This Month: Adding Value
Tuesday, May 15, 2001
12:00 Lunch Meeting
Best Practices in Value Added Auditing
Registration begins at 11:30.
The new definition of internal auditing says we add value through assurance and consulting activities and evaluating risk management, control, and governance processes. But what does this mean in practice? This enlightening session will begin to give you the answer. Roth will present best practices that exemplify the new definition--practices of recognized internal audit leaders like DuPont, Lucent Technologies, and JCPenney, as well as emerging leaders like Canada Post and the City of Austin.
James Roth is president of AuditTrends, a training and consulting firm devoted to internal audit best practice. Jim has more than three decades of progressive internal audit and teaching experience. He has worked in a variety of financial industries and developed risk-based approaches applicable to any industry. Jims publications include eight seminars, a number of articles on internal control and corporate governance, and eight major educational products for the IIA.
There will be no Pre- or Post-meeting this month due to the ongoing seminar.
This meeting is being held at CityPlace Conference Center.

The survey results will be combined with data obtained from a variety of interviews and published as part of the NACDs Board Leadership Series. Participants are assured of confidentiality.

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 have attended at least TWO monthly chapter meetings during the period September through April.
The price includes continental breakfast, the lunch on the day of IIA Dallas Chapter May Meeting, and morning and afternoon snacks.
Remember, you need to have attended 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.
