Seeking IIA Leadership Candidates for 2015-2016

2015-2016 Nominations closed November 3, 2014

The IIA is now seeking leadership candidates for 2015–2016.​

With 180,000 members in nearly 190 countries, The IIA provides dynamic leadership for the global profession of internal auditing. Volunteers play a key role and the contributions they make impact the day-to-day functions of internal auditors, as well as shape the future of the internal audit profession.

The IIA is seeking qualified members to serve in the following leadership roles:

  • Executive Officers
  • Board of Directors
  • North American Board
  • The IIA Research Foundation Board of Trustees
  • 15 Committees comprising 250 members
  • District Advisors and Representatives (North America only)
  • American Center for Government Auditing (ACGA) Advisory Board (U.S. only)

Candidates should have relevant expertise and the ability to participate in the leadership of The IIA. Nominations are accepted from IIA Institutes and chapters, IIA members who know of interested candidates, or candidates themselves. However, more weight is usually given to nominations endorsed by an Institute or chapter.

Nominations for 2015-2016 should be completed and submitted electronically by November 3, 2014. If you are elected or appointed to serve, your term will begin in April 2015 or July 2015 with the exception of the ACGA Advisory Board, for which terms will begin in January 2015.

It is recommended that candidates have the support of their local chapter or Institute. Therefore, any self-nominations submitted will receive a confirmation email that contains a link directly to your nomination. This link can be forwarded to other members and/or leaders that you would like to ask to support/endorse your nomination.
