Join us for our July Webinar Series!

Please join the Baltimore Post SAME as we host a three-part discussion/webinar related to returning to the office and field post COVID-19 Shutdowns.  There are many aspects to our collective return and therefore we are offering our members opportunity to interact with others in industry to discuss key relevant topics relevant to members of the AEC community and clients confronted with challenges related to return, including considerations, tools, techniques case studies.  Specifically, we will host three 45 minute events on consecutive Wednesdays.  You can register for one or all of the events as your schedule permits.  The webinar is free, but we are asking attendees to consider a contribution to the SAME Baltimore Post Scholarship Fund to allow us continue to achieve our annual objective of providing $30,000 in college scholarships to students with STEM related majors.

We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their community.  Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.  Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.  However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership (which includes leadership by example), being accepted into the Academy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are granted this recognition.  The selection process is not a competition.
