 President's Message

 

Greetings Washington, DC Chapter Members,

I want to start by thanking each of you for your membership. It is because of you that the Washington, DC Chapter is the premier educational and development resource for internal audit, risk management, and governance. I would also like to welcome and thank the new Officer team. Please take a moment to view the ‘About Us’ page on our website to learn more about the Officers as well as their respective areas of responsibility. I also want to thank the Board of Governors (BoGs) for their dedication and leadership. Together, we have a dedicated team of professionals that are committed to providing volunteer and educational opportunities for our Chapter members.

The Washington, DC Chapter continues to maintain Platinum status in the Chapter Achievement Program (CAP). CAP is an achievement/recognition program that aid Chapters in focusing on activities that support annual goals and objectives for service to members and to the profession.  It is through your commitment and participation in Chapter meetings, trainings, and speaking engagements and articles that we have been able to sustain the Platinum status for the past 14 years and I thank you for making this possible!
Before I close, I want you to know that your Officer team is hard at work, finding new ways to serve you. We have several initiatives planned for the Chapter year to include our 2nd Annual Government Auditing Seminar and new networking opportunities. We encourage you to participate and volunteer–it’s fun and it’s a way to give back to the profession. With that, we want to hear from you! Please contact us with your ideas on how we can better serve you in areas such as training events topics, networking events or any other suggestion that comes to mind. Submit your suggestions through our website (https://chapters.theiia.org/washington-dc/Pages/default.aspx). We look forward to hearing from you!
 
Angela Davis
President (2015-2016)
