UTD had a number of events in November that were a big success due to the Dallas Chapter's assistance. We hosted an open house reception to kickoff the program with the Chapter members on November 18. The program included food, drinks, drawing for prizes, a tour of the new School of Management, and a short program to introduce the internal audit program. We would especially like to thank Amberly Ruble and Pamela Krakosky for assisting with the event. On November 20, a panel of current and ex-auditors served on a panel to describe their experiences in Internal Audit. This program was open to students of all majors to inform them that Internal Auditors come from many different backgrounds.
Guest speakers this past month included Courtenay Thompson on “What Auditors and Executive Mangers Need to Know about Fraud.” We also spent a Saturday reviewing for the CIA exam as the students made the final push to pass the November exam. The class is also completing the fieldwork and audit report with the UTD Internal Audit group.
The Dallas Chapter IIA meeting will be hosted at UTD on December 9 with assistance provided by the student chapter. The meeting will be in a little different format that will allow for additional networking for members. At 11:15 a.m., an hour will be designated for lunch and social time that will be held in various rooms within the School of Management. The Chapter business meeting and presentation will follow.
The new Endorsed Internal Audit Program is also designed to meet the needs of those employees transferring from other areas of the company to an internal audit role. The program also encourages audit practitioners who want to learn current audit techniques and prepare for the CIA exam. If you are have interest in such a program please contact Mark Salamasick at 972-883-4729 or to learn more about the program visit http://citm.utdallas.edu/eiap.

activities during 2004 or would like to provide assistance, please contact
