Happy New Year!

Greetings SAME Boston Post members – and Happy New Year! 

We start 2020 with some great Programs to enable networking across our industry, and to hear about contracting opportunities and trends across the region. I welcome you to follow our future Programs and Young Member events on our Website (https://www.same.org/boston) and read about our most recent meetings and presentations in this issue of the Bugle.

On January 14, 2020, we start the year off with a “supercharged” evening hosted jointly by our SAME Boston Post Young Member Committee and a local environmental professional society, the LSP Association. Sustaining member firm Heritage Environmental Services is the event sponsor, and we are so appreciative of their support! Many thanks go out as well to Mykel Mendes and Anne MacMillan for their continued excellent leadership of our Young Member Committee.


On February 6, 2020, the SAME Boston Post Small Business Committee, in concert with the Piscataqua and Narragansett Posts, host the 17th Annual Contract Opportunities and Small Business Showcase. There will be contracting opportunity briefings from key agencies from the New England Region, including U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, NAVFAC MIDLANT, U.S. Coast Guard, MA Department of Transportation, and US Department of Veterans Affairs. This is followed up by a great Small Business Showcase, complete with networking and heavy appetizers. A big thank you goes out to Paul Steinberg, our SB Committee Chair, and his entire committee for all their hard work in planning this event. This is a great annual event – so sign up early!


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 winter!


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,
