Welcome Dallas Chapter! Thank you to everyone who helped to elect me as the 2016-2017 Chapter President. It is an honor to serve you, our members, as well as to promote the Internal Audit profession.
I’m pleased to report that our chapter year is off to a great start. I would like to thank our Officers, Volunteers, and Board of Governors for their dedication and support. We are continuously seeking enthusiastic volunteers – at all stages of their careers – to volunteer on one of our many committees. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Chris Mowery, Volunteer Coordinator, email@example.com, if you are interested in one of these opportunities.
Some exciting news regarding our monthly meetings – they will be held first thing in the morning and for the low price of $35, you will receive 4 hours of CPE as well as a light breakfast! The first meeting will be on Friday, September 2 at The University of Texas at Dallas. The meeting will run from 8am – 12pm.
Registration for the 5th Annual Super Conference is now open. The Conference will be held on October 28th at the Dallas Intercontinental Hotel. Early-bird pricing is available until September 9, 2016. If you have general questions, please feel free to contact the Conference Chair: Joseph Mauriello at Joseph.Mauriello@utdallas.edu. For more information and to register for the Super Conference please use the following link.
I recently had the opportunity to attend the IIA’s 2016 International Conference. This year’s conference was the 75th International Conference held by the IIA and drew attendees from all over the world. To make the conference even better, UTD student Lance Giles received the prestigious Esther R. Sawyer Award for his essay, “Internal Auditor, Advocate for Thyself/ Professional Advocacy Recommendations for Internal Auditing.”
In closing, your feedback is very important to me. Please let me know what we can do as a Chapter to enhance your membership experience. Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or find me at one of our future events.
Thank you for being part of the Dallas Chapter and I hope to see you at our next meeting!
2016-2017 President – Dallas IIA
