Welcome to the Portland Chapter of the Society for Information Management (SIM)
Portland SIM's Annual Holiday Party
December 10, 2014
Annually SIM's Portland chapter holds a holiday party for its members. This is special in two regards:
It is free!
This event is totally dedicated to networking. There will not be a program.
There will be finger food, raffle prizes, and a no-host bar, so please come and enjoy the evening with friends and colleagues and celebrate a wonderful year.
This year we are adding a focus to our scholarship fund by suggesting that people dig into their pockets and donate to the cause. As you know, this is the feather in SIM Portland's cap and is the envy of other chapters.
Even if you cannot make the meeting, please, think about donating to the fund. You can do that by clicking on the donate button below.

Of course, we would really like to see you at the meeting. It is a fun and energetic event.
Regional Leadership Forum
SIM's Regional Leadership Forum (RLF) is an intensive, ten-month leadership development program focused on creating authentic leaders. Since 1992 over 3500 graduates and more than 300 sponsors have found RLF the key to developing leadership effectiveness.
We are now actively recruiting for the class of 2013. We encourage you to take advantage of the early bird pricing, which ends Nov. 30, 2012.
