 President's Message


As we wind down from summer, dodging hurricanes and looking forward to what the fall will bring, Internal Auditors must continue to remain vigilant, adaptable, and present to help their organization in not just managing risk and controls but also helping transition to the current state that has no real end in sight.

As such, your chapter is continuing to evolve and provide relevant and timely training, resources, and tools to help you succeed. I want to thank everyone for their participation in last month’s events, including Danny Goldberg’s presentation on “Agile Auditing” and Casey Shaffer from Robert Half’s presentation on “Job Search in the World of Remote Work.” Both of these events have received positive feedback,

We look forward to and hope you will join us for the free member seminar this month where our own Deanna Sullivan will be presenting on “Ethics and Integrity in Turbulent Times: From Buzzwords to Behavior,” which is eligible for up to 2 CPE hours that will meet the CIA ethics requirement for the reporting year.

To ensure we have accurate records, we would like to request that all members log in to their IIA Account and update their Job Code and Industry Code. To do this, please log in to your IIA Account and select Account and then Preferences to update this information. As we continue to provide new and innovative services, we will be targeting certain staff and management levels along with industries, so we want to make sure you all receive the appropriate communications.

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 and Facebook to stay up to date on Chapter news and to connect with your fellow members.

Thank you for your support, and I look forward to seeing you online at a future event this year.
