Benefits of Membership

Membership on the CAB demonstrates an organization's commitment to ensuring that the state of the practice of systems engineering is enhanced to meet the needs of future generations engineering complex systems. CAB membership provide companies a leadership role in INCOSE. The CAB describes the primary benefits of CAB membership as follows:

  • The ability to steer INCOSE along the lines of the CAB charter and stated CAB needs;
  • The ability to ensure that INCOSE is providing the needed value to our employees;
  • Corporate access to the INCOSE Product Area, a portal providing all of the latest INCOSE technical materials
  • Free electronic access to any INCOSE products for use on our own intranets available to all our employees (Systems Engineering Handbook, Measurement Primer, etc.); and
  • Various "advertisement" opportunities noted below which allow us to show our organization's commitment to systems engineering.

As part of CAB membership, INCOSE provides CAB member organizations with:

  • A voting position on the Corporate Advisory Board

Organizational Restructuring

Recognizing that many of our member organizations are merging, fueled in part by the consolidation of the defense industry and other business trends, the CAB encourages flexible approaches to membership of "merged" organizations based on the following guidelines:

  • INCOSE will continue to charge a single organization initiation fee ($ 10,000)
  • INCOSE will allow a single organization to have multiple memberships where a distinct interest and/or need exists (as determined by the organization and approved by the CAB)
  • Renewal fees ($ 3,000 annually) will be paid by each distinct organizational unit (resulting in possible multiple annual renewal fees for organizations which elect multiple memberships)
