Internal Audit Awareness Month: More Than Just Talking the Talk
In his blog, IIA President and CEO Richard Chambers, CIA, QIAL, CGAP, CCSA, CRMA, shares his personal reflections and insights on the internal audit profession. Here's an excerpt from his latest post:
I was thrilled to announce recently that The IIA surpassed 200,000 members. This momentous milestone couldn't have come at a better time as we enter International Internal Audit Awareness Month, our annual, globally coordinated effort to raise awareness about our wonderful profession.
The IIA, along with its North American chapters and more than 100 affiliated institutes around the world, will be promoting the value that internal auditing brings to fostering stronger risk management, internal control, and corporate governance.
