Communications


Purpose: Communications ensure the chapter and INCOSE has a readily available presence in the local systems engineering community with encouragement for joining and participation. Good communications also ensure that members are well informed and their voice is heard.


Description: The Communications Plan provides the blueprint for providing effective chapter communications. An attractive and current website is a good starting point. A newsletter provides the opportunity to personalize chapter plans, events, and personalities in an informative and even fun way. Communications includes publicity to broadcast event announcements and reminders. Ambassadors/Promoters ensure chapter events are well publicized in local companies, academia, and other societies while gathering ideas for programs, tutorials and other activities by which the chapter can better serve the local members and engineering community.
