4. BoD Member Reports
BoD members should provide a short report to the secretary even if they can not attend the meeting.

 Report & Discussion
 President
 Vice President      Introduced Tad Walls as Director at Large for Programs. Tad explained his job
                       duties and location at Booz Allen Hamilton.
 Treasurer’s Report    Same as last month – attached in Appendix A – March monthly
                       treasurer’s report will be double checked for possible $300 which needs to
                       be added as a deposit.
 Secretary’s Report
 DaL – Programs (7     Current Calendar – Appendix B: Andy discussed upcoming events as displayed
 minutes)              in Appendix B.
 DaL - Membership      Membership report – Appendix C: Discussed Membership Report.
 (3 minutes)           Michele requested BoD comments on the lapsed membership letter and the
                       new membership letter. Comments are due to Michele by Friday April 20,
                       2007. She intends to mail letters out on Friday April 27, 2007
 DaL - University
 DaL – Publication     Chris spoke on behalf of Dan Fontain. Chris noted that our most recent
                       newsletter is a very good one. Chris indicated, while investigating the scoring
                       system for HRA chapters, he came across a “best practices” example of a
                       newsletter and the HRA – INCOSE newsletter far exceeds what Chris found.
 DaL – Training &      Kelly briefly mentioned, on behalf of John Clark that the 11 week web-based
 Education             Tutorial on the INCOSE SE Handbook in Preparation for SE Certification has
                       been completed.
 PEC
 Representative
 Web Master            Christy is investigating moving the HRA-INCOSE web page to the INCOSE
                       international site. This will alleviate cost (of the current site). Bill does not know
                       the timing.

Attachment C - Membership Report for April 2007 BOD
   The following chart will be filled out throughout the year to show a comparison of new membership each month for
   the years 2005, 2006, and 2007. From this chart, the HRA – INCOSE BOD may be able to gauge trends among the
   specific months new members typically join and plan membership activities accordingly:

   A quick summary of the chart indicates that our new membership rates for January and February were low in
   comparison to the last two years; however, we have met the March rate of the past 2 years of 1 new member joined.

   Summary membership statistics are as follows:
       •   New members joined since March 1, 2007 = 1
              o Mr. Mike (Dean) Carzoo – SAIC, Systems Integrator (March 1st)
       •   Total Members Joined since January 1, 1994 = 232
       •   Total Members Lapsed since January 1, 1994 = 146
       •   Total Members Remaining as of February 12, 2007 = 86

                                                                        HRA - INCOSE Yearly Membership

   The graph to the below
   shows the total number of               45
   members that have joined                                                                                                           Remaining

  Lapsed Membership Letter
To: Lapsed Members of HRA-INCOSE

Subject: HRA-INCOSE Lapsed Membership Survey

Dear (will customize):

Greetings from Hampton Roads Area Chapter of International Council on Systems Engineering (HRA-INCOSE). I hope this
spring season finds you happy and healthy.

The Board of Directors has asked me to conduct a survey of past members who opted not to renew their membership in our
Chapter. We are very interested in your feedback to a few short questions that will help us improve our Chapter and its offerings.

     1.   How long had you been a member of INCOSE?

     2.   Did you participate in chapter-sponsored events?

     3.   If you answered “yes” to #2, please list those events attended:

     4.   Were any of the following meeting/event attributes inconvenient:
              a. Location
              b. Day of the week
              c. Time

     5.   What were your expectations of INCOSE as a professional organization?

     6.   How did we meet or not meet those expectations?

     7.   What added benefits did you expect from your membership that you did not receive?

     8.   Why did you let your membership lapse? Was it something that we can correct?

     9.   Based on your current circumstances, do you think that INCOSE membership could be more useful to you now?

     10. Would you be interested in renewing your membership at this point in time?

Your feedback will help us tailor our membership offerings to provide more value to systems engineering professionals like
yourself.

We request that you return this survey to mking@futron.com.

On behalf of the HRA-INCOSE Chapter, I would like to thank you for your time and please feel free to contact me if you have
any questions or concerns.
