September 1 2017

Welcome back team – it’s September 1st and we are getting ready for the next fiscal year here at the SF IIA.  I really wanted to thank everyone who volunteered in the past 3 months as we prepared our plans for this year.  With your support we now have four new committees --- SOCIAL, ACADEMIC, CHAPTER INTEGRATION, and SOCIAL IMPACT.  Our chapter integration committee will be working closely with ISACA, ACFE, and other IIA chapters to integrate our chapter learning and social activities.  Our new social impact committee will be working closely with a local not for profit which will allow our members to directly make a difference in the community.  Please join us on September 28th as we have our first open house, social, and rollout our not for profit we will be working with…. Should be lot of fun and a great teaming opportunity. 

Our agenda for the year will include:

1.      Lunches

2.      CAE and Manager roundtables

3.      All day seminars

4.      Socials throughout the year

5.      And something new – 3-4 hour “workshops” focused on key topics of interest to all of us – Robotics, Data Analytics, and Cyber!

Our complete agenda with dates throughout the year should be available by the end of September – please mark your calendars early!

Of course if you have any ideas or would like to be involved please give me a call (510.502.3041) or email ( – would love to hear from you!  I look forward to seeing you at one of our events!  Please keep a look out for more information through our Chapter emails and via the SF IIA Chapter website.

Finally - Many thanks to all of my fellow Board of Governor members, our volunteers, and to each of you, our members!
