December 2016
Name: George Slogik
SIM Role: SIM Northeast Ohio Chapter President


1. Please provide an overview of the SIM Northeast Ohio chapter.
The SIM Northeast Ohio Chapter has been around for about 20 years.  We serve north east Ohio, but draw practitioners from western Pennsylvania as well.  Most of our members are from the Cleveland area. We currently have around 80 members.

2. What are your goals for your term as the President of the SIM Northeast Ohio chapter?
Our primary goal is to re-energize and increase the engagement of our membership base. We have a common core of practitioners from year to year attending similar programs and events.  We need to shake it up, offer new programs and make NEO SIM the organization that IT leaders want to be a part of in north east Ohio.

3. What are the hottest trends in the industry? 
Internet of Things (IOT) is probably the hottest trend going now.  We just recently had a panel of experts discuss this topic at a Chapter meeting.
4. What challenges is your chapter currently facing?
Growing the membership base and finding members who are willing to dedicate time to the Chapter.

5. What is the one piece of advice you will give the next President of the SIM Northeast Ohio chapter?  
I am new in this role, so ask me again in a year.  However, I can tell you that a strong board is an important element of a successful Chapter.
