The INCOSE Chesapeake Chapter’s July 20, 2011 meeting had a record breaking attendance with 54 for dinner and 73 for the speaker. But several business items were attended to prior to the main event.

  • Paul B Martin, Communications Officer, demonstrated the chapters comprehensive website. Including the SEY section which is seeking nominations.
  • John Lewis, President, presented a $2000 check to the Dr. William Ewald for the INCOSE Foundation is a charitable organization with the stated goal of advancing the development and image of systems engineering through funded scholarships, research, and international forums. Our Chapter sponsors three $500 scholarships to three local Engineering schools, UMBC, UMCP, and JHU. The Chesapeake Chapter is proud to donate to such a worthy cause. Learn more about the Foundation, its mission, and the several scholarships they offer, through the web-page at the corporate INCOSE website.
  • Gundars Osvalds, President-Elect, gave the members an account of the INCOSE International Symposium at Denver this past June. He said the lectures, tutorials, and meetings were all great. He suggested that those who didn’t go to IS2011 to buy the Proceedings at the INCOSE Store in order to get the latest in Systems Engineering research and trends. The best part was receiving the Gold Circle award and the Most Improved Performance award.
  • John Lewis made it clear that George Anderson, Past-President, was the reason we received these awards. George asked the entire Board and Committee Members to come up for a photo-op.
  • John Lewis explained the Ambassadors program where organizations help sponsor our Chapters endeavors. If your company can be involved please contact John at John.Lewis@incose.org.
  • George Anderson explained that there is a proposal to change the Chapter’s Bylaws to allow for electronic voting. See details >>HERE<<. He also reminded the members that Election for next year’s Board of Directors. All Chapter members in good standing are encouraged to run for any open position. More details will be coming.
