SIM Foundation V.I.P. Networking Reception 2019
May 15 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The inaugural SIM Foundation V.I.P. Networking Reception is a premier night for the national SIM community to gather with an exemplary group of senior leaders and give back to our communities. More than 200 SIM members from across the country are expected to be in attendance.
SIM has a long running commitment to support the needs of local communities — both financially and through volunteer efforts. This evening reception will celebrate SIM’s community giveback initiatives and impactful STEM-related programs.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network during cocktails, participate in live and silent auctions, interact with sponsors, and listen to an outstanding keynote. This is an evening not to be missed!
Proceeds from the event will benefit FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics, a not-for-profit public charity that helps young people pursue education and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math, while building self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills.
Dean Kamen, the founder of FIRST Robotics and a prolific inventor, entrepreneur, and tireless advocate for science and technology, will deliver a keynote address. Read Kamen’s bio
