The President’s Letter
Welcome to the summer edition of e-news!
First I would like to introduce myself to you as the incoming President of
the Dallas Chapter.
My name is Melinda Lokey and I am a Director in the Audit Services department at
Triad Hospitals. My professional bio includes six years at Triad, four years at
PricewaterhouseCoopers and three years at a regional CPA firm in Waco, Texas. I
graduated from Baylor University in 1994 and became a CPA in 1997. I am
currently working to obtain a CIA certification. I live in Flower Mound with my
husband and 3-year-old son and enjoy lots of family time and traveling. We are
also expecting a baby in September 2007! Please take a moment at a monthly
meeting to find me and introduce yourself – everyone has a story and I enjoy
meeting everyone within our diverse membership!
Summer for the Dallas Officers is spent assessing prior year results and
planning for the new Chapter year. The Chapter accomplishments for 2006 – 2007
- Total membership has grown to 2,200 members (that’s 5th largest in the
- Average meeting attendance has risen
almost 15% over the previous year.
- The SMART conference held in December
2006 and the Fraud Summit held in March 2007 were both sell-outs.
- 115 continuing education hours
offered to Dallas members.
Many thanks go out to each of the volunteers who participated throughout the
year and especially to Pamela Krakosky, the outgoing President. Her hard work
and leadership were crucial to the success of the Chapter!
Looking forward to 2007 – 2008, the Programs Committee is hard at work planning
the upcoming meetings, which includes topics, speakers and venues. This
committee is dependent on the efforts of many volunteers so if you’ve thought
about getting involved now is the time!
A listing of all active Chapter committees can be found at
http://www.dallasiia.org/Committees.htm. Once you have selected the committees
you are interested in, please contact Pamela Krakosky at

Internal Audit Education Moves Forward
We completed our fourth year of the Internal Audit program at UT
Dallas. We accomplished a lot with the past four years with
collaboration with the Dallas Chapter. This coming year you will
see many new things happening around the country related to Internal
Audit education. One that will have a much bigger impact than
originally planned is the new book that will be used by most schools
for Internal Audit education - Internal Auditing: Assurance and
Consulting Services. This project was funded and published by IIA
Research Foundation. You all have the opportunity to attend the
North American kickoff on August 17 at UT Dallas which will feature
all the authors. Details for the event can be found in this
newsletter and registration is on the Chapter Web site. Be sure to
In talking to many educators around the globe the one thing many
of them have been waiting for is a new contemporary internal audit
book that could be used in the classroom. UT Dallas and UT Austin
piloted the book during this past year prior to going to print this
month. You will see internal audit taught at significantly more
schools throughout the U.S.
We are adding to the program at UTD with a new Advanced Auditing
course that will target training concepts for audit seniors and
managers. This course will compliment our unique offerings in Audit
Software and Forensic Accounting Investigations. An
Assistant Director-Chris Lindsteadt will join the program in the
fall semester teaching external audit along with advising students
on career planning.
IIA International expanded its Academic Relations area this last
summer by rolling out a new Internal Auditing Education Partnership
program with the new logo shown above. You will be hearing and
seeing a lot more about this program in the future. If you haven’t
visited the IIA International Academic Relations Web site lately it
has been significantly updated and is at www.theiia.org/academic.
You can find a wealth of information about promoting internal audit
along with the status of the various programs around the globe. If
you go to the IIA International Conference in Amsterdam this year
there is an entire track of Education and Practitioners working
together which is new and planned to be an annual track at the
So you think all this just happens by chance or without a
strategy? The focus on internal audit education has been a
strategic directive of the IIA for a number of years. It has taken
some time to get things in place and now you will see the impact of
this strategic direction. You can find this and other strategic
directives of the IIA at
