Human Factors 
Potomac Chapter



Our Vision

We believe that in the future, the human factors specialist will be a vital part of every design team as a routine association. This does not imply that he/she will be in charge, but it does mean that new, high quality technology will certainly not be successfully developed and marketed without the synergistic linking of the engineering and human factors disciplines. It is the goal of our chapter and the national society to foster growth of our field and to increase the awareness of others about our work.
