About the Chapter

The Detroit Chapter of the IIA serves the internal audit community of the Metro-Detroit area of Southeast Michigan.

Established in 1941, The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) is an international professional association with global headquarters in Lake Mary, Florida, USA. The IIA is the internal audit profession's global voice, recognized authority, acknowledged leader, chief advocate, and principal educator. Generally, members work in internal auditing, risk management, governance, internal control, information technology audit, education, and security.

Globally, The IIA has more than 200,000 members. The IIA in North America comprises 159 chapters serving more than 70,000 members in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean (Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and Turks & Caicos), Bermuda, Guyana, and Trinidad & Tobago. Members enjoy benefits offered by the North American Service Center including local, national, and global professional networking; world-class training; certification; standards and guidance; research; executive development; career opportunities; and more. Internal auditors throughout North America enjoy free members-only webinars and national conferences such as the General Audit Management Conference, the Governance, Risk, and Control (GRC) Conference, and the All Star Conference. The IIA’s Audit Executive Center provides chief audit executives relevant and timely thought leadership and connections to peers for benchmarking and sharing best practices. And resources such as IIA Quality Services make The Institute an indispensable partner to you and your organization. 

Chapter Achievement Program

The Chapter Achievement Program (CAP) is a recognition program that tracks the Detroit Chapter’s activities over the course of a chapter year. The excel based spreadsheet records completion of certain activities and is submitted to IIA HQ at the end of the chapter year. 

Chapter health is measured into bronze, silver, or gold based on chapter activities that align with The IIA North American Strategic Plan for four service categories – programming, certification, advocacy, and membership. To achieve a ‘gold’ status, our chapter continues to coordinate and partner with IIA HQ to offer programming, promotes and encourages IIA certifications, advocates for the IIA and the profession, and maintains a strong chapter membership. 

Bronze = On-time completion of Chapter Health

Silver = On-time completion of Chapter Health + additional activities

Gold = On-time completion of Chapter Health + Silver + additional activities

Platinum = 10 of 11 years with Gold achievement

Ruby = 20 years of Gold achievement

Sapphire = 25 years of Gold achievement

Diamond = 35 years of Gold achievement

Chapters are required to use the CAP Excel template to submit their annual CAP activities.

The Detroit Chapter is proud of its SAPPHIRE standing! Our membership continues to support and drive growth and understanding in the world of internal audit.
