The Dallas Chapter - April 2006 eNews

April 2006

The President’s Letter

Hello,

The April meeting is a special meeting for us. We are honored that the IIA President, Dave Richards, will be joining us to speak at our luncheon. It has taken us almost 2 years to get this scheduled. Can you imagine how busy he is with all the attention to the internal audit profession in the last couple years? Come hear his perspective on the profession and our association.

The April meeting is also our special student event. A big welcome to local university students!! Finally, we will try to honor the new CIA’s at the April meeting if we get the certificates in time from IIA. Otherwise, look for this in May.

With all of this activity, we will be at capacity crowd again, which brings me to discuss a couple of administrative items. First, we have to consider changing locations. Please help us make this critical decision by completing the member survey at http://dallasiia.org/Member_Survey_06.htm. See more information below in the newsletter.

Second, we have a portion of people each luncheon that are bypassing the registration tables and going straight into lunch. Even if you prepay on the internet, we still need to put a checkmark by your name for both CPE purposes and to reconcile the CityPlace bill. Also, the chapter is loosing some revenue for those not prepaid. One person can check in a group reservation, but we need that person to have an accurate count of who is attending for their organization.

I believe the registration issue is happening due to the large numbers attending the meetings and the narrow hallway we have as a registration area. If you enter the lunch through the second hallway to avoid the crowds, please come back to the registration tables before 12 noon to check in. Please help us to do this properly. We want to avoid taking other measures that will only slow down the process even more.

In closing, always keep an eye on our Web site. We try to update it regularly with new information. We may have other area associations’ seminars listed that would interest you. Also, we are trying something new, if we receive permission from our speakers, we will be putting the presentations on an easy to find page on our Web site. See http://www.dallasiia.org/Handouts.htm.

Hope you enjoy the April Meeting!

IIA Research Foundation

The Research Foundation has a number of reports that are scheduled to be released in 2006. A brief summary of these include:

  • Internal Audit Role during Mergers & Acquisitions: The European Union Experience - Mergers and acquisitions represent a dynamic process of corporate culture and strategy. This study will try to analyze the present level of involvement of internal audit function during the M&A activity and compare it with the preferred and ideal level of involvement.
     
  • Taking It to the Next Level: Sarbanes-Oxley and COSO ERM - Objectives of this report are to help readers understand how Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance can be expanded into Enterprise Risk Management (ERM), how the COSO internal control and ERM frameworks can be integrated and used in this transformation, and the role internal audit can play in this transformation. It will include case studies of leading organizations who have gone through or are going through this transformation and provide concrete examples of techniques that they can use as models to develop or enhance their own practices.
     
  • Behavioral Aspects of Internal Auditing - This project will contribute to the current understanding of managerial competence, interpersonal communications, and other general behavioral “aspects” in the internal auditing profession. Auditor-client interactions occur in a social context, and consist of verbal and nonverbal as well as oral and written communications. The monograph will discuss extant literature to better understand desirable behavioral characteristics of internal auditors, identifying behaviors that result in enhanced audit relationships.
     
  • The Internal Audit Function’s Corporate Governance Relationships - The purpose of the research is to provide current evidence for understanding the critical and complex role of the internal audit function (IAF) in the corporate governance processes of U.S. public companies. With the internal audit function now being viewed as one of the four cornerstones of corporate governance, there is a need for increased understanding about how the IAF interacts with the audit committee, management, and the external auditors to achieve quality corporate governance.
