On Tuesday September 25th , the North Carolina Chapter of the Society for Information Management (NC-SIM) held its 3rd Annual Golf & Learn event at Devil’s Ridge Country Club in Holly Springs, NC. 
Over 60 IT leaders and professionals, including several NC State alumni, took part in the annual fundraiser.
During a reception following the event, NC-SIM President Jon Meyer, presented Ken Tate, director of development & external relations for the NC State Department of Computer Science, a ceremonial check in the amount of $5,000.
