Virginia Peninsula Post Team,
As we make our way into the beginning of 2022, I challenge each of us to embrace the concept of Build Back Better! For our work, our family and developing our new Post strategy.
We will be using February and March to plan with our Board and engage with our membership to develop a special post. Please join us!! Our goal is to bring in fresh ideas, reach out to existing and potential SAME members as we tap into the military facilities at Fort Eustis, Naval Weapons Station, Yorktown Coast Guard Station, and work with our companion Student Chapters at VMI and Hampton University.
We will realign our elections to a single event in May/June. Running a successful Post requires leadership and a willingness to mentor. These principles are at the foundation of SAME National and the Virginia Peninsula Post. Service and Collaboration is our mindset in Virginia, and we have the ability with three distinctive Posts in our region, to show the rest of the US how it is done.
I encourage each to explore the SAME Organizational Benefits and if you have an interest in volunteering or developing a position- you will be most welcome!
Thank you for allowing me the opportunity and privilege to serve you on this post and the many SAME activities that our region participates.
Wishing you and your families and friends a Prosperous and Healthy 2022,
The Virginia Peninsula Post accomplishes this goal locally by having monthly luncheon meetings and other social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties.
Our members receive announcements via e-mail and our 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.
