members, leveraging my leaership experience at both the chapter and
international levels. I want to ensure we make the next critical step in
our journey, to better empower our volunteers, connect better both
technically and culturally across geographic and application boundaries,
deliver more value to our members, and better position our profession to
address today's challenges and tomorrow's. INCOSE currently counts
almost 9,000 members in 67 chapters worldwide. There's much to be proud
of, but we can't afford to be satisfied when today's systems challenges
demand more knowledge, more skill and more leadership."
