A Note from the 2020-21 President, Lola Foster


I hope you are staying safe and healthy! 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused each of us to increase resiliency and adapt to the unfamiliar.  During this time of transformation and challenge, the Detroit Chapter’s Board of Governors is committed to serving our members.  We will remain agile and continue to deliver cost effective, quality training programs as a convenient method to expand knowledge and earn CPEs.  

With your health and safety our priority, the chapter leadership team has decided to offer only virtual events for the remainder of 2020.  We will provide updates on 2021 events and delivery methods later this year.  Click here for information on upcoming events.  Invitations to the September meeting should arrive in your inbox shortly.  

Let stay connected!  The Detroit Chapter primarily communicates with members through email. Please login to to review and update your member profile including your email address.  This will help ensure you receive communication from the chapter and IIA headquarters.

While logged in, take a few minutes to become acquainted with the assemblage of information on the website. The IIA offers a wide variety of publications providing up-to-date news and information about various sectors of the internal audit profession.   As a reminder the Internal Auditor magazine is a digital only publication and can also be located within the Bookstores and Publications section.

Lastly, the chapter values your input and is seeking volunteers to serve on a variety of committees. There is something for everyone.    Please submit your name and committee preference to Chapter2@iiachapters.org.

Continue to stay safe and we look forward to your participation in upcoming events.

What's New at the National IIA and Emerging Issues

in the Profession of Internal Auditing


How deeply do you look at an owners’ manual for a newly purchased appliance, vehicle, or new “toy”?  You may miss valuable features if you short cut this review.  Likewise, have you ever fully explored everything that the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) offers to its members and to the profession?  For example, how intimate are you with the website, available resources, and other features associated with your membership? 

Last month we discussed changes to the profession and auditing during the pandemic.  What other emerging issues face our profession today?

We are fortunate that two representatives from the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) and KPMG will present this information at our upcoming meeting.
