INCOSE connect is a great resource for INCOSE members. It gives you access to a lot of professional Systems Engineering knowledge, a collaborative forum to work on international Systems Engineering working groups and a place to find out what INCOSE BOD is doing for it’s members and chapters.
To access it though you need to know your INCOSE username this is usually: first.lastname mine is John.Walker. I scanned our chapter data base and this is true for almost every active chapter member. The next thing you need to know is your INCOSE password. I have been a member so long I don’t remember how I first got mine but I did forget it at times and needed to get it reset. If you don’t know your password then you will need to get it reset also. The direct web link is: http://www.incose.org/membership/requestPWreset.cfm which brings up a page looking like this:
After you request the password reset a new password will be sent to you email address in the INCOSE database. If you have any questions about your username or email address on file please contact any chapter Board of Directors members who can look it up for you. Good luck and good connecting

INCOSE Board of Directors
Greetings! I hope this finds you doing well and enjoying the first months of 2011 and hints of warmer weather.
We had a fantastic year in 2010. We accomplished our goals, engaged in new activities, and started shaping our vision for the future. Many thanks goes to our outgoing president, Steve McKeown, for leading our Chapter in achieving these successes. Steve put his heart and soul into strengthening the INCOSE presence in Southern Maryland and delivering systems engineering best practices to the community. Thank you, Steve, for your professionalism, leadership, and time educating our community and members.
With the close of the elections, we welcome new leadership and several new faces to the Board of Directors. Thank you to those who took the time to organize and elect this year’s leadership. We are eager to roll up our sleeves and bring quality discussions to our chapter.
In discussing the chapter’s focus for 2011, many voiced the desire to understand more about Unmanned Systems (UxS) and their integration into our Nation’s defense. Not only is the systems engineering of the unmanned system a current community challenge, integrating that system onto our ships and into our networks is just as daunting. Several of this year’s discussions will center around the interoperability challenges and what the Department of Defense and Industry is doing to solve the problems.
Additionally, we want to be sure our members are informed of systems engineering in the local community. Areas such as biometrics, cloud computing, energy and infrastructure are all areas we want to explore. As systems engineers, we want to address how these technology advances are utilizing disciplined processes to interface with existing systems and generate enhanced capabilities.
Your inputs and suggestions are always welcome. This is our organization, and we want to be sure the topics that interest our members are available. INCOSE provides a forum for continuous education, and your 2011 leadership is excited about the opportunity to enhance your professional growth.
We look forward to serving you!
