Each year the Los Angeles Chapter of INCOSE honors two of our own for their contributions to the chapter and for their furtherance of the systems engineering profession. Our chapter is graced with many volunteers who attended to the many behind-the-scenes details that bring home the success of our speaker meetings, tutorials and special events. The 2009 Board is proud to present to the membership the following awards issued to members of the INCOSE-LA chapter:

Malina Hills - President’s Award

The President’s Award was started in 2003 as away to distinguish a member that provided service to the chapter while the immediate past president was in office. This award is to honor those who step up and do outstanding work even when they are not elected or appointed to the task.

Malina Hills received the President's Award this year for her commitment to the Los Angeles Chapter. From my point of view, it began with her fundraising work for CSER 2006. This work, which contributed to a surplus, has sustained our Chapter's ability to operate comfortably as we strive to deliver a quality product for the members of the Los Angeles Chapter and the systems engineering community at large. Malina then demonstrated her extreme commitment by the dedication that was needed to deliver a successful CSER 2008 this year. The attendance and attendee's feedback were excellent. Congratulations Malina, and thank you very much!

Shirley Tseng - Susan C. Ruth Award

The Susan C. Ruth award is named for the service Susan provided during the first ten years of the Chapter's existence service in every way possible while never seeking anything other than the betterment of the Chapter. The award was started in 2001. It is meant to recognize LA Chapter volunteers who have given a significant amount of volunteer service to the chapter for at least 5 years.

Shirley Tseng received the Susan Ruth Award this year for her long-term membership (1993) in the INCOSE-LA Chapter and her volunteering to support just about every INCOSE-LA event for as long as I have known her (since 2005). This year, as the Director of Tutorials/Education, Shirley has been extremely productive as she has given our Chapter more visibility to our members. This visibility sends the message that our Chapter does provide quality opportunities for practical systems engineering education. Congratulations Shirley, and thank you very much! The Susan C.
