Welcome to The Vancouver Island Chapter
President’s Message
On behalf of myself and your Board, welcome to the Vancouver Island IIA Chapter. The chapter continues to offer an engaging professional development program with monthly luncheons at the Union Club in beautiful downtown Victoria.
The IIA is a large global organization and in Canada, there are chapters in every province.  Our chapter may be small but we consider the efforts of the Board and members mighty.
The Chapter has just attained Platinum status for 10 consecutive years of meeting a high standard of excellence.  This could not have been done without the quality of the people volunteering and the high caliber of internal audit professionals on Vancouver Island.
Our annual fraud seminar in October is our premier event with a day long session.  Our speakers captivate and educate the audience in fraud prevention, detection and lessons learned. Look for joint events with other local professional bodies throughout the year that maximize networking opportunities. Also, we aim to provide annual training of relevant emerging topics as we strive to keep you informed on changes in our profession.
As incoming president, along with the board we will be continuing to build on successes.  The vision of past presidents brought to fruition an internal audit course at Camosun College.  We are happy to be participating in Camosun’s Accounting Week 13-16 March. Additionally, we continue to support development of the profession at the student level with the presentation of an internal audit $1,000 scholarship in April of each year.
We are extremely proud of the program we have developed with you, the members, in mind.  The input received from internal audit professionals at all stages of career inform our choices and we seek to continually serve you, the members.
I look forward to meeting you all at upcoming events.
