The SAME FAM Committee's next quarterly meeting is planned for Tuesday, May 19th from 0930-1130 Central Time in conjunction with the SAME 2015 JETC in Houston, TX.
The face to face committee meeting will include a review of the committee's activities over the past year as well as a discussion on the coming year's events. The meeting will also include a panel presentation on "Leveraging Master Planning Practices to achieve Resiliency".
TITLE: Leveraging Master Planning Practices to achieve Resiliency
SYNOPSIS: Recently updated installation master planning policies require installations to embrace principles of sustainable and plan compact development that result in a reduced developed footprint while preserving long-term military capabilities. While these policies were formulated to preserve installation capabilities, many of the factors regarding maintaining resiliency were imbedded into these principles. This panel's presentations will demonstrate several practices from various installations and military services. Topics and Panel Members include:
"Knowing your baseline: Assessing Sustainable Planning throughout the Marine Corps" by Mr. Barry Gordon, Urban Collaborative and a USMC Representative
"Integrating Energy Modeling into the Planning Process" by Dr. Rumanda Young, Ph.D., RLA, AICP, LEED AP, Chief, Master Planning Section and Southwest Division Energy Development Manager, USACE
"A Recipe for Resilient Development: Joint Base Pearl Harbor/Hickam Master Plan" by Mr. Jerry Zekert, Chief Master Planning Team, HQUSACE
Unfortunately, we will NOT have the capability to conduct a web meeting of this event. This will be a face to face; in person meeting.

Welcome to the Facility Asset Management (FAM) Committee of the Society of American Military Engineers.
Initiated in 2005, the committee includes a growing partnership with IFMA (The International Facility Management Association) and recurring sponsorships of annual facility management forums and educational tracks at SAME and IFMA conferences. The committee is a source of facility and asset management information, resources and events, and as of May 2010, it is also the sponsoring committee for the SAME Sustainability Sub-Committee.
Our intent is to provide an information resource on facility and asset management topics of interest to our members. To support our members, we will provide information and reference links on the website, continue to look for meaningful industry partnerships, offer quarterly web-based meetings/conference calls and Sustainability Sub-Committee activities, encourage our membership to submit FAM articles to professional publications, provide distribution emails on upcoming FAM related events and training opportunities, and provide an avenue for networking between members.
Our committee organization includes seven targeted areas:
Vice-Chair for SAME-IFMA FM Workshop
Vice-Chair for Communications
Vice-Chair for Training and Education
Vice-Chair for Professional Certifications and Partnerships
Vice-Chair for BIM FM Working Group
SAME-JETC Installation Management Track Chair
Vice-Chair for Sustainment Management Systems (SMS)
I am pleased to be the current SAME FAM Committee Chair and invite you to join me and the Vice-Chairs in building on previous committee efforts and successes.
We welcome your inputs and questions. If you have suggestions, or would like to be included on committee event notices, please do not hesitate to contact myself or any of the committee officers.
