The Society for Information Management (SIM)
is a very special and eclectic community of senior IT executives, prominent
academicians, selected consultants and other IT thought leaders. It is a
non-profit organization with over 30 chapters in the United States and Canada.
It distinguishes itself through its extensive knowledge generation and
dissemination programs. In addition, it offers leadership training, networking,
philanthropic, and advocacy opportunities. SIM
was recognized by the Fortune magazine as the field’s top professional group.
A key value proposition of the SIM Atlanta Chapter (www.simatlanta.org) is the thought provoking and
intellectually stimulating discussions at the monthly meetings. In a cordial
and plush setting, a select group of senior IS practitioners and thought
leaders share ideas and practices on important IS issues. The interaction formats range from the
traditional single speaker presentations and panel discussions to the more
innovative debates and audience-as-the-panel session.
