Post Centennial Celebrations

Founded in 1920, SAME will turn 100 in 2020. As part of the Society’s Three-Year Centennial Celebration (May 2018-May 2021), SAME Posts have been asked to host local-level Centennial Celebrations that are intended to emphasize the value and importance of Posts in their community.

The intent of these events is not simply to celebrate SAME’s 100th anniversary, but to lead collaboration in our profession by leveraging our Centennial to host a meaningful event that draws new partners, stakeholders, and members to the Post in order to increase active participation as we begin our second century of service!

Keys for Planning Post Centennial Celebrations

  • Gain new participation from local military and industry partners, government agencies, inactive members, stakeholders, and the community by helping celebrate something that they have done over the last 100 years.
  • Use your Fellows to make the event a success.
  • Keep it simple. Many Posts are enhancing an event they already host. Remember, time is the coin of the realm! Make an existing event a little bigger; focus on bringing in the new stakeholders.
  • Follow the standard guidelines on capturing the event recaps to make sure it gets proper consideration for inclusion in the SAME Century Book.
  • SAME has established a Centennial Commission to oversee national and local Centennial-related events and coordination. The group includes the Centennial Task Force, which is the lead Point of Contact for questions and coordination of Post Centennial Celebrations.
  • All Posts are establishing a Post Centennial Coordinator to work with the national Centennial Task Force. Contact the coordinator at your Post for locally specific questions.
  • Tell the National Office about your Post’s Centennial Celebration and contact your area’s Centennial Task Force Liaison.

“Post-level Centennial Celebrations will emphasize the importance of Posts and their value locally by engaging participation from industry partners, agencies, stakeholders, and the community to help celebrate what they all have done together for the A/E/C profession over the last 100 years and create public awareness of how the engineering profession has changed the world through creative solutions. Let’s take this opportunity to propel SAME into our next century!”

–Dave Newkirk, SAME Northwest Regional Vice President and Chair of the SAME Centennial Task Force
