Emerging Leaders

 

Internal Auditor's Emerging Leaders

Yearly, in its October issue, Internal Auditor magazine recognizes Emerging Leaders in the internal audit profession.

These extraordinary up-and-coming internal auditors display innovation, business acumen, and passion for the profession.

What to know:

  • ​Self-nominations or nominations from family members are not accepted.
  • Nominees must be members of The IIA and have, or be working toward, The IIA's Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) certification.
  • The magazine will not feature more than one emerging leader from the same company. 
  • All nominees must be age 30 or younger as of December of the nominating year.
  • All nomination material becomes the property of Internal Auditor magazine. By submitting a nomination, you grant The IIA a license to publish the nomination material in Internal Auditor magazine.
  • Those chosen as emerging leaders will be interviewed for the article. By agreeing to be interviewed, nominees grant The IIA permission to use their quotes in other materials.
  • The emerging leaders will be asked to participate in various IIA initiatives throughout the following year to help bring forth the voice of The IIA's young professionals.

Nominations open April 1 of each year.
