Inaugural Meeting of the SoCal IDEA User Group - from Leslie Townsend of Edwards Lifesciences and Tim Smith of LPL Financial
Data analytics and the ability to look at 100 percent of a population are becoming the norm in many aspects of conducting an audit or review. A number of studies have indicated that this is a crucial skill set for IT auditors, as well as internal and external auditors. For those of you in Southern California who have an interest in developing, maintaining, or increasing your skills with IDEA, we think it is time to establish an IDEA Independent User Group.
To that end, we invite you to a planning meeting to discuss the format, subjects, timing and other aspects of an Independent IDEA Users Group being co-led by two North American IDEA User Group speakers. Since the initial meeting size is limited, even if you are planning on bringing a number of members of your team to future meetings, please limit attendance from your organization at the kickoff.
