I want to wish all of you a Happy & Prosperous 2018!!  Hope everyone had a nice holiday break.  Reflecting back on 2017 the Edmonton Chapter had a great year with the capstone event – the IIA Canada Conference from September 24 -27.  Once again thanks to all the volunteers who made this event such a success!

For 2018 we will continue to offer the monthly luncheon on the 3rd Thursday of the month at the Westin.  There are a wide variety of topics that will be covered during these luncheons.  In January, we will be featuring the following presentation (please insert title with speakers name)  with MNP as the sponsor.

The Edmonton IIA/ACFE Fraud conference to be held on March 6&7 with registration open and available at the ACFE Edmonton website.  There are a couple of excellent keynote speakers lined up and the theme is Staying One Step Ahead. The price is remains at $300 for members for two full day sessions which is an outstanding value.

There is also a one day joint Edmonton IIA/ISACA IT Summit planned for the end of May so stay tuned for more details.

The two day Auditing Culture: Challenges and Proven Techniques with James Roth as facilitator slated for January 18 & 19 has been postponed until October 25 & 26 due to low registrations.  Please go to the IIA Canada website to register for this event which will be held at the Westin.

Wanted to say a special thanks to Janine Mryglod, our treasurer, who is responsible for all of the chapter finances and also complying with all of the reporting requirements from IIA Global. 

Looking forward to seeing many of you at the various events scheduled in 2018 – once again have a HAPPY & PROSPEROUS 2018!!​
