Dear Association Members and Friends,
I hope you enjoyed the summer. July and August were very busy for the Association, as we completed our 2014/15 membership drive, conducted our summer 2014 Inspector General Institute® and planned for the October 22-24, 2014 National Training symposium in Newark, NJ. Here are some of the highlights:
First, based on preliminary numbers, I’m pleased to report that we now have over 1,100 members of the Association. It is clear that the professionals working within the inspector general community recognize the value that the Association provides through our training and networking opportunities. The Association is dedicated to serving the growing inspector general community, and we are very gratified by the support that we continue to receive through your membership.
Second, our Inspector General Institute® in Jacksonville, FL, was an unqualified success. We had 116 auditors, investigators and inspectors general earn their certifications from the Association. This was our largest Institute to date, and we are now busy planning the 2015 winter Institute. We should be announcing the dates and location in September. The next issue of the IG News, will be dedicate to reporting on the Jacksonville Institute.
Finally, we are very excited about our upcoming National Training symposium to be held in Newark, NJ from October 22 to 24. We are offering an exciting array of presentations on a wide variety of subjects delivered by experts in their respective fields. The presentations will cover germane topics ranging from Cyber Security to OIG Press Relations, and a special emphasis will be placed on the burgeoning field of Data Analytics.
The Training Symposium will be our largest event of the year. We anticipate well over 200 attendees at Newark representing the broad spectrum of the IG community. This annual event offers a unique opportunity to network with a wide array of oversight professionals, share information and best practices, and learn about the hot topics and trends that IG offices currently face.
