Monthly Meetings/Informal Happy Hours

As SIM Austin grows, we are continuing to look for ways to add value for our Members and Friends of SIM.  Our Chapter sponsors regular programs to network, hosts social and philanthropic events to enhance the community, and acts as a forum for business and technology leaders to partner with peers.

Our monthly meetings, which are open to SIM members, friends of Austin SIM and guests, feature industry leaders and speakers, covering a variety of topics from new technologies and business opportunities to best practices as demonstrated by leading companies.  You will gain perspectives from real-life successes and failures, and understand how companies strategically respond to business challenges.  Additionally, you will have the opportunity to expand your skills and knowledge, as well as your professional network.

Our Chapter also hosts Informal Happy Hours throughout the year. It’s a perfect way to network and catch up with peers while enjoying great food, beverages and the relaxing atmosphere at various venues across the Austin area.
