Member Benefits

There are a number of reasons why professionals join SIPMA.

SIPMA meets on the third Thursday of each month, except in April, when the SIPMA annual conference is held in lieu of a monthly meeting, July, August, and December. An informal gathering that allows for excellent networking opportunities usually precedes meetings. The meetings begin at 5:30 p.m. with a social time and dinner, followed by a business meeting, speaker presentation or company tour, and a legislative update. A question and answer session follows each program. Our June meeting ends the year with a fun celebration of all the hard work that we have accomplished throughout the year. In the past we have done all sorts of things for this meeting such as winery events, picnics and murder mystery dinners.

SIPMA meetings are held at some of the finest restaurants in Southern Illinois!  Members are notified in advance via email with the location and the agenda for upcoming meetings.
