SAME Strategic Partners

In support of its mission to “build leaders and lead collaboration among government and industry to develop multidisciplined solutions to national security infrastructure challenges” SAME has established a number of strategic partnerships to both bring together professionals from different technical disciplines and to create opportunities for members to benefit from and participate in other organizations.

The key to success for strategic partnerships (and included in MOAs) is implementation and collaboration at the Post level and through the Communities of Interest. Posts are encouraged to host joint meetings with organizations that support our national direction, and joint meetings are now tracked on Post annual reports.

Communities of Interest also coordinate national-level engagement with strategic partners, including on IGE projects, webinars, and presentations at national events. SAME does have some partnerships and agreements that are more member-benefit specific, including discounted prices for certification, training, and secondary education.

A strategic partnership provides opportunities to contribute to the Society’s strategic direction, support professional growth of members, and create additional opportunities to advance the engineering profession, collaboratively.
