Proclaiming May as International Internal Audit Awareness Month

International Internal Audit Awareness Month is almost here, and internal auditors everywhere are stepping up their efforts to celebrate and promote awareness of the profession in their workplace and in the greater business community.

Last year, several IIA chapters received proclamations from local government officials recognizing May as Internal Audit Awareness Month, including Ak-Sar-Ben, Nebraska; Central Virginia; Sacramento, Calif.; and Winnipeg, Canada, among others. This year, the following ambitious chapters have already received proclamations: Hawaii; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Vancouver and Vancouver Island, Canada!
