​We're Aware that Your Focus is Elsewhere Right Now

Each year in May, The IIA encourages members, chapters, and Affiliates around the world to celebrate internal audit accomplishments as part of International Internal Audit Awareness Month. We have much to be proud of, and “spreading the word” each May allows us to display the great value internal audit brings to organizations and the public. But, we are in uncharted territory now with the devastating coronavirus impacting virtually every corner of the globe. Our lives and jobs have been directly affected, with greater demands placed on internal auditors at all levels as we work through the short- and long-term challenges.

That’s why, this May, we’re going to respect your priorities, your commitment to helping your organizations, and postpone formal activities for Awareness Month. Focus now on what matters most, but we ask that you also pause now and then to chronicle your successes through these times, where you and your team have risen to the occasion and demonstrated the value your efforts bring to your organizations.

In a few months, we will be reaching out to you to find out about those great accomplishments, how internal audit was a beacon of light during the darkest of days. And we’ll share your stories.

Internal audit plays a vital role at all times, but especially during crises. Let’s spread the word and tell the world!
