Established in 1941, The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) serves as the internal audit profession’s global voice, recognized authority, acknowledged leader, chief advocate, and principal educator. Globally, The IIA has more than 180,000 members, which is comprised of 160 chapters serving more than 72,500 members in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean (Aruba, Bahamas, Barbados, Cayman Islands, Curacao, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, and Turks & Caicos), Bermuda, Guyana, and Trinidad & Tobago.
On February 25, 1949, Dallas was established as the 30th chapter of the IIA. The Dallas Chapter is currently the 5th largest chapter in North America, with approximately 2,100 members. Our purpose and objectives are to:
- Provide value and service to our chapter members through effective education, training and certification programs.
- Build the profession of internal auditing locally through enhanced training and programs to target groups, including supporting targeted universities.
- Promote the global internal audit profession through contributions of resources to research and professional programs
Our continued focus of providing valuable programs, services, and information to all of our members is evident by the Dallas Chapter continuously maintaining “SAPPHAIRE” chapter status.
