July 2018 SIM Cleveland Summer Networking Party

SIM Cleveland members and potential members joined together at Goldhorn Brewery on the beautiful Summer evening of July 18 to network with fellow Cleveland-area IT leaders. Plenty of creative ideas and anecdotes were traded over casual conversation, craft beer, and appetizers. We received a lot of good feedback on how enjoyable the event was. SIM Cleveland will most likely be doing more of these types of events and we would encourage you to make time to attend in the future. In addition, we are actively looking to grow our membership. Please consider reaching out to fellow potential members and bring them along as your guests, to future events.
