You are invited to 2015 Chapter Leader Summit! The Las Vegas Chapter is our host this year at the beautiful Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in the heart of the strip on April 16-17, 2015.

Chapter Leader Summit is one of the key events on the SIM calendar for Chapter Leaders, and we work hard to bring great topics, interesting speakers, and actionable take-aways for SIM's leaders.

The Chapter Leader Summit is an exclusive event, and attendance is restricted to current Chapter Board members, the national Board, and the Management Council. We are developing an agenda that includes key information for you to use to grow your Chapter, engage with your members, and learn from other Chapters. We will have updates for you on the strategy work we're doing, and we are planning to have breakout sessions again this year to dive into several topics. This is an excellent opportunity for you to give us your guidance and perspective. We take what you say at Summit and turn it into plans that everyone can use.
