SAME Strategic Partnerships

Let SAME's strategic partnerships work for you! Click on a partner logo below to see a description and written agreement.

In support of its mission to “lead collaborative efforts to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges” SAME has established more than 20 strategic partnerships over the last four years, to both bring together professionals from different technical disciplines and to create opportunities for members to benefit from and participate in other organizations. 

The key to success for strategic partnerships (and included in MOAs) is implementation and collaboration at the Post level.  Joint meetings are now tracked on Post annual reports; Posts are encouraged to host joint meetings with organizations that support our national direction. SAME also has some partnerships and agreements that are more member-benefit specific, including discounted prices for certification, training, and secondary education.

A strategic partnership provides opportunities to contribute to SAME's strategic direction and grow professionally.

  • Help recruit new members from industry and government.
  • Expand the geographic reach of the SAME mission. 
  • Help members gain access to new intellectual property.
  • Help members solve local A/E/C challenges and issues through collaboration.

SAME National has or is pursuing official agreements with the organizations listed below, but has unofficial relationships with an increasing number of entities. If you have a question about any of these or would like to suggest an organization to partner with, please review the SAME Strategic Partner Philosophy and contact Kathy Off, CGMP, PMP | Strategic & Stakeholder Relations | koff@same.org | 703-549-3800 ext. 153.

“The CCM certification, in conjunction with specific supplemental government training, has the potential to be the bedrock for providing rigor and stability to the military design and construction process. As a long-term member of SAME, I was excited to see the partnership between SAME and CMAA as well as the endorsement of the CCM by SAME as the only credential in the construction industry that specifically and reliably identifies its holder as a quality professional construction manager.”
