The IIA's North American Board has announced the creation of the "Hall of Distinguished Audit Practitioners." I welcome this opportunity to recognize the thought and practice leaders who have contributed to our profession.
Here is an excerpt from the IIA announcement:
In order to be eligible for selection into the Hall, a nominee must have:
Served as a leader in the internal audit profession (audit professional, professor, instructor, or other service to the profession of internal auditing) for a minimum of 10 years.
Provided diligent service to their employing organization(s), as evidenced by the support afforded to them by their peers, supervisors, and staff.
Advanced the profession through thought leadership, presenting on internal audit at conferences or seminars, or service to The Institute of Internal Auditors in a leadership role.
Exemplified the finest values of those who practice internal audit through their highly ethical conduct, integrity, moral character, service and leadership.
Been nominated by at least two members of The IIA or individuals who are actively engaged in the profession.
The initial class of Hall inductees will be recognized at The IIA's General Audit Management Conference, held in Orlando, Fla. on March 19-21, 2012. No more than five practitioners will be inducted into the Hall annually, although the initial classes may include additional inductees who have made historical contributions to the profession of internal auditing throughout the past seven decades.
Nominations for the inaugural class of inductees are being accepted through December 1, 2011, with nomination forms available at www.theiia.org/hall. For further information, please contact Kevin Mayeux, The IIA's Chief of North American Operations, at email@example.com.
Who do you think should be nominated? Are you going to vote?
