One, Two, FREE! (Almost)
One result of Dallas hosting the IIA International Conference in 1998 is having the resources to offer an almost FREE seminar to all Chapter members. The seminar is scheduled for May 14 and 15, 2001 with the topic of Best Practices in Value Added Auditing by James Roth.
(The almost part is that there will be a nominal registration fee (see below), lunch will not be included, and it will be B.Y.O.B (Bring Your Own Binder) for the materials.)
Now just offering a free seminar to every member would be a little too easy for you. So, there are a couple strings attached to this offer. To be eligible to attend this seminar for free, youll need to attend at least TWO monthly chapter meetings during the period September through April.
Time is growing short. If you have not attended two IIA meetings, you only have the March and April meetings to qualify for this opportunity.
The price includes continental breakfast, the lunch on the day of IIA Dallas Chapter May Meeting, and morning and afternoon snacks.
Remember; attend any two monthly meetings to be eligible for this free seminar! Mark your calendars now and plan on attending this information packed seminar. Deadline to sign up is May 9, 2001. See http://dallasiia.org/May_seminar.htm for seminar details and to register.
