Welcome Newest SAME Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows has selected the new members who will be invested into the Fellows Class of 2024, during the Fellows Investiture, which will be held at JETC in Orlando, May 14-16.

A total of 23 SAME members will become Fellows this year, joining the more than 700 members of the Academy of Fellows. While SAME has bestowed the title of Fellow since 1973, in 1995 an institution was formally established to recognize those individuals who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to the Society, to military engineering, and to the A/E/C profession.

Strengthening Industry-Government Engagement

As the cornerstone on which the Society was founded in 1920, industry-government engagement remains “mission-essential” for the organization a century later, as the first goal of the 2025 SAME Strategic Plan. In 2021, SAME initiated a new process to evaluate and execute national-level IGE projects in order to ensure we deliver impact and maximize the use of available resources

Important Site Information

Welcome to the new SAME national website. This is the launch of Phase One of our Enterprise Management System (website, member database, application portal, and more). To access your SAME member account, you will need to log in above using your email address and you will be asked to create a new password. If you have any questions or issues, contact member@same.org.

This initial operating capability of the new website and member database has become a true “design-build” project. That means that the legacy SAME website is still operational, and contains some content you may be looking for. If you are redirected to the old website, that is normal (for now). You may find what you are looking for there. Mainly, this now includes the calendar of events and SAME Post webpages. These pages will be migrated over to this website in the near future; until then, thank you in advance for your patience. For a full list of ongoing EMS priorities, click on the button above.
