The SIM Executive Leadership Retreat

The SIM Executive Leadership Retreat is an event for CIOs, CTOs, and senior technology and digital leaders designed to create intentional opportunities for you to connect with your peers and recharge. Learn from the shared experiences of thought leaders on the most pressing topics confronting technology leadership in our rapidly diversifying and evolving environment. This highly interactive event will equip you to be an exceptional leader in an executive environment and a better strategic driver for your organization.  
Our first day will be exclusive to our SIM Community. On the second day, SIM and TechServe Alliance will co-host the Tech Talent Forum, a collaborative deep-dive exploration of the perennial talent challenge in IT & engineering staffing. 

Our entire event will celebrate the values and generosity of the SIM and TechServe Alliance communities. Each day will feature opportunities to give back through the SIM Foundation. All funds donated to the SIM Foundation will support nonprofits like FIRST and NPower. 

Full registration includes admission to all events on the agenda.
