SIM Charlotte – President’s Message (2020/2021):


The SIM Charlotte Region Chapter is the preeminent community of senior technology executives in the Carolinas centered in Charlotte. The Chapter also serves Columbia, Greenville, Charleston, and Rock Hill in South Carolina and Asheville, Gastonia, Hickory and Winston Salem in North Carolina.


SIM Charlotte is where IT professionals connect, learn, and grow in order to lead.  Relationship building, learning opportunities and community outreach in the form of STEM education are the three pillars of the organization. These three pillars combine to create a vibrant network that strengthens the entire region and contributes to the economic engine that powers Charlotte and the surrounding areas.


In addition to the local resources, SIM Charlotte members draw on a vast wealth of connections and offerings from the SIM National level.


In the next year, we’ll continue the “Leading Digital Disruption” programming series which offers unique insights and pragmatic discussions around real world challenges and opportunities. These insights will deepen one's understanding of how to compete effectively in a world of new business models and differentiate one's leadership in a crowded market.


We’ll be adding more programming and offer more informal networking opportunities while building upon last year’s successes. Contact our Membership Co-Chairs, Alice Grove and John Murdock, to find out how to best engage with our organization.


Connect. Learn. Grow. Lead.
