The Research Foundation has initiated the Master Key Program this year. The purpose of this Program is to increase the distribution of research results to target audiences. For a subscription price of $1,000, organizations will be able to receive all publications of the Research Foundation as they become available. The Master Key Program ensures that your company stays in the loop on all Foundation findings and that you are among the first to receive the new publications. For more information, contact the Research Administrator Nicki Creatore (407-830-7600 ext. 279) or by email at email@example.com.
|New CIAs who passed the May 2001 Exam and met the eligibility requirements received their CIA certificates at the September luncheon. In total, 15 Dallas Chapter IIA members attained the Certified Internal Auditor designation. Congratulations to the following chapter members:|
"Why?" you ask.
Because strengthening our chapter programs, bolstering our leadership, and, more importantly, growing our organization all require that we pay close attention to membership.
So what are we going to do about it?
The IIA has developed a membership campaign called Membership Matters and there are two easy ways to participate:
To sweeten the pot, The IIA has added some great incentives that you can win:
As an added bonus, by participating in the campaign you could help our chapter win an IIA on-site chapter seminar presented by an expert instructor!
For complete details refer to The IIA web site at www.theiia.org or pick up one of the brochures at the November meeting.
Please join us in welcoming our newest members to the Dallas Chapter:

It's time again for the survey to determine which IIA Dallas Chapter members have submitted articles or spoken during October, or earlier if not previously reported. Each speaking engagement on internal auditing that a Dallas Chapter member completes will earn the Chapter 1 credit per CPD hour. Each full article, Roundtable article, Fraud Finding, etc. submitted that meets basic editorial guidelines will earn 5 credits. For each full article published 20 credits are earned. Each internal audit related article published in any other trade or professional journal that is authored by a chapter member is 5 credits.
To report your writing and speaking go to http://dallasiia.org/Speaking.htm and complete the provided form by November 16, 2001. Contact Dace Ward (email@example.com, 972-605-6128) if you have any questions.
Have you ever dreamed of being published but did not know where to get started? We all know different tools of the trade that would benefit others. Why not share your knowledge while inspiring others to share theirs. The following information obtained from the Institute of Internal Auditors might just be the jump-start that you have been waiting for. So good luck and who knows you could be the next Clancy.
THE EDITORIAL CONTENT OF INTERNAL AUDITOR is divided into two segments: articles and departments. Potential authors with good ideas and information to share need to decide whether their subjects should be explored in depth-and are thus more appropriate to an article format-or whether the submission would work better in one of Internal Auditor's departments. Authors include practitioners who are usually internal auditors but not always; they include senior management; academics, many of who are involved in relevant research; consultants; and others. Slightly more than 20 percent of Internal Auditor's readers are from regions other than North America; so submitted manuscripts should reflect the magazine's global focus.
ONE BASIC CRITERION FOR ANY GOOD manuscript is whether or not the author has something of value to say: Does the manuscript provide information others might need or value? The best catalyst for a good article is likely to come from one's own internal audit experiences. Individuals who have found a way to audit a new high-risk area or to simplify report writing, for example, have information others want and will avidly read. Successful writers put themselves in the position of the readers and think about what the readers want to know about the topic, not only what they as writers want to say about it.
Because writing an article requires a considerable investment of time and energy, potential writers may want to review back issues of Internal Auditor to get an idea of the types of material generally published, as well as the general editorial tone and article construction. Authors are also invited to write or call an Internal Auditor editor to discuss a particular topic. Editors are always searching for good material and good authors, and such inquiries are usually of value to both the writer and the staff.
SUBMITTING A FEATURE
FEATURE MANUSCRIPTS USUALLY RUN ABOUT 2,500 words, plus exhibits, but can be more or less depending on content. Articles should be submitted in hardcopy as well as on disk, preferably in a Microsoft Word or WordPerfect format. All submissions should be sent to Editor, Internal Auditor, 249 Maitland Ave., Altamonte Springs, FL 32701-4201. The name, address, and telephone number of the author are necessary, even when the manuscript is submitted through an IIA chapter.
THE REVIEW PROCESS FOR MANUSCRIPTS SUBMITTED to Internal Auditor generally takes about 8 to 10 weeks. As soon as the manuscript is received, an acknowledgment is sent to the author. Three members of the editorial policy review board, selected for their knowledge of the topic, receive a "blind" copy of the manuscript. They evaluate the manuscript based on:
Once the reviewers have made their recommendations, the editor evaluates their comments, makes the final decision on whether to publish, and notifies the author. If an article has been rejected, the author is usually given a consensus comment from the reviewers' critiques. Sometimes the author is asked to rewrite the article and submit it again.
For several reasons, one being that Internal Auditor is a bimonthly publication; there may be a substantial time lapse between date of acceptance and date of publication. Accepted articles are filed according to their date of acceptance, but they may not always be published in precise chronological order because of special editorial considerations, an issue focusing on a special theme, for example. Once the article has been scheduled for publication, the author is notified that the editing process has begun. The editor may suggest changes that are minor or fairly extensive, based on several considerations. The author is sent a copy of the edited manuscript so that any inaccuracies can be corrected before publication. Dialogue between the editor and the author is part of the final editorial process.
ALTHOUGH MANY OF THE FOLLOWING TOPICS are fairly broad, we look for manuscripts with a clearly defined internal audit focus. Our Communications Advisory Committee, staff, and other readers have helped compile this list of topics that are of particular interest to audit professionals, and that they'd like to read about in Internal Auditor:
THE INTERNAL AUDITOR EDITORIAL CALENDAR is distributed to those interested in the special focus of each issue. Of course, articles on other topics are also published in each issue.
