CAP Description and Acheivement 

 

The Institute of Internal Auditors (The IIA) Chapter Achievement Program (CAP) is designed to recognize activities that promote the strategic objectives of The IIA. This program provides minimum standards of performance, emphasizes the basic mission of the Chapter, encourages Chapters to perform that mission, and provides Chapters with a means to evaluate their success in accomplishing that mission.
A chapter must earn the minimum CAP points annually in each of the three service categories which are:

 

  1. Service to Members is measured based upon the number of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) qualified education opportunities offered to Chapter members plus the number of CPE hours actually experienced (or consumed) by Chapter members. More weight is given to the percent of members participating than for merely offering a program. The rationale is that over time the quality and responsiveness to member needs is reflected in actual member attendance. In a like manner, the number of hours offered and attended in a CIA review course is credited on the same basis as CPE hours.
  2. Service to the Profession is measured by education (CPE and review course) hours attended by Chapter non-members, and those specific contributions to the profession, which, in effect, indirectly benefit all internal auditors (i.e., not limited to a specific Chapter). Measurement is based upon specific events and actions taken in an effort to encourage and recognize service and achievement to general professional goals such as increasing membership, academic relations activities, research, editorials, and speaker’s bureau, etc.
  3. Chapter Administration covers the administration and management of the Chapter and includes activities classified as Reporting (monthly and annual), Participation (workshop and leadership conference) and Communications (newsletters and website).
All IIA-LA Chapter members can contribute and generate CAP points for IIA-LA when they:
  1. Receive the CIA, CCSA, CFSA or CGAP
  2. Submit an article(s) to the Internal Auditor – published or not (please provide article copy for points)
  3. Submit an article to any other professional journal – published or not (please provide article copy and professional journal name for points)
  4. Participate in a speaking engagement on internal auditing – (please provide where / when / length of speech)
  5. Submit exam questions for IIA Certifications: CIA, CCSA, CFSA, CGAP – if accepted, please provide date of submit and/or accept)
