SIM Tampa Bay Restructures Board & Welcomes New Board Members

Welcome to 2021! Wishing you and your family the best in the New Year!  After an unprecedented 2020, we are looking forward to moving back into a more normal rhythm although that will not be until later in the year.  During the holiday break, we at SIM Tampa Bay have been busy reorganizing our group to better serve you.  Specifically, we have restructured the Board and added new members to take on a Voice of the Customer (VOC) orientation.

The new Board members include:

As part of the restructure, we have organized the Board around Special/Shared Interest Groups (SIG) which include:

  • SIM Tampa Bay Women
  • CIO Round Table
  • Mid-Market IT Leaders Council
  • Academic Council
  • SIM National Programs

One of our overarching objectives of this restructuring is to create more high-quality, meaningful and relevant programs for each of the areas in order to provide more value to you.  If any of the areas are of interest to you and you would like to participate as a member or volunteer to help organize, please feel free to reach out to Bill Waas at programs@simtampabay.org.

In addition to the programs specific to each of the SIGs, we will continue to have several socials during the year – Summer Social (August), Golf Tournament (October), and Holiday (December).

Again, we at SIM Tampa Bay wish you a happy and prosperous New Year!
