News from UT Dallas

http://som.utdallas.edu/iaepOn October 23rd the UT Dallas IAEP Program welcomes Richard Chambers, President and CEO of the Institute of Internal Auditors, to talk with students in the Advanced Audit class.

The UT Dallas IIA/ISACA/ACFE continues to host exciting events for our student members. In October, the student chapter is hosting receptions for Liberty Mutual, Weaver, DTCC, BB&T, and PwC. In addition, Southwest Airlines held a site visit where about twenty students went to SWA’s headquarters and were given a tour of their internal audit department and enjoyed a deck party!

Eight UTD students traveled to Orlando to participate in the IIA IAEP Networking Event.  Students had a chance to join other IAEP students from around the world and present case studies over cybersecurity. Three of our students were among the top three winning teams! Companies:  Deloitte, KPMG, Southwest Airlines, Vanguard, and Liberty Mutual were in attendance. Following the networking event, the students headed straight to Kimberly Clarke headquarters and had the opportunity to network with professionals who either currently or previously worked for their internal audit department.

On October 22nd, the Internal Audit class will be presenting group projects in which they are an audit team presenting an annual risk assessment to a mock Board of Directors.  We invite members of the Dallas IIA to be in the Board of Directors and assist in judging the groups. Please contact Mark Salamasick mark.salamasick@utdallas.edu if you are interested in participating.

It’s been a busy time and continues to be so with our students volunteering at the Dallas IIA Super Conference on October 24th, and plans are in development for the 10th Annual Fraud Conference being held March 2015. Stay tuned for more information!

    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.


    Toys for Tots Drive

    Last year, the Dallas Chapter filled an entire collection box with toys and donated over $150 to Toys for Tots.   The Officer Team and Board of Governors wants to continue to make the holidays a little brighter for local children.  Please bring new/unwrapped toys to the December monthly meeting.  Monetary donations are also welcome. 

    Remember, “A Child’s smile is one of life’s greatest blessings.” Unknown Author.
