Members in Transition (MIT)

Chair: Kristen Lamoreaux

The purpose of the SIM MIT is to support our fellow Philadelphia SIM members that are currently in transition. Conducting a job search involves a great deal of research, coordination, networking, sales and marketing. Our weekly calls will follow a structured open forum where members can come together to discuss their searches and any challenges they’re facing. In addition to our weekly calls, we have a monthly Helpers call where sitting CIOs and Executive Search professionals join our call to assist our MIT members. MIT members can contact Helpers outside of the calls as well. Our program also includes coordinating Helping Hands for MIT members interested in pro bono consulting, national MIT efforts, and arranging breakfast meetings and webinars as requested.
