The Los Angeles, California chapter of INCOSE endeavors to fulfill the goals of INCOSE for our chapter membership. INCOSE-LA currently has a membership of about 415 Systems Engineers from industry, government, and academia, mostly from the greater Southern California area. The board of directors continually seeks to offer a complete program of professional and social events to its members and the systems engineering community.
The INCOSE-LA Chapter generally holds a speaker meeting each month - on the second Tuesday of the month, two or three Tutorials per year, and an annual conference. As a benefit of membership, INCOSE members receive discounts at chapter meetings and events. Our calendar also includes social events such as community service projects, networking events, holiday parties and informal gatherings.
For most speaker meeting events, our speaker is present at a 'Host' site (often in the El Segundo area based on that being an area with a higher concentration of members), and we also offer the option of attending at one of our 'Remote Site Webcast' locations - at Pasadena (JPL), Santa Barbara (Control Point), Huntington Beach (Boeing) and Antelope Valley. These meetings provide a great opportunity to hear about interesting systems engineering topics and to network with other systems engineering professionals.
