Past and Future National SAME Conferences

The Joint Engineer Training Conference & Expo is the major annual event for SAME. In addition to technical and continuing education events, this national program includes the annual Members' Meeting and Installation of Officers and Directors, the meeting of the Senior Executive Group, the presentation of the SAME Annual Awards, and the spring Board Meeting. Frequently, the Engineering Service Chiefs will schedule command meetings for their officers and senior civilians in concert with these annual SAME events.

The event was hosted in the past by local SAME Posts with the assistance of SAME HQ. In 2009, SAME HQ resumed planning and organizational leader for the conferences. The local Post continues to partner with HQ to provide important support for local events and functions.
