UAE IAA, a non-profit organisation of internal auditors, was set up in 1995 and is affiliated with the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA), the internal audit profession’s most widely recognized advocate, educator, and provider of standards, guidance, and certifications, with 200,000 members from more than 190 countries and associations. The UAE accounts for about 45% of the total number of internal auditors working in the region, estimated at about 7,000 auditors, of which 22% are Emiratis.
The CAE Conference is the much sought after meeting of the UAE Internal Auditors Association (UAE IAA). The CAE conferences are specifically designed for chief audit executives to enhance their professional development and share knowledge with peers. These events are a great opportunity to share best practices, discuss hot topics, and network with others.
UAE IAA’s conferences offer an immense opportunity to network with industry leaders, some of whom are pioneers in the field of internal audit. The earlier conferences have been graced by the Who's Who in the business from all over the world.
