SAME Century BookIn recognition of its Centennial in 2020, SAME undertook the commissioning of an anniversary book that will both chronicle its first 100 years and outline where the Society is headed to begin its second century of service to the nation, and the profession. SAME: The Second Century Begins – Preparing for the Future by Building on the Past will be published and available in spring 2021.

The book will examine how and why the Society was founded, and its importance since 1920 in bringing the greater body of engineering professionals from the military, public, private, and academic together to solve infrastructure challenges, build trust, increase readiness, and support the next generation of leaders. Included within will be archival material from SAME’s history, perspectives from past and current members, milestones of note, distinguished members, insights on the Society’s role in leading collaboration throughout the last 100 years, and examples of the total engineering profession working together to solve national security infrastructure-related challenges.

Society of American Military Engineers

Founded in 1920, the Society of American Military Engineers builds leaders and leads collaboration among government and industry to develop multi-disciplined solutions to national security infrastructure challenges. With a National Office in Alexandria, Va., and more than 100 Posts and Field Chapters around the world, the Society unites public and private sector individuals and organizations from across the architecture, engineering, construction, environmental and facility management, cyber security, and contracting and acquisition disciplines.

SAME was born from the lessons of World War I and the realization of those who went “over there” that the engineering community was unprepared for what was confronted. That prescient leadership would prove invaluable, as “The War to End All Wars” was anything but. As we begin our second century in 2020, our vision to serve our nation as the foremost integrator for leadership development and technical collaboration within the A/E/C profession echoes the motivations of SAME’s founders, who, very clearly valuing diversity of thought and the benefits of many perspectives, proclaimed that “eligibility qualifications for membership in this Society are drawn on the broadest possible lines, consistent with the achievement of its aims.”

SAME is vital and enduring. And after 100 years, our role has never been more clear: Let's help secure America's future, together.
