2017 Emerging Leaders

2018 Emerging Leaders

The quest for tomorrow’s internal audit leaders is on. Internal Auditor magazine will recognize up-and-coming internal audit professionals in its October 2018 issue. What defines an extraordinary internal auditor? Innovation, integrity, knowledge, passion? Do you know a high-performing internal auditor who possesses the qualities to become a thought leader in the industry? Acknowledge their dedication and nominate them.


Nominees must be members of The IIA and have, or be working toward, The IIA’s Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) certification. Self-nominations will not be accepted. The magazine will not feature more than one emerging leader from the same company. All nominees must be age 30 or younger as of Dec. 31, 2018.

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 close May 11, 2018.​

To view past emerging leaders go to “20 Under 30,” “Taking the Lead,” “On the Rise," and "On the Ri​se 2016." "On the Rise 2017​."​
