  • Knowledge Center – Now combined with the Resource Library, the Knowledge Center contains all the tools, templates, audit programs, plans, and other resource documents, including thought leadership.
  • My Benefits – Links to all of your benefits is available on the home page as well as throughout the website.
  • Audit Executive Center LinkedIn Group – By popular demand, the former discussion forums have been replaced by the invitation-only Audit Executive Center LinkedIn subgroup.
  • Quick Links to Other IIA Resource Centers – Quickly access the most CAE-relevant IIA resources from the Center’s home page, including the COSO Resource Center, IIA Standards and Guidance, and Quality Assurance.
  • Webinar Archive – Playbacks of the Audit Executive Center’s exclusive webinars are now just a click away.

 “The benefit of the Center is that they empower me to do my job more effectively by giving me a competitive advantage with opportunities to get access to information that other CAEs do not have. They do a tremendous job in streamlining information into an easy-to-read format.”
