SAME Virtual Industry-Government Engagement (IGE) Roundtables
Submit your intent to participate on-line (below) in one of three roundtables taking place during the SAME Small Business Conference. Deadline is October 16, 2020.
Industry-Government Engagement (IGE) has been the core tenet of SAME since the Society was founded 100 years ago. Now more than ever, our public and private sectors must come together to fight many different kinds of threats with short and long-term economic and national security implications: from material scarcity and industry capacity shortfalls, to artificial intelligence, machine learning, climate change, and pandemics.
SAME will hold three simultaneous roundtables (small, mid-size, and large business) on Thursday, November 5, 2:30 - 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. These will be open-ended roundtables where companies will be encouraged to present issues in working with the government on project delivery and life-cycle. Roundtable size will not exceed 20 companies and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. These roundtables are integrated into the SAME Small Business Conference (SBC). Register to attend here. There will be agency participation at each roundtable. If you are chosen, you will receive login information to attend. Attendees must be Presidents, CEOs, Vice Presidents, or the equivalent executive level to qualify.
Additionally, we are working to schedule various government listening sessions with agency leaders looking for feedback from specific demographics. These sessions will be scheduled to fit government leader calendars and will be held prior to the close of the calendar year. More information will be shared for these sessions as they get scheduled.
