Proclamations declare May Internal Audit Awareness Month
SASKATOON, May 1, 2015 /CNW/ - Citizens of Saskatchewan have been asked to recognize May 2015 as Internal Audit Awareness Month through proclamations made by the City of Regina, City of Saskatoon, and the Province of Saskatchewan. International Internal Audit Awareness month is recognized annually in May and is promoted by individual Internal Audit Departments and The Institute of Internal Auditors to raise awareness of the Internal Audit profession and the value they contribute to their organizations.
Internal Audit Departments throughout Saskatchewan will be launching Internal Audit awareness campaigns during the month of May. The focus for many departments will be debunking the myths surrounding Internal Audit and educating others about the value that Internal Audit can provide. Tied to the notion of Internal Audit departments providing value-added services within their organizations, a theme for this year's campaigns is "What can I do for YOU?"
"Our objective this year is to find fun ways to engage others in conversations about Internal Audit," said Darcie Hellman, CIA, Internal Auditor at Affinity Credit Union. "Internal Audit Awareness is about teaching others what we do, but also showing that we are approachable and that we do not fit the 'scary auditor' image that many people have in mind."
