Purpose: Outreach and Collaboration activities of the chapter are where the chapter interacts with entities outside of INCOSE to promote INCOSE and/or apply & apply systems engineering.

Description: There are many opportunities for outreach and collaboration. Participating in joint meeting with another professional society such as ASQ, PMI, IEEE, or AES can provide an opportunity to explain or promote systems engineering. Working in the non-corporate community, collaborating with such entities as a local government, university, or non-profit may bring systems engineering to bear in new areas. Working with students from K-college/trade schools is another way to develop interest in systems engineering with activities such as speaking during Engineering Week or sponsoring or participating in events such as Future City, science fairs, or robotics competitions. Outreach can also involve making a presentation about INCOSE to executives in a previously unrepresented organization.
