You are invited to the 2017 Chapter Leader Summit, hosted by SIM Chicago. Summit 2017 will be held at the beautiful Sheraton Grand Chicago on April 20-21, 2017.

Chapter Leader Summit is one of the key events on the SIM calendar for Chapter Leaders, and we work hard to bring great topics, interesting speakers, and actionable take-aways for SIM's leaders.

The Chapter Leader Summit is an exclusive event, and attendance is restricted to current Chapter Board members, the national Board, and the Management Council. There is no registration fee for this event.

This is a great opportunity for you to learn about what other Chapters are doing, influence the national agenda, and weigh in on our future direction. We will be very focused on technology this year, and we want to discuss our future member and how we connect with future members. We are also planning topics on growth, retention and governance. We take what you say at Summit and use it through the rest of the year as planning guidance.

Agenda: Please send your ideas for topics of discussion or agenda items to Steve at before March 1st. We are planning Chapter breakout sessions this year, where you can provide your lessons learned, best practices and successes in a structured format. If you're interested in presenting your Chapter on a preset list of topics (sponsorship approach, Board governance, financial management practices, Board succession, etc.), let Steve know before March 1st. We will select the Chapters for breakouts on March 15th.

Summit is where Chapters can talk to each other, so let Steve know what you want to hear about from other Chapters.

We will welcome SIM's attorney, Paula Goedert, for a discussion on the duty of the Chapter Board, good governance, and the importance of bylaws. Paula spoke to our group in 2011, and she was very well received, so we are excited to host her again.

11:30 AM: Lunch
12 – 5 PM: Summit main session
6 PM: Dinner and entertainment, hosted by Chicago Chapter

Friday, April 21
