Audit Conference

The 20th Annual ASQ Audit Division Conference will be held on October 27-28, 2011 at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino in Reno, NV. The theme is, “Place Your Bets on a Conference and Celebration to Remember. Solid Legacy and Influential Future.”
The 20th Annual ASQ Audit Conference will be a “celebration” to honor 20 years of establishing an auditing foundation for excellence, with a brilliant outlook for the future. While there is a “solid legacy” for audit performance, the future of the profession is highly “influential.”

Join the attendees as we honor, acknowledge, and celebrate the contributions of the Audit Division membership, auditing professionals, educators, authors, conference presenters, conference attendees, and supporters. With two decades of success, this year promises to be the best ‘deal’ in town.

The Keynote Speakers will be:

Allan J. Sayle: “Auditing – Its Greatest Challenge Ever Lies Ahead”. A reality check in which Allan considers various technological, business, and global changes that have occurred since the first audit conference of 1992 and their effects on present day business under performance of our organizations.

Jeff Fossum: “Changing Audit Perceptions – Can We Trust Ourselves with Quality”. A real case scenario referencing the redesign of Booz Allen Hamilton’s System Delivery Quality Management program in 2010 that focused on cost reduction, standards and process compliance, product quality improvement, and effective risk management for a 3,500 person, $1B systems business.

Sipho Tjabadi: “Challenges of Quality Assurance on South Africa’s biggest Capital Expansion Program – the Eskom Case.” The program is arguably the biggest on the African Continent, the Southern Hemisphere and by a single entity. The challenges are enormous, especially against the background that the last major power station was constructed two decades ago. This emphasized the need for a pro-active approach from Eskom with regard to Quality Management of its new build program.

Mark Twain (Layne McAvoy) will provide a History of the Audit Division, in his own creative way, and expand on our Theme: “Solid Legacy and Influential Future.”

The Extensive Technical Program spans across multiple disciplines providing something for everyone, including: internal auditing techniques, best practices, tools, medical devices, methodologies in design and construction, consulting, internal audit requirements, corrective action, and much more.
