About the Meeting

Does your internal audit function deliver value? … in the eyes of your stakeholders in management and the board?  How about internal audit, in general?
What factors contribute to insight delivery…and what approaches do successful internal audit functions employ?
If you are interested in the answers to these questions, don’t miss the December Meeting & Holiday Event.  The IIA Research Foundation recently published a ground breaking study of insight and internal audit-aimed at determining what it is, how CAEs view it in comparison to our stakeholders, and what approaches seems to best enable insight delivery.  The study has been awarded the Larry Sawyer 2011 Research Foundation Project of the Year.
This is a timely session with valuable information for IA functions striving to deliver value.  We are fortunate that Patty Miller, a local IIA member, led the research project and can give us a first hand account. 
After the meeting, please join for us our annual holiday social. Drinks and appetizers will be served and will be a great time for networking with each other and sharing holiday cheer!
