SCSIM Virtual Forum of Challenges Related to the Covid-19 Crisis

Community matters during this difficult time. As we all struggle to deal with the current crisis, the SCSIM community is here to support you. Our board met on Thursday, March 26, to discuss how we can all help our SCSIM practitioner community respond to the COVID-19 health and economic crisis.

As a result, we are scheduling a series of virtual discussions, where SCSIM board members will host a discussion of the challenges that are facing us at this time. The sessions are free; however, each session is limited to 50 participants, so we encourage you to sign up soon for the sessions that are most interesting to you!

Featured Event


Firesides are a new SCSIM program designed to benefit members below the CIO level. Each Fireside meeting enables members to socialize with peers, learn new ideas and build their networks.

SCSIM Events


SCSIM’s Programs team prepares two major forums annually with great keynote speakers and panelists. Forum themes include IT leadership, trends or disruptive technology topics including cybersecurity, artificial intelligence and digital transformation. 

Our next forum is the 2019 Southern California CIO Executive Leadership Summit on Oct. 8, 2019, co-produced by SCSIM and HMG Strategy.

CIO Enclaves

In 2015, SCSIM launched a new program of quarterly evening roundtables—called CIO Enclaves—for CIOs and CTOs. Executive leaders from eight CIO Enclaves meet in Santa Monica, the Conejo and San Fernando valleys, Orange County, DTLA, Long Beach, South Bay and Pasadena. 

Between 10-18 peer CIOs enjoy dinner in an intimate setting and discuss what’s working, what’s not, and how they can help each other.

2019 SCSIM Holiday Social - December 7, 2019

SCSIM hosted its second annual Holiday Social on December 7, 2019 at the Windsor Salon in Long Beach. The event included dinner, live entertainment, a fun-packed “casino” and opportunities to meet new friends. One of our SCSIM members, Tim Moran, CIO and CTO of Media, Entertainment & Technology LLC, performed with his instrumental jazz band.

With two subsets of our members launching at venues in summer of 2018 in Los Angeles and in Orange counties, Firesides are an SCSIM program designed specifically for all the rising IT leaders reporting up to the CIO.  

Firesides will be more intimate than our Forums, and will take on many forms: town hall discussions, keynote presentations, panel discussions or interviews of guest CXOs, innovators or industry leaders.
