Welcome Message from the Chairman

Welcome to the Architectural Practice Committee of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME).

The SAME Executive Committee approved the establishment of the new Architectural Practice Committee, effective Nov. 16, 2012. It is my honor and privilege to serve as your committee’s first chair. The committee is an outgrowth of an architectural group which was formed in October 2012 with prior recipients of the SAME national Urbahn Medal which is awarded annually to one SAME architect for his or her eminent and notable contribution in the field of architecture. The Urbahn Medal group will serve as the advisory board for the national Architectural Practice Committee.

Our intent is to promote architectural practice within SAME, broaden the organization’s exposure in the architectural community, and recruit more architects, along with expanding networking and mentoring opportunities.

The committee is organized into four focus areas:

STEM2Attracting Future Engineers

The demand for engineers is rising. Yet we are faced with discouraging statistics on the number of students considering engineering careers, and disappointing math and science scores that place U.S. students’ performance below many industrialized nations. America is simply not going to have the engineers it needs to stay competitive and remain a world a leader in innovation without more investment. Our professions must be able to reach out to our young students to excite, attract and interest them in careers in engineering and related fields.

STEMSupporting Students Today

We can do this by lending support to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs that inspire future generations of engineers. Within SAME, our Posts have had many successful K-12 programs and Engineer Week activities. Our focus on STEM will pull it all together and expand our successes in more and different ways including school visits, STEM-related programs, science fairs, inspirational mentoring, and more.

Current Events

FAM Committee Quarterly Meeting - 11 Mar 2014

The SAME FAM Committee held their quarterly conference call/web committee meeting on 11 Mar, 2014. The meeting started with a 50 minute webinar on "Partnerships and FY13 NDAA Section 331" by Ms. Carla K. Coulson, U.S. Army, Director, Installation Services in the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management. The slides for the webinar can be accessed by clicking on the FAM Committee Quarterly Meeting - 11 Mar 2014 title above.

Ms. Coulson reviewed the FY 13 NDAA legislation that provides the Department of Defense with the ability to enter into Public-Public partnerships with State and local communities. She discussed the characteristics of the legislation - use of local wage rates, how it provides the ability to acquire or provide services, and how it supports sole source agreements for up to 5 years. She provided an update on the initial pilot projects, the Army's progress, lessons learned to date and the required Report to Congress. She also spoke briefly about some of the challenges of implementing the intent of the legislation and how the Army might address those challenges either through policy, process or new legislation as it moves forward in the future.

1 PDH was earned by participants in the Webinar. The certificate can be accessed clicking on this link.

About Us:

The SAME College Outreach Committee strives to organize programs and present opportunities to future members of the military engineering community that will foster networking within the professional community, build leadership skills and provide job opportunities to recent graduates. Additionally, students with an active membership within SAME have at their disposal a wealth of knowledge and experiences from professionals throughout the military engineering enterprise that is simply not available by other means. Check us out on Facebook!

Mission Statement:

The College Outreach Committee assists SAME Posts in mentoring and building professional relationships between Post members and students majoring in engineering and related programs at local colleges and universities, and introducing students to job opportunities in military engineering.

A Note from the Committee Chair:

To our Student Members:

First and foremost I want to commend you on your decision to participate in SAME. Our organization is rich with resources and opportunities to strengthen your career before it even begins. As a student member, you can participate in our annual meetings and workshops, which serve as a creative think tank for young professionals. These events include a mixture of networking, professional development and leadership training that will be beneficial throughout your career.

I have 6 specific goals that I want to make a priority for this academic year, and am looking for creative methods that can return positive results; they are as follows:

 

  1. Increase interaction between Posts and Student Chapters.
  2. Increase Student Leader Workshop (SLW) participation
  3. Maintain current directories of Student Chapters, Post mentors, and faculty advisors
  4. Publish a Student Chapter "Guidance Manual"
  5. Establish "indicators" for Student Chapter activity
  6. Continue to grow the number of Student Chapters

I look forward to hearing about what has worked for your Chapter and what ideas you have for future events.

Post Mentoring

Mentoring is one of SAME's most important goals, and toward that end Posts are encouraged to develop College Outreach plans to involve local college and university students and encourage their pursuit of careers in the A/E/C field. Remember, the students you mentor today will be the leaders of tomorrow!
Posts can work with students toward this goal by:

  • Sponsoring a Student Chapter at a local college or university that has a program for students in engineering, architecture or construction.
  • Support two Student Leaders from your Student Chapter by sending them to the annual SAME Student Leadership Workshop. Space permitting, Posts may send a third student leader from their Student Chapter by paying a $300 registration fee per student. Download the Student Workshop application form to register your Student Leader(s) to the attend the Winter 2013 SAME Student Leaders Workshop, Jan 25-26, 2012, in Glendale AZ.
  • Formalizing the creation of a Student Chapter with an endorsed Charter. Download the Student Chapter Charter Template. [PDF]
  • Seeking out faculty members that may be SAME members, and get them involved as Faculty Advisors.
  • Seeking out former graduates from the local colleges or universities who will be able to connect you with current faculty or students.
  • Forwarding the signed Student Chapter Charter to Col. Joe Manous, USA (Ret.) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. who will forward it on to SAME national headquarters.
  • Helping with recruitment material to attract student members. Click here to view/download recruitment material. (coming soon)
  • Assisting the student chapter by suggesting meeting topics, speakers and field trips to SAME member offices or work sites.
  • Letting the students know about job opportunities and internships.
  • Encouraging students to be involved with the SAME Young Member Council.
  • Host programs and activities that involve students majoring in engineering, architecture or construction from a local college or university. The activity or program should focus on the mentoring of students.

Recognition is one of the key components in engaging young leaders in the Society. To that end, the Society created two awards that offer Posts a way to recognize the leadership and involvement of college and university students:

Nominations for these annual awards, with supporting materials, are due to SAME HQ no later than January 31st of each year.

From the days of the fledgling collection of colonies to today’s coalitions of nations, engineers have brought mobility, natural resources, better health and security to people around the world.

People remember the names of kings and presidents. But the names of those who surveyed, engineered, designed and built America — and helped build other nations — do not come quite so easily to mind. Yet the living conditions of people, the expanding world economy and the emergence of global stability are products of the remarkable gifts and the immeasurable contributions of engineers.

Each year, SAME presents 35 awards saluting individuals, companies, government agencies and uniformed teams and units whose achievements are making our Society, our private and public organizations, and our lives significantly better today.

In addition, SAME's chapters, called Posts, compete in the annual Streamer Awards competition to reward dedication and service to SAME at the local level.
