Speakers: The SIM WI Board & You

Our February meeting was a great session!! We learned and experienced a "positive” approach to change, called Appreciative Inquiry, from our speaker, Dr. Mary Jo Greil. Not only did it suggest tools that each of us could use in our day-to-day jobs, but provided the meeting attendees and the Board of SIM Wisconsin with some very key insights into how the chapter might grow and flourish. Based on this, the March meeting (Wednesday, March 4th) will be devoted to:

  • communicating the 2009 SIM Wisconsin Chapter focus
  • soliciting membership input on future topics & events
  • discussion of "networking” and it’s value to Chapter members

In a Board planning session late last year, we concluded that the Chapter focus for 2009 ought to be educating students on IT Career opportunities. There are many different reasons for this, and they will be described in an introduction to the March meeting. The statistics on the IT workforce, IT college enrollment and the potential impact of "baby boomer” retirements alone provide a compelling case for action. Bob Horton of the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater will provide us with some timely insights that helped the Board choose this as our focus for 2009.

Following that presentation, we will form break-out groups to discuss each of the three topics identified above.

Please join us at a session that will both provide learning opportunities and the ability to help shape future directions of your Chapter. We need your input and suggestions to create purposeful and informative meetings that will meet your specific needs.
