Lunch Meeting 12:00pm
Conquering the New Professional Practices Framework
Did you know that all internal auditors, whether or not they are members of The Institute of Internal Auditors, are strongly encouraged to adopt the new Standards for the Professional Practice of Internal Auditing? IIA members and Certified Internal Auditors agree to follow The IIA's Code of Ethics, which requires compliance with the Standards. The mandatory implementation date for Standards released in December 2000 was January 1, 2002, and the mandatory implementation date for the new consulting standards was July 1, 2002. Those Standards are an integral part of the new Professional Practices Framework published this past April.
To help all of us in the Dallas Chapter of IIA improve our understanding of the new Framework, Veronica Johnson, IIA Chapter Relations Manager from Orlando, Florida, will be providing us with a briefing at the luncheon meeting. Veronica is a CIA and has traveled the United States helping auditors and audit departments with the implementation of the new Framework and the new Standards. Please join us to hear Veronica provide guidance on how "consulting" has changed the auditor's traditional role.

Joan's work in the auditing field focuses on the consultative and value-added methodology in audit approaches, including Risk Enterprise Management (REM) and Control & Risk Self-Assessment (CRSA) methodologies, internal negotiations and communication skills, operational skills, quality and customer-service skills, and the presentation skills needed in the non-technical areas of their work. Joan has been a frequent speaker and seminar leader for a number of chapters and conferences for the Institute of Internal Auditors, as well as for the MIS Training Institute, the BIA, ICBI-Europe, AHIA, and the EDPAA.

At least 50 different organizations are using Joan's facilitation training, including: Walters Industry, State Farm Insurance, Virginia Commonwealth University, Boeing, Arco, Praxair and numerous IIA chapters. Joan worked with Airtouch Communications, Branch Banking & Trust (BB&T), and Blue Cross/Blue Shield Audit Departments to develop the first and best BSA facilitation and consultation skills training courses available, and JPA is now fully equipped to assist audit departments design and implement CRSA or other innovative risk-based approaches from beginning to end.

It's not too late to attend the IIA District Conference in Galveston, September 29 to October 1. For $495, you can receive up to 16 hours of CPE (including a session which meets the Texas CPA ethics requirement). A terrific program is planned with national-level speakers in both general sessions and four specific tracks. There will be great opportunities for networking and relaxation, too, as we enjoy the Moody Gardens grounds and their spectacular Rainforest Pyramid (one of three) for our dinner event on Monday night. Historic and scenic Galveston Island provides terrific opportunities for enjoyment before, during, and after the conference. The conference hotel is an easy 30-minute shuttle ride from Houston's Hobby Airport (a Southwest Airlines hub) and or 50 minutes from Bush Intercontinental Airport (a Continental Airlines hub).
For more information, go to http://www.houstoniia.org and click on the "Make It Happen" conference logo. There is a full conference brochure and a registration form available in pdf format. You can disregard the late fee.
Most important, however, is that you make your reservation ASAP at the Moody Gardens Hotel. This is a beautiful new resort facility which is a bargain at our conference rate of $126/night. But that rate will only be available while there is still room in the conference block. They can be reached at 888-388-8484.
