The Scott Field Post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) is one of more than 104 Posts representing over 29,000 members worldwide. The SAME organization is supported by Regions, and each Region is comprised of several local Posts. The Scott Field Post is one of six posts within the Missouri River Region.
The Scott Field Post represents SAME members on Scott Air Force Base, Illinois and the entire southwest region of Illinois to include the greater St. Louis, Missouri metropolitan area. In addition to our local members, we have members across the nation who contribute to the success of the Post. Our membership is composed of Individual Members and over 30 Sustaining Member firms totaling in excess of 270 members. As of 2011, the Scott Field Post membership also includes the Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville Student Chapter.
Events are held on a monthly basis which foster professional development in design, construction, and related fields. Opportunities abound for public sector and private sector employees to interact and work together. Programs like science fair judging, scholarships, and college outreach are key to the Post reaching students and preparing them for careers in engineering or boosting interest in the military and the public sector.
We are one of the most successful Posts in the Society, reflected in our annual Streamer Award wins and successful Education and Mentoring program. On an annual basis, the Missouri River Region teams up with our sister region, the Texoma Region, for a Joint Regional Engineer Training Symposium.
