Chief Audit Executives Council

Apply Here

In an era of increased emphasis on governance, internal auditors are more visible and valued than ever. We have critical relationships with the audit committee and senior management. We walk a tightrope to maintain the right balance as independent voices inside our organizations. We discuss these questions and more:

  • Audit reporting and communication
  • The relationship between audit, compliance, and risk
  • Ethics policies

The round-robin structure of our meetings gives us all a chance to share and seek advice from one another. Members can receive CPE credits for their participation.
