The success of our chapter ultimately depends on many people volunteering a telling portion of their time and knowledge to advance the practice of systems engineering locally. INCOSE SA and INCOSE recognises the individuals who have made the organisation and systems engineering what it is today.
Awards for outstanding service are presented to recognize INCOSE members who have contributed significant volunteer effort on behalf of INCOSE. Visit this page for more information.
The past South African Outstanding Service Award Recipients are:
2018: René Oosthuizen Chapter Governance and Finance Model Team In recognition of dedicated service as a member of the Chapter Governance and Finance Model (CGFM) Task Team chartered by the INCOSE Board of Directors 2016-2017. The resulting achievements of this team will have a significant impact on the future of the INCOSE organization.

2014: René Oosthuizen For his leadership and outstanding commitment to the INCOSE South Africa Chapter including bringing EMEASEC to South Africa in 2014, and his contributions to INCOSE at the International level.
Through the annual chapter awards program, INCOSE has the opportunity to recognize the valuable contributions of individual INCOSE chapters as they strive to enrich, educate, and enlighten the INCOSE membership while improving recognition of INCOSE and the systems engineering profession.
The annual awards program includes the Platinum Circle, Gold Circle, Silver Circle, and Bronze Circle awards to recognize all chapters that meet and exceed INCOSE's standards for local service and contributions. To acknowledge the special effort required to significantly improve an INCOSE chapter, the awards program establishes the Director's Award for Most Improved Chapter. Finally, to provide meaningful recognition of chapter excellence, INCOSE presents annually the President's Award for Outstanding Chapter.
The INCOSE Institute for Technical Leadership provides a development program for active INCOSE members seeking to improve their leadership skills in an open, collaborative environment. Visit this page for more information.
