President's News Oct. 2019
Greetings SAME Boston Post members – and Happy Fall 2019!  

We have kicked off this season with some great Programs to share knowledge related to engineering, environmental and construction projects in New England.    Follow our future Programs and Young Member events on our Website (HERE) and read about our most recent meetings and presentations in this issue of the Bugle.   

In September, John Wyeth from Portsmouth Naval Shipyard shared the plans and future expansions related to the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program.   Of interest to all of our membership is the need to for the US Navy to develop and implement plans to address and monitor its infrastructure investments in New England and across the country. In this naval spirit, on October 17, 2019, the Boston, Piscataqua and Narragansett SAME Posts in New England are jointly hosting our first New England Celebration of the centennial celebration for the Society of American Military Engineers at the USS Constitution!  Please join our exciting event, which will include tours of the USS Constitution on the waterfront in downtown Boston.   The day will include updates and briefings from the three Federal entities that are present at this historic site:  the Navy, the Coast Guard and the National Park Service. 

During this same Columbus Day week, on October 15, 2019 we will be hosting our SAME Boston Post Golf Event, complete with “golf with a pro” the week before for those member who would like to sharpen their golf skills.  Sign‐ups for all of these exciting networking and STEM fundraising events can be found on our website. I want to thank all of our Sustaining Members, as well as the large number of volunteer Committee Chairs and members for creating and sustaining a vibrant Boston Post for SAME.  Come join us for our exciting events this fall! 

Many thanks, Lisa Brandon


Greetings from Post President Lisa Brandon

Greetings SAME Boston Post members – and happy 4th of July!  It is a great time to celebrate the birthday of our country, and also to kick off our centennial celebration for the Society of American Military Engineers!  I am honored to serve as the Boston Post President, and look forward to helping to Celebrating our 100th Anniversary in our Run to 2020 for SAME!  We have many exciting events in the planning stage for this year, and I welcome you to keep up with announcements on our SAME Boston Post website and our Post email updates.

 

I want to thank Dawn Dearborn – our outgoing Post President – for all of her contributions to the Post!  She has done a great job this past year, and her focus on building up our resiliency program in particular has been excellent.  Under her leadership, our Boston Post was awarded many streamers from SAME National, including 3 with Distinction!  Dawn did all this while also busy running her own firm as President of Tantara, plus juggling many of life’s incoming adventures.  I also want to thank Dawn for mentoring me personally over the past many years as I have succeeded her on all the many committees that she has chaired.  Thank you Dawn!

 

In keeping with the 2020 SAME Vision Statement, our Boston Post will strive this year to continue to be recognized as the multi-disciplined integrator of military, private, and academic national infrastructure-related capabilities to produce viable solutions for American’s national security.  Our Committee Chairs have already begun working on excellent Programs for this year that align with this vision; enhanced STEM out-reach activities; and a wide variety of networking and business development opportunities that our membership values.  

 

I want to thank all of our Sustaining Members, and the large number of volunteer Committee Chairs and members for creating and sustaining a vibrant Boston Post for SAME.  Come join us for our exciting events this year!

 

Best Regards,

Lisa Brandon
