 President's Message


It is hard to believe that we are wrapping up the end of the chapter year and I am so proud of the great accomplishments we achieved over the last year. We just had a very successful and best in class annual conference and I want to thank Deanna Sullivan and the conference committee for their dedication and for everyone that was able to attend.

May is Internal Audit Awareness month and this is a great opportunity to show the value and key roles that we play in our organizations as we move to a post-covid world. May 1st has also been recognized by Mayor Turner as the Institute of Internal Auditors Day, so check out the proclamation and share with your teams and audit committee members. Please join us on May 3rd for an IIA Involvement and Career Trajectory Panel Discussion, where we will hear from some of our own members about their involvement with the IIA at the North American and Global Level.

It is hard to believe that the Chapter year is coming to a close. I want to personally thank every officer, board member, and the countless number of volunteers for their dedication to the Chapter and who have made this a successful year. Even during a virtual year, we have continued to provide quality and affordable CPE to our members along with key events that resonate with our members such as the Petrochem Symposium, CAE and Manager Roundtables, Government Conference, and the Annual Conference. These volunteers have spent many hours ensuring that the chapter continues to give back to its members and to the profession. Again, thank you for all that you do for the chapter. 

I would also like to wish the incoming officers and board members the best of luck and look forward to their leadership. I also look forward to being able to interact with each of you at an in-person event in the near future.

To all new members, I want to personally welcome you to the Houston IIA Chapter. I hope that you join us at an upcoming event and consider becoming involved as a volunteer.

Please make sure that you follow us on LinkedIn to stay up to date on Chapter news and to connect with your fellow members.

Thank you for your continued support and it was an honor to serve this chapter as your President.
