New Members

The Atlanta Chapter of the IIA has achieved a tremendous amount of success over the past years and continues as a leader in building professional relationships and as an advocate for the profession. The chapter hosted IIA Regional Conference in 1993 and 2007, hosted the IIA International Conference in 1970 and 2010 and won the prestigious Internal Mastering Advocacy Program Award (IMAP) in 2009. To help support and advocate the future leaders in the profession, the Chapter has donated over $110,000 to Kennesaw State University to assist KSU in being accredited to issue Internal Audit Education Partnership (IAEP) certificates.   

The Atlanta Chapter achieved Platinum status in 2013 for the first time and has repeated every year since.  Platinum status is only awarded after ten consecutive years of Gold Awards, is the highest Chapter recognition from the IIA awarded for excellence in serving our members, serving the profession, and meeting the IIA’s requirements for chapter administration.  It is our intent to maintain that status and further the leadership and service that we can provide to the Atlanta membership and internal auditing profession.

Attending A Chapter Meeting

One of the best ways to get started in the IIA is to attend a Chapter meeting. We think you will find the Atlanta Chapter meeting to be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. Meetings are an opportunity to gain insights into the profession, attend presentations on topics that are relevant to your daily audit activities and network with others that are active in the audit profession. We typically hold Chapter meetings on the second Friday of the month from 11am to 3pm with lunch included.

While most attendees are in business casual attire, we do not provide a dress code and want you to be comfortable. The presentation, location and logistics for each meeting are posted on the website. If you are new to the Chapter or a visitor, let us know. We have a program to provide you an “ambassador” that will introduce you to other members and aid you to become more familiar with the Chapter. We suggest you register on line early, as meetings do fill up quickly; payment is easiest on line, but can be made at the door.

Plan to arrive early as you will find opportunities abound to network, both before and after the meetings. A lunch is provided, we make a few announcements or conduct Chapter related business for a few minutes and then we go into the presentations. Frequently there are two or more topics presented and with interaction encouraged. Presentations can cover a wide range of topics and are selected based upon interest of the membership and current relevancy. The presentation materials are posted to the website after each meeting. Once again, there is an opportunity for networking after the meeting ends and we try to get you out in plenty of time to avoid the infamous Atlanta rush hour traffic. In all, it is a half day with lunch provided and some of the best networking opportunities you will find within the profession.

 

Attending a Chapter meeting is just the first step to getting more involved in the profession and expanding your professional network. Take a look at the Training and Events, News or Volunteers Corner to find other ways to get involved.
