The Mobile Post's Young Member Committee was created to support young professionals (age 39 or younger) at the post level. Our mission is to provide guidance and professional development resources to YMs, increase YM participation in Society events at the national and local levels, and enhance the professional network of our YMs. We strive to promote strong and lasting mentoring bonds between our Fellows and YMs through special events targeted to YMs.
The YM Committee needs your input! We are always seeking new ideas and fun ways to work with our YMs. To provide input and to get involved, please contact YM Committee Chair Claudia Bjork at Claudia.Bjork@GSEeng.com.
If you are a YM and want to be more active at the National level, please visit theSAME Young Member Council
website. All YMs are invited to join the Young Member Council!
University of South Alabama Student Chapter
The University of South Alabama SAME Student Chapter is an incredibly active organization of students majoring in Engineering and related programs. They operate independently of, but is supported by, the Mobile Post and operate one of the more active SAME student chapters in the nation. The Mobile Post encourages our members to build professional relationships with the Student Chapter members and to help foster the next generation of professionals in our field.
- Introduce students to job opportunities in military engineering by speaking at or attending a Student Chapter meeting. The chapter typically meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at the USA College of Engineering.
- Mentor students and help them establish their professional network. Student Chapter members attend Post luncheons, attend Post events and Young Member events, and also host a SAME tailgating tent at USA football games. GO JAGS!
- Provide technical and professional advice to help students kickstart their careers. Conduct mock interviews or function as a senior design mentor.
