IIA Research Foundation

The Research Foundation has issued the report entitled Become a Strategic Internal Auditor: Tying Risk to Strategy.  Businesses today are spending more time on strategic issues and seeking more help from those with strategic capabilities.  This has created a unique opportunity for internal auditors to help their organizations both manage their risks and achieve their strategic goals.

In Become a Strategic Internal Auditor, you can learn how leading internal audit functions work with management to play a role in strategic initiatives.  Examples include:

  • Stay connected to the business.
  • Get involved earlier in the life cycle of strategic projects.
  • Use ERM to raise risk and strategy questions.
  • Use leading-edge risk assessments to gain knowledge for strategic initiatives.
  • Identify new skill sets needed to engage in strategic planning.

Become a Strategic Internal Auditor is based on multiple interviews and case studies at ADP, VMware, Raytheon, Harley-Davidson, and other leading organizations.  It provides practical information that you can use to become a trusted strategic advisor for your organization. The book can be ordered online at: http://www.theiia.org/bookstore/product/become-a-strategic-internal-auditor-tying-risk-to-strategy-1836.cfm/a>  (Item number 5033, member price -$40, non-member price - $50.  It can be ordered as an e-book or a download pdf, member price -$35, non-member price - $45.)

Keynote speakers

Richard Chambers, CEO and President of the IIA

Richard F. Chambers is president and CEO of The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the global professional association and standard-setting body for internal auditors. The IIA serves more than 180,000 members in 190 countries and is the internal audit profession’s most widely recognized advocate, educator, and provider of standards, guidance, and certifications.

Chambers leverages almost four decades of internal audit and related experience to direct nearly 200 professional staff members at The IIA’s global headquarters in Altamonte Springs, Fla., achieving the agreed-upon strategies and objectives on behalf of the North American and Global Boards of Directors.

During his five years as global CEO, Chambers has led The IIA to achieve record membership and launch of a number of valuable initiatives to benefit members and the internal audit profession at large, including the Audit Executive Center, Pulse of the Profession, AuditChannel.tv, Internal Auditor Online, Certification in Risk Management Assurance, COSO Resource Center, and American Center for Government Auditing.

Prior to assuming his current role in 2009, Chambers served as national practice leader in Internal Audit Advisory Services at PricewaterhouseCoopers and vice president of The IIA’s Learning Center. He spent the majority of his early career in public-sector auditing, including serving as Inspector General of the Tennessee Valley Authority; deputy inspector general of the U.S. Postal Service; and director, U.S. Army Worldwide Internal Review Organization at the Pentagon.

Chambers holds the Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), Certified Government Auditing Professional (CGAP), Certification in Control Self-Assessment (CCSA), Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA), and Certified Government Financial Manager (CGFM). He earned Bachelor of Business Administration and Master of Business Administration degrees from Georgia State University, as well as a Master of Arts degree in International Relations from Salve Regina University. He is a graduate of the U.S. Army War College.

Chad Hennings, 3 Time Superbowl Champion with the Dallas Cowboys, US Air Force Fighter Pilot and Current Dallas Entrepreneur

Although best known for his role with America's Team, Chad Hennings' successes began long before his professional football career. An accomplished lineman in high school, Hennings was offered full scholarships from universities across the nation. Instead, he chose to attend the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he racked up numerous honors academically and on the gridiron. Named most valuable athlete at the academy, he earned defensive player of the year honors from the Western Athletic Conference and was named to the WAC's All-Decade Team. In addition, he received the 1987 Outland Trophy, given to the country’s outstanding lineman, and the most valuable player designation at the 1988 Freedom Bowl. A two-time Academic All-American as well, Hennings was inducted into the Academic All-American Hall of Fame and College Football Hall of Fame.

His exemplary achievements put him at the top of many draft lists and earned him a spot on the Dallas Cowboys’ roster, but Hennings postponed his entry into the National Football League to fulfill his commitment to the U.S. Air Force. He entered the Euro-NATO program, a training program for top pilots, and soon found himself at the controls of the A-10 Thunderbolt.

During his four-year stint with the Air Force, Hennings flew 45 missions in support of Operation Provide Comfort in northern Iraq, an effort that helped provide relief and humanitarian aid to Kurdish refugees. He received two aerial achievement medals, a humanitarian award and an outstanding unit award for his actions in the service.
After his discharge, Hennings joined the Dallas Cowboys, quickly earning a starting position as a defensive lineman. He spent his entire 9-year professional football career with the Cowboys, retiring in 2001 with three Super Bowl rings.

Chad is the president of Hennings Management Corporation and chief operating officer for Colt Ventures – a venture capital investment firm.  He continues to serve the community as an advisory board member of Christian Community Action.  He is on the board for the Dallas Gridiron Club and the advisory board for the Dallas Football Classic.  He is active in several veterans’ initiatives and speaks to both businesses and non-profits on the topic of commitment.

He is the author of the book, “It Takes Commitment” and the newly released “Rules of Engagement.”
Chad is married to Tammy and they have two children, Chase and Brenna.
