Greetings Dallas Chapter members! The Chapter opened the New Year with another successful joint meeting with ISACA on January 8th. We thank our counterparts at ISACA for organizing a great event with another group of top notch speakers. Our next monthly meeting will be February 8th at the Doubletree Campbell Centre in Dallas. Our topics for the day include Big Data Analytics (Carolyn Gibson & Francisco Rocha Jaje, PwC), Aggressively Addressing Anti-Corruption Risk (Todd Freeman, CBI), and Lessons from Audits of Construction Projects (Debbie Townsend, President of R. L. Townsend & Associates, LLC). More information on the speakers and topics, as well as registration instructions, can be found at our homepage www.dallasiia.org.
In addition to the February monthly meeting, the Dallas Chapter of the IIA is also accepting Officer and Governor Nominations for the 2015-16 Chapter year. Our Chapter is a volunteer-driven organization and we cannot be successful going forward without the continued support of talented Internal Audit professionals throughout our Chapter. If you would like to be considered in the nominations process, please go to our website at http://dallasiia.org/Nomination.htm and complete the application form. Volunteering as an Officer or Governor is a challenging yet rewarding experience and we encourage anyone who has an interest to consider pursuit of this opportunity.
Lastly, I want to remind all of our members that registration is currently open for UTD’s 10th Annual Fraud Summit. For more information regarding the event’s speakers and activities, please follow this link http://dallasiia.org/PDF/Fraud_Seminar_2015_Annoucment.pdf for details. This 2 day event is quickly filling to capacity so please register soon as seats are limited!
2014/15 President – Dallas IIA
