“If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself” –Henry Ford
Holding its first meeting on January 21, 2016, the newly energized Minnesota SCIP chapter hosted over 25 local professionals. Attendees enjoyed both networking and an engaging talk by Joseph C. Chamberlain of Prime Therapeutics. Attendees had the opportunity to engage with like-minded professionals from around the area, participate in discussions and expand their professional network! All while enjoying the company of their peers in a casual environment.
The SCIP community continues to thrive globally. Over 100 chapter events took place in 2015, demonstrating the value and importance of our chapter community. Local networks continue to grow and expand. Highlights include:
- A successful chapter-specific e-series program that allowed chapters on opposite sides of the globe to come together and learn from industry expert
- Opportunities to engage with like-minded professionals and increase professional and personal networks within a local area.
- Engaging in valuable educational programming with dynamic speakers, workshops and interactive discussions on content relative to the discipline.
- Quarterly chapter-led calls that allow for collaboration and a stimulating exchange of ideas between the chapter leads on everything from sourcing speakers to finding venues to vetting content
We invite you to become involved in our SCIP community. Attend a meeting. Present a topic for discussion. Host an event.
