Encourage Further Development of the Tutorial for ISSC37 on Inspiring Growth and Good Governance in an ISSS Chapter new generation is not as interested in commitment to professional groups since they can get info on-line improve advertising & recruiting of new leaders and members attempt to start, revitalize and grow chapters people want to see value before they commit; Whats in it for me is a reasonable question? Explain benefits of volunteering. encourage Use of virtual tools; Join Me, Event Brite, BBB, etc.

3. Ensure all Chapters send Annual Reports 4. International Outreach: try to increase international 03/01/2020 International System Safety Society attendance at conferences 5 Causes of Reduced Members & Weakening of Chapters

Chapters are now perceived by some as lessessential (no longer considered backbone of ISSS) A stronger centralized view by the executive for governance All monies raised by work of the chapters belongs to the Head Office (message / incentive?) Emphasis on importance of Head Office projects with less consideration of importance of encouraging chapter growth Does the ISSS have a goal to grow chapters? 6 Causes of Weakening of Chapters Originally Chapters were seen as a place where new engineers could be educated and could network with more experienced and become new members Some people prefer to be a member of a virtual

chapter than to physically attend a chapter in the area of their residence Can now attend meetings from home, office, coffee shop, etc. The ISSS Virtual Chapter has attracted some members who otherwise could have contributed to a local chapter 7 Leadership vision, goals, inspiration ??? too much conflict in some relationships e.g. organizers of the conference last year and the EC burn out phenomenon after organizing a conference lost art of motivating a group of people (chapter members) to act towards achieving a common goal ... inability to inspire others the leader (President of a Chapter) is the inspiration

and director of the action. He or she is the person in the group that possesses the combination of personality and leadership skills that makes others want to follow his or her direction 8 Thank you Any questions ? 03/01/2020 International System Safety Society 9
