Council of Chief Audit Executives

In an era of increased emphasis on governance, internal auditors are more visible and valued than ever. We have critical relationships with the audit committee and senior management. We walk a tightrope to maintain the right balance as independent voices inside our organizations. We discuss these questions and more:

  • Audit reporting and communication
  • The relationship between audit, compliance, and risk
  • Ethics policies

The round-robin structure of our meetings gives us all a chance to share and seek advice from one another. Members can receive CPE credits for their participation.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
