The Institute of Internal Auditors announced the election of a newly structured global board of directors for 2019-20, including veteran internal auditor J. Michael Joyce as global chairman.

Joyce has more than 36 years of professional experience and has been an active IIA volunteer since 1989, including serving as senior vice chairman of the global board (2018-19) and chairman of the North American board (2015-16). He is vice president, chief auditor, and compliance officer for Blue Cross Blue Shield Association.

Joyce presides over the first 17-member global board to take office under a new governance structure designed to ensure a modern, efficient, informed, and relevant body able to respond quickly to global developments. The board previously comprised 38 members.
