President's Message

Ed Grimmer
Post President

Dear St. Louis Post Members,

This summer has been an exciting one for the St. Louis Post. In June, the young member committees from both the St. Louis and Scott Field posts hosted an event at Ballpark Village. This event was highlighted by a presentation on managing generational differences in the work place. The event was well attended by both young and “not so” young members. I think we had at least three of the current working generations present which really added to the discussion. The speaker was amazing, too (OK, it was me…).

Our June and July luncheons were both great events. In June, Mary Kate Brown from the Madison County Emergency Management Agency discussed the Code Red Mass Notification System, and in July, Tom Seiler discussed Geospatial Technology Solutions. Our July Luncheon also included presentations from our three SAME high school summer campers. Everyone at the luncheon was very impressed with the quality of the presentations from these young men and women. I feel good knowing that the future of engineering lies with people like Anna Palm, Julia Strecker and Daniel Steinmeyer. A big “Thank You!!” to Pam Hobbs for her efforts coordinating their attendance at these camps.

We are closing in on two of our biggest events of the year. First, it’s time to sign up for our annual scholarship golf tournament. It will be held Friday, September 29th at the Gateway National Golf Links. This is a great networking opportunity and raises money for our annual scholarship program. Second, registration for the SAME 2nd Annual Trivia Night & Silent Auction Veterans Benefit Event opens on August 10th. This event takes place on Friday, November 10th and is hosted by both the Scott Field and St. Louis Posts. This year, it will benefit the Gateway Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America.

We have a few upcoming vacancies for committee positions. Our Young Member, and Education and Mentoring Committee Chairs will both be coming open. If you are interested in becoming more involved with SAME, we are always looking for dedicated volunteers to serve on committees or as chairs. These positions can be very rewarding and provide outstanding networking opportunities. If you have any questions about the St. Louis Post and these volunteer opportunities, please contact me at (618) 206-3025 or at egrimmer@sciengineering.com.

Sincerely,

 

Edwin P. Grimmer, PE
President, St. Louis Post

 

 

About the St. Louis Post

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The St. Louis Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME St. Louis Post membership.
