As a professional association, SIM Chicago maintains criteria for membership and participation in events and activities sponsored.   


Note: SIM Chicago has a limited number of openings for membership opportunities available to representatives of IT equipment and service providers. There is currently a waiting list in this category. SIM adheres to a strict policy against any marketing or commercial activities and, therefore, does not accept sales, marketing, or business development representatives to its membership. Vendors may also support SIM by being a sponsor. Find more information on sponsorship opportunities click here.




SIM Chicago believes that helping to develop the next generation of IT leaders is critical to our collective future success.

To support this vision, SIM Chicago’s philanthropy program is primarily focused on developing the next generation of Information Technology professionals. This is primarily done through providing financial support to i.c.stars and the SIM Chicago Annual Scholarships for students at DePaul and Loyola. SIM Chicago also believes that giving back to the greater Chicagoland community is important. In this area, SIM Chicago provides sponsorship of Arts and Business Council of Chicago and facilitates giveback opportunities for its members working with organizations such as Feed My Starving Children and Habitat for Humanity.
