Musicians.  Athletes. Artists. Philanthropists. Parents. Grandparents.  This photo, taken recently at our SIM Board dinner, illustrates well the benefits of membership in SIM.  During the night together, we celebrated family achievements, supported career transitions, grieved for friends' loss, and shared in our respective life journeys.  

The tag line "Where IT Leaders Connect" is the abiding philosophy for SIM.  We host monthly social events and sponsor philanthropic works for our members.   Moreover, we provide a forum to connect and opportunity to help our members grow.

Leadership in any capacity can be a lonely role.  Our membership is composed of hundreds of leaders in Chicago responsible for technology and business decisions, often with millions (if not billions) at stake.  Risks, corporate pressures, and ambitions all factor in.     

Finding like-minded, experienced, and supportive friends is something you find in the SIM organization.  Unlike other membership organizations in town focused solely on glitz and glamour events - SIM provides our members a place to find kindred spirits, exceptional advisors, and those who want to share their journey with you.  

In the next weeks, the Spring season begins for our members.   CIO roundtables, our Spring gala, expert speakers, and philanthropic events are all scheduled.   For our membership, the chance to connect is here once again.   We look forward to seeing you soon, and sharing a bit of your journey together.
