- Ms. Nicholls' presentation at the 67th Annual Conference of the Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA) at George Moscone Conference Center in San Francisco was very well received. She was pleasant and professional throughout. We look forward to working with her to convert the speech into another IIA occasional paper due to the many requests for copies.
