 President's Message


Dear Members,

Happy New Year! Now that 2017 has come to an end, many folks will take the opportunity to reflect on the past year’s successes and failures to reinvigorate themselves for a super charged 2018. If this sounds like you, then you may want to check out Richard Chambers’ blog on “Five Internal Audit Resolutions for 2018 and Beyond”.

Our Chapter has much to be proud of which will be highlighted in our Chapter's 2016-2017 Annual Report and expected to be published in the newsletter section of the website this month. I am honored to have the opportunity to help support our community by providing the Houston Food Bank with a $10,000 check in support of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts! Click here for additional details.​

For those eternal pessimists out there who don’t buy into the “Happy New Year” cliché, let’s talk about what’s happening in 2018. As mentioned previously, IIA certification holders will be required to obtain 2 hours of CPE in Ethics for 2018.  Our February luncheon will be a great opportunity to learn about Fraud and Ethics through a 1 hour lunch and afternoon seminar.

Join us at our upcoming events and feel free to bring a friend:

  • February 21st:  Government Audit Conference at the Norris Center
  • March 5th: Houston IIA March 2018 Luncheon at Petroleum Club of Houston ​ 
  • March 21st​:  Networking Event at Karbach Brewery with Larry Dierker – Former Astros pitcher and broadcaster.​
  • April 9th:  Houston’s 9th Annual Conference at  Reliant Center   

I want to thank all the board members, officers, and volunteers who contributed to the success of the Chapter this past year and hope we continue to have people step forward to make an impact in 2018.


Greg Bone
Houston Chapter President
