Greetings Dallas Chapter! Our September meeting “Internal Audit Hot Topics” was exciting and informative. I hope that you have marked your calendar for our next meeting on October 2nd at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel in Richardson. Mike Jacka will be our featured speaker this month and he will lead each of the day’s sessions!
Our pre-meeting session is titled, “Auditing Social Media: Is the Company Controlling the Conversation?” The session will focus on the risks related to social media as well as its relation to a company’s reputation risk. By the end of the session, participants will have a better understanding of the appropriate risk responses organizations should consider in relation to social media.
The lunch session is titled, “Analyzing Processes: Tools for Operational Auditing.” This session will provide insight as to how internal auditors can provide greater value to all stakeholders through effective operational auditing. Attendees with gain an understanding of how to utilize an objective-focused approach to operational auditing that uses tools such as process mapping, customer mapping, and RACI matrices to better evaluate the functioning of those processes.
Our post-luncheon meeting topic is “Developing Your Personal Leadership Legacy” and it will provide an overview of how to ensure that you identify and develop your leadership traits. The presentation will provide attendees with a practical approach that can be used for leadership development at any level.
This year’s October meeting is also Academic Relations month. As such, we are excited to offer speed interviewing for students interested in the internal audit profession. Speed interviewing will run concurrently with our post-luncheon session.
