2020 General Audit Management Conference

March. 16–18, 2020 / Las Vegas, NV

Register Early So You Don’t Miss Out

The conference theme, 2020 Vision — Influencing the Next Decade of Internal Audit, and its high-quality, cost-effective program, is uniquely focused on supporting the professional growth and development of our emerging and seasoned internal audit leaders through education, strategic insight, peer-to-peer engagement, and takeaways for positive outcomes.

GAM is considered the “must attend” conference for internal audit leaders. Attendee surveys rave about the interactive formats — In Conversation With, Tools and Techniques, and Panel sessions — designed to impart strategies and valuable takeaways that are immediately applicable.

With 40 general and concurrent sessions, featuring world-renowned presenters, focused on 5 educational tracks, and providing 16.5 CPE credits, GAM is Where Leaders Evolve.
