Michiana IIA Chapter
45th Anniversary Celebration
May 30, 2013
On May 30 a group from the Michiana Chapter, joined by District Representative Duane Borkowski and District Advisor John Bowman gathered to celebrate 45 years as an organized IIA chapter. The venue was impressive – a rooftop deck in South Bend with panoramic views of Notre Dame and the Golden Dome.
Attendees enjoyed appetizers and beverages while they networked with each other, and then were treated to a dynamic presentation on the state of the Michiana economy from Jeff Rea, the President and CEO of the St. Joseph County Chamber of Commerce. Incoming chapter President Richard Fair presented each attendee with a list of chapter presidents over the past 45 years and recognized several who were in attendance. He noted the changes in individual and company affiliations that had occurred over the years but the constancy that remains with this chapter's continued participation in the greater Michiana internal audit community.
On behalf of the chapter Richard received a 45th Anniversary achievement certificate signed by Richard Chambers, along with the 2012-2013 Chapter Achievement Program Gold Award presented by Duane and John. All agreed it was an enjoyable event, and through a look back sent the chapter forward in good fashion to the next 45th years.
