Welcome to the Philadelphia Post of the Society of American Military Engineers’ website!  The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering and scientific 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 community to prepare for and overcome natural and man-made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Philadelphia Post accomplishes this goal locally by hosting 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. The Philadelphia Post is supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer.

On a personal note, I am neither an engineer (biologists rock!) nor do I have a military background, yet my 14 years with the Philly Post has enriched my personal and professional life considerably.  Participation in SAME events has increased my networking and organizational skills and provided valuable opportunities for me to contribute to many worthwhile events (STEM education, mentoring, fund raising, regional resiliency, etc.).  Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Philadelphia Post membership for yourself and do not hesitate to reach out to me at Lyle.Trumbull@obg.com if I can further your understanding of this great organization.
