Warm Greetings to the Los Angeles Chapter Members and Guests,

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”

I couldn’t help but think of Charles Dicken’s paradoxical passage from A Tale of Two Cities in reflecting the current state of affairs.  For Mother Nature, perhaps these are the best of times.  Pollution levels are lower due to decreased activities and people are able to spend more time with their families.

For the Los Angeles Chapter, these may be the best of times.  Our membership has grown to greater than 1000, a key 2020 goal!  We quickly pivoted from our in-person meetings to virtual ones and were also able to build the bond with the west region chapters by working to include all the leaders and members.  We have speakers and participants join us from near and far (both domestically and internationally).  Geographical boundaries are no longer an issue.  While these times may be difficult while we adjust, I am optimistic that we will emerge from this experience stronger and more resilient.  Please take this time to reflect, rediscover, and reconnect with your core values. 

In the meantime, the Los Angeles Chapter will continue to provide you with high-quality continuing education opportunities and we look forward to connecting with you through our virtual events.  Please mark your calendars for May 13th, as we prepare for our "Internal Audit Hot Topics" event with very special VIP guests during Internal Audit Awareness Month.  Registration details will be announced soon.  Please keep your eyes out on LinkedIn.  

With warmth and gratitude,





Also, please join us for the last event before summer!  Gain the latest knowledge in the below area, receive CPE credits, and network with industry professionals!  Save the below date and stay tuned for more information.

Dear IIA Los Angeles Chapter Members and Internal Audit Professionals/Prospective Members:


Summer was a time for reflection, recalibration, and retreats (both officer and Board of Governors)!  We held two strategic planning meetings to prioritize our top initiatives and set the course for the upcoming 2019-2020 year.  We ensured that our goals are aligned with IIA National’s goals.  We also engaged an executive coach to help bring our team to a higher level of empathy, synergy and productivity.  I can confidently say that our strong team of Officers and dedicated Governors are focused on achieving our top three initiatives:

1.Growing Academic Relations
2.Providing valuable programming to enhance member engagement
3.Helping more members achieve certifications


Now that the successful International Conference is behind us, we have returned to the normal cadence of our monthly events!  I hope you are all excited about our upcoming programming.  These meetings are designed with your needs and interest in mind, and we greatly appreciate your support.  We hope that you can take advantage of the informative curriculum and opportunities to network with your fellow Internal Audit Professionals.  Please see details below  regarding our November joint event with ACFE.  The theme is Anti-Fraud.  This is typically one of our most well-attended events, and we recommend registering early to guarantee your spot.  


Please check back at our website for upcoming events.  You can also follow us on LinkedIn​ or email ( to request to receive our monthly Newsletter for so much more!  




Are you interested in discussing emerging trends, benchmarking & best practices, knowledge sharing, and networking with LA's Chief Audit Executives?  If so, join our monthly CAE Roundtable meetings.  Email CAE Chair ( to get on the next invite!
