Chairman’s Message — January 9, 2013


Scott White
FSA Board Chairman

 FSA Times Home Page

On behalf the Financial Services Advisory Board (FSAB), I would like to wish everyone a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year! While our hopes for 2013 are high, the business environment will be challenging to say the least — increasing regulations, Affordable Health Care Act implementation, and the looming possibility of another recession are just a few of the issues. As internal auditors, we need to stay on top of these risks and be prepared to align our audit program to face these challenges.


To help FSA members address these risks and prepare you for what lies ahead, the Board and the webinar subcommittee have been busy planning the 2013 webinars lineup. By now you should have received an email from The IIA announcing our first webinar on January 10 — “Current Trends in Financial Institution Fraud.” Mike Thomas from Crowe Horwath will discuss current trends in financial institution fraud and offer some suggestions regarding how to help fight occupational wrongdoing. 


The 2013 webinars lineup is available on the FSA Group’s members-only Web page. Topics include updates on the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, IT governance, compliance, and enterprise risk management. These webinars are free to FSA members, so mark your calendars in advance for opportunities to earn continuing professional education (CPE) credits. We appreciate all the hard work Ed Weiss and the webinar subcommittee put into developing the program for 2013.


Previous webinars also are available on demand on the FSA Web page but do not qualify for CPE credits. If you have any suggestions for future webinar topics or are interested in presenting a future webinar, please contact Membership Development at

Warmest regards,

Scott White, CIA, CFSA
Financial Services Advisory Board Chairman
