South West committee

Welcome to the South West commitee                  

John Chesshire - South West ChairWelcome to the Chartered IIA's South West pages. We are proud of our track record providing excellent, enjoyable events that contribute to members’ professional insight and are superb value for money.

If you are a Chartered IIA member, please consider how attending a seminar or our annual conference here in the region can further your understanding and expertise in internal audit, risk management and governance. We can help you meet your CPE obligations through a range of relevant, topical and engaging events – or even by volunteering on the committee.

If you aren’t a member, please take a look at what we offer. There is something for everyone, whatever your sector, business or role, and we are always pleased to see new faces.

Thank you for visiting our site – and I hope to see you at an event soon!

John Chesshire CFIIA,  Chair
