Corporate (Enterprise) and SIM Partner
SIM's Corporate Membership offers employers an opportunity to extend the benefits of SIM membership throughout their company, offering increased networking, education and idea exchange opportunities. Organizations with three or more qualified professionals may want to consider Enterprise Membership.
SIM's Partner Program fosters teamwork and an on-going intellectual exchange between senior IT executives and industry product/service providers. Through this program, SIM members have the opportunity to develop relationships with vendors in a non-threatening environment. SIM Partners provide benefit to the membership through their vendor-neutral white papers and webinars, sponsorship of local and national events, and demonstration of thought leadership within the chapters. SIM Partners and members share the common goal of continuous advancement within the IT industry, and SIM is the catalyst for this community of thought leaders to share experiences and rich intellectual capital that can help to shape the future of IT.
Further information about Enterprise and SIM Partner memberships is available at www.simnet.org. Enterprise and SIM Partner membership applicants must fill out membership applications for both SIMI and SIM NJ. Acceptance by SIMI does not guarantee membership to SIM NJ. Each Enterprise or Partner applicant must be approved locally by SIM NJ subject to local requirements and quotas of membership types.
