Small Business Outreach + Industry Day & April IGE Cyber Security

SAME is dedicated to the health and safety of all its members and event participants. In response to emerging public health concerns posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and due to the recent state of emergency announced by Virginia Governor Ralph Northam, we have decided to postpone this event to ensure the safety and health of all of our members.


SAME will be working with the hotel in the coming days to find an alternative date.  The planning committee appreciates your patience as we work through this first ever cancellation of a major event.  Thank you!

Hotel Room Cancellation:

You must make your own hotel room CANCELLATION within a 48-hour window of when you were to arrive at the Rennaissance in Portsmouth.  Please call 888-839-1775 and reference SAME to cancel your room.  If you have any difficulty, please email Cindy Nash at cnash@getsolutionsinc.com for assistance.

The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME), the premier professional military engineering association in the United States, unites architecture, engineering, construction (A/E/C), facility management and environmental entities and individuals in the public and private sectors to prepare for—and overcome—natural and man-made disasters, and to improve security at home and abroad.  Headquartered in Alexandria, VA, SAME provides its more than 27,000 members extensive opportunities for training, education and professional development through a robust offering of conferences, workshops, networking events and publications. With a membership that includes recent service academy graduates and retired flag officers, project managers and corporate executives, Department of Defense civilians, private-sector experts and everyone in between, SAME is bridging the gaps between critical stakeholders to advance the field of military engineering and help secure our nation.

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.  Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Hampton Roads Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Hampton Roads Post membership.
