IIA Memphis Chapter

The Memphis Chapter of the IIA is a very diverse chapter with over 430 members in more than 86 Corporations and 10 government agencies. The IIA is the internal audit profession's global voice, recognized authority, acknowledged leader, chief advocate, and principal educator. Generally, members work in internal auditing, risk management, governance, internal control, information technology audit, education, and security.  We offer monthly training classes from September to May each year, with additional full day and half day seminars to provide many training opportunities. The Memphis Chapter also hosts an Annual Student Day meeting that features a Chief Audit Executive Roundtable to help students learn more about the profession and what employers are looking for in internal audit candidates.
