CEO Message: Envisioning the Next 80 Years

Digital Anthony Pugliese, CIA, CPA, CGMA, CITP Nov 30, 2021

As a professional association, we are obligated to our members to provide vision, mission, and leadership that will keep the profession growing and vibrant into the 22nd century.

​This month, The IIA celebrates its 80th anniversary as the internal audit profession's principal advocate, educator, and provider of standards, guidance, and certifications. It's probably safe to assume that those who gathered in December 1941 to create a professional association for internal auditors could not have imagined the complexity of today's risks: those associated with cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, blockchain, cryptocurrency, ESG, and so much more.
