Current Sponsors

The GIC HIMSS Board of Directors would like to thank all of the sponsors who support us throughout the year. Your generous contributions help us fund our educational programs, professional development and student events, HIMSS national reception, LinkedIn site, webinars and scholarships. Without your support, our ability to provide quality programs, events and scholarships would not be possible. We hope that you find value in the investment you have made.

We continue to evaluate our sponsor program and look for new ways to enhance the benefits that each sponsorship level offers. We still have sponsorship opportunities available supporting individual educational events, event attendance, and scholarships. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any feedback or suggestions to improve our sponsorship program. Inquiries can be sent to Sponsorship.greaterillinois@himsschapter.org.
