    STL IIA Members –

    Happy New Year and

    welcome to 2016!!! I hope

    everyone enjoyed the

    Holiday break and you

    were able to recharge the

    battery. Each New Year

    brings a chance to start

    over, to develop new

    habits, and continue to

    improve our personal and

    professional resume. The

    IIA offers a great

    opportunity with the latter.

    Whether it is a new

    certification (CIA, CRMA,

    CCSA, CGAP, or the

    CFSA) – plenty of

    choices, or maybe you

    have some passion for our

    profession and are looking

    for a place to get involved

    – we are that place!!

    Please reach out to me

    and I will personally find

    you a committee that

    accommodates your

    goals.

    I am extremely excited

    with the training

    opportunities we have this

    Spring! Our January

    Ethics meeting is going to

    be fresh and exciting with

    the Panel we have put

    together – Don’t Miss Out

    on your chance to get

Enron’s former CFO will make observations about how the ambiguity and complexity of laws and regulations breeds opportunity for problematic decisions and will discuss what questions corporate directors, management, attorneys, and accountants should ask in order to ensure that their companies not only follow the rules, but uphold the principles behind them.
