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 much of the 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. This includes the calendar of events, all SAME Post webpages, Academy of Fellows, Engineering & Construction Camps, and more. These webpages will be migrated over to this website in the near future; until then, thank you in advance for your patience. Effective: 9/6/2022
