Dear Professional Colleagues,

At the outset let me be the first to wish you for 2016 a satisfying & rewarding professional year. There is an old saying, viz. You create your own experience of life. Through a suite of member services we hope to give you the opportunity to create your own experience of the internal audit profession & the community.
