chapter.   

Best regards,

Rachel Snell
President (2017), IIA Orange County Chapter
