Stronger Together

"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." – Booker T. Washington

 

 

Greetings Atlanta IIA Chapter,

 

I am honored to serve as our Chapter President for the 2021-2022 year.

 

Over the past year we have found ourselves navigating unprecedented challenges stemming from the COVID pandemic, for ourselves and our families - through remote work, virtual school, and online appointments and errands.  Through it all we have demonstrated resilience and innovation while continuing to provide value added services. 

 

During this time, the Atlanta Chapter continues to impact our professional lives through relevant programming and meaningful activities.  I want to thank our outgoing President, Ms. Julie Hower, for her exemplary leadership this past year and her support in helping me transition into the role.  

 

As we look ahead, we are entering the new fiscal year more robust than ever, as evidenced by record attendance at our educational offerings, refreshed mentoring programs, and increased promotion of our profession within our community.  It is inspiring to see our members coming together to share ideas, support the Chapter vision, and connect!

 

Highlights of the past year include the following:   

 

·        The Atlanta Chapter continues to have Platinum status

·        The Atlanta Conference (TAC) Young Professionals and Mentoring Program

·        The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee (initiated last year)

·        CAE and Direct Reports Roundtables

·        Scholarships for internal auditing students

·        CIA Review Course

·        Financial Services Conference

·        The Government Conference

·        The Healthcare Conference

·        The IT Conference (initiated last year)

·        CAE Appreciation Day

·        Joint Meetings with GACFE

·        Joint Meeting with ISACA

·        The Bill Mulcahy – IIA Atlanta Auditing and Advisory Case Competition

 

As we embark on the new fiscal year, I encourage everyone to reflect on how we can be stronger together.  Please consider sharing your talents and experiences by volunteering with the Chapter.  There are many new and essential initiatives underway (e.g., promoting interest in the profession and mentoring future internal auditors by working with local high schools and colleges).  Additionally, continuing to advance our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) vision to integrate DE&I into the fabric of our organization and pursue opportunities that raise awareness and increase diverse representation in our membership, leadership, and profession.  

 

Finally, I would like to acknowledge the contributions and support from Nancy Thomas, our Chapter's Executive Director, now in her 14th year with us, along with the time and efforts of Amy Pichard, our chapter officers and key chairs, and all of our amazing volunteers!  

 

Looking at the year ahead, I look forward to serving our Chapter and hope to receive ongoing feedback and input from our members as we work to be stronger together.  

 

Warm Regards,

Scott Stevenson
