Knowledge Management Center

The Resilience Knowledge Management Center is a compilation of SAME's societal resources

Check out our first Resilience Committee webinar            


The Resilience Committee was formed in October 2016 with James Hagan, taking the lead as Chair. Following Jim’s untimely passing, Joe Manous assumed the Chair in November 2017.  The predecessor of the Resilience Committee, The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP) Council, facilitated public and private sector collaboration to advance the practice and policies of regional and infrastructure security and resilience.  That effort continues to broaden, as SAME attempts to mobilize action through its Posts and at the national level to promote secure and resilient infrastructure that supports the Nation’s economy and well-being of its people.


The SAME Resilience Committee builds upon TISP’s efforts of affiliation with a variety of agencies, private industry, associations, and individuals sharing common interests in resilient infrastructure to not only mobilize action through SAME Posts, but connect with the uniformed services, local communities, and federal agencies.
