The Institute of Internal Auditors (IIA)donated $10,000 to the National September 11 Memorial and Museum during its annual International Conference in Manhattan. Josh Cherwin, director of Institutional Advancement for the Memorial and Museum, accepted the donation from IA International Conference co-chairs Nick DiMola and Paul Flora.

“The senseless attacks of 9/11 have indelibly marked New York City in the hearts of most Americans," said IIA president and CEO Richard Chambers, at the conference. "Its response to those horrific events has strengthened its image as a city that stands as a beacon of freedom and opportunity. Our donation honors the memory of those who were lost, and supports New York’s resilience in the face of tragedy.”

The IIA is currently holding its annual International Conference in Manhattan from July 17-20. This year marks the Conference's 75th anniversary, with the first occurring in 1941.
