    Amazon HQ2: What does it mean for our companies and communities?

    Jan 23, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
    With Amazon’s recent choice of Northern Virginia as the site of one of two major new headquarters and with the prospect of 25,000 new jobs, how will all this change affect the DC region? How will this impact tech hiring and tech wages, startups and secondary businesses in the area? What will it mean to innovation with the creation of Virginia Tech's new innovation center? How can tech leaders embrace these changes and thrive? SIMCAC welcomes all current and eligible prospective members to join us for an evening of networking, cocktails, heavy appetizers, and a lively panel discussion at Virginia Tech's Research Center Arlington.

    Applying Emerging Technologies to Improve Your Business

    Feb 20, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM
    We sometimes read about emerging technologies and wonder how, or if, these new approaches will benefit my organization. The SIM Advanced Practices Council (APC) consists of 30-35 CIOs nationwide who participate in directing research into emerging technologies and share the results of applying those technologies with each other. At our February event, we are fortunate to have a panel of SIM APC members who will share how they are using several new technologies in their organizations to either improve effectiveness, reduce costs or be more agile in the marketplace. This is a must attend event as these CIOs will be sharing real experiences with technologies like Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and Robotic Automation.
