Dear Association Members and Friends,

It is with great excitement and support that I turn over the role as President to my friend and colleague, Mr. Stephen Street, Inspector General, State of Louisiana, as of January 1, 2015.

I would also like to extend a heartfelt welcome to the newly elected Officers of the Association and members of the Board of Directors. I look forward to continuing to work with you.

It has truly been an honor to serve as your National President for these last four years, and I am exceedingly proud of all that we have accomplished. It has been a wonderful journey.

I am pleased to report that the Inspector General community that we serve is growing and becoming increasingly effective in advancing our vision of integrity and accountability in government through independent oversight. Our Inspector General Institute® has never been stronger, as this year alone we certified over 200 inspectors general, investigators and auditors.
