About SIM Boston

SIM is Where IT Leaders Connect

SIM Boston is the oldest and largest chapter of the Society for Information Management.  We are a volunteer-led not-for-profit professional organization of IT leaders that are passionate about coming together to share experiences, lessons learned, and to give back to our community.   

3 Pillars of SIM Boston

Networking: To amplify our effectiveness.

A strong personal network is a super power... it amplifies the knowledge and effectiveness of any given individual. SIM Members use their networks to surface personal and professional opportunities, keep up on technology trends, connect with people working on similar kinds of problems, and reach out for and provide help to others. 

Professional Development: For growing personal capacity.

We believe that growing as an individual is critical to leaders in technology, building our individual capacity in leadership, and trends in technology helps keep us sharp, and able to deliver value to the companies we work for.

Outreach: To make sure the talent will exist when we need it.

SIM Boston focuses on STEM Outreach specifically, we understand how difficult it is to fill the talent pipeline.  The investments we make as a chapter guiding young people into Science and Technology careers helps to ensure that we will have the talent and future leaders our industry needs in 10-15 years.
