Security continues to be one of the hottest topics.  Staffing and filling gaps in skills is also increasingly an area that companies are facing.

Our biggest challenge is how to grow our membership.

5. What is one piece of advice you will give the next President of the SIM St. Louis chapter?  

For any leader but specifically for St Louis, always be willing to challenge the past but ask for help and ideas from others.
