Updated Message from the President, Seattle Post, SAME - April 2020

The Seattle Post SAME is continuing efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19. This has been an unprecedented and challenging time for most all of us. We are continuing to support State and National directives to social distance and avoid any in-person gatherings for at least the next several months.


As previously announced last month, we have cancelled the Annual Technobowl Competition scheduled for April 25th at the University of Washington; and the Annual Small Business Symposium scheduled for April 27th and 28th at the Kitsap Conference Center.  These events will not be rescheduled for later this year but we are planning to hold these events in April 2021.


Due to the uncertainty we continue to face and the time needed to pull the logistics together for our Annual Meet-the-Chiefs event previously scheduled for June 15th and 16th at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma, we have decided to postpone this event and are looking to see if we can reschedule this event for September 21-22 at the Hotel Murano in Tacoma. We hope to have a better idea of if this is feasible next month and will keep everyone informed.


We recognize the impacts on our members of not having events to network and share information so in lieu of our normal upcoming lunch meetings we are actively exploring if we can have a webinar on April 28th and May 19th to share respective updates on the NAVFAC NW and the USCG FD&CC actions in light of COVID-19 and impacts on their ongoing programs.  Please look for follow-on emails in the next week or two.


The Seattle Post SAME is dedicated to the health and safety of all its members and event participants, and we thank you for your understanding in order to help contain the spread of the coronavirus. Please continue to check the Seattle Post SAME website: www.same.org/Seattle for updates.
