March 2015
Name: Angelo Morello 
SIM Role: Central Connecticut President


1. Please provide an overview of the SIM Central Connecticut chapter.


2. What are your goals for your term as the President of the SIM Central Connecticut chapter?
My overarching goal is to create an environment where our members are actively engaged with great content, events and networking opportunities provided within the chapter.

3. What are the hottest trends in the industry? 

From my view, the hottest trends we are facing as IT professionals are:
  • Leadership – current and future generations
  • Hyper-change driven by exponential evolution of technology and data
These two topics are creating complex challenges on keeping current operations stable, rethinking IT’s role within an organization while delivering next generational systems and services within our companies. 



4. What challenges is your chapter currently facing? 

We have two key challenges.  

Engaging our executive members on topics that are relevant and critical to their current and evolving corporate environments.  We believe establishing and nurturing a peer network environment is vital to the long term viability of the Chapter.  

Our second challenge is converting RLF graduates to active membership within our Chapter.  Our current conversion ratio is requires a candid discussion with the existing members and corporate sponsors in order to gain insight on how we can strengthen the value proposition regarding ongoing Chapter engagement.




5. What is the one piece of advice you will give the next President of the SIM Central Connecticut chapter? 
Develop a clear vision that will become the rallying cry for your chapter and then ensure your fellow board members compliment your skills.  A leaders strength is not demonstrated by what they can do; rather by the team they assemble around them.  I am fortunate that our prior president, Joe Tait, had the fortitude to drive a strategy and focus on continuous improvement.  We are building on his and other leaders before him.
