Thank You for Joining Us in San Diego!
Thank you for attending AHIA’s 30th Annual Conference. Great conferences aren’t created by association leaders, committees or staff—they’re created by the active participation of the people who attend. The conference attracted 448 attendees, all of whom were part of an important convergence of thought leadership in the healthcare internal auditing industry.

Within the many session and networking opportunities, conversations were started that will clearly continue beyond our time together in San Diego.  We didn't plan the Thursday afternoon power outage, but it certainly made the conference an even more memorable event. All of us at the conference were in the dark at that point (literally)... In the end, we believe all were enlightened by the education, resources and networking provided during the conference. We hope the knowledge acquired at the conference will illuminate your future healthcare internal audit efforts.

Please use one of the direct links below to view several conference resources available to attendees:

  • Conference presentations and handouts
  • Attendee List
  • Conference Evaluation
  • Continue your conference conversations on AHIA’s list serv and AHIA’s LinkedIn page.
  • Call for 2012 Annual Conference Presenters
  • COMING SOON: Due to our overabundance of attendees this year and the power outage, we realize that you might have missed a presentation due to filled-to-capacity session rooms or the two session cancellations on Friday.  The AHIA Webinar committee is already hard at work arranging encore presentations for these sessions. If you preregistered for any of those sessions, you will receive complimentary registration. We will be in touch with details soon.


We hope to see you at next year’s conference, August 26-29, 2012, in Philadelphia! Thank you for being a vital part of AHIA.
