Journey to Fellow: Detours & Alternate Paths to Fellow

Thursday, February 29, 2024 | 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. (*part two in a three-part webinar series)

SAME Academy of Fellows seal

The SAME Academy of Fellows has crafted Journey To Fellow to debut in 2024. This program has the mission to create awareness and cultivate members for the Academy of Fellows, fortifying the Society for a sustainable future. This innovative program promises several annual opportunities for members to delve into the nuances of Fellowship, strategies to maximize efforts toward earning this distinction, and the chance to connect with peers on a similar journey.

The second webinar in the series, “Detours & Alternate Paths to Fellow”, will look at the various paths one might take as a member of SAME. Do the twisting trails of life ever lead you down roads you didn’t see coming? How often does that grassy road less traveled beckon you? These detours and alternate paths in life do not need to slow down our long-term goals or our path to becoming a Fellow in SAME.

Join this webinar for a discussion on different approaches to keep you on track toward fellowship, even as your career may take a creative path far from an SAME Post or outside the stereotypical military engineering community.

“I urge you to approach this honor of being invested as a Fellow not as a moment in time, or a professional ‘lifetime achievement award’ of sorts. Rather, I urge you to approach your new status as Fellow as the start of a new opportunity, a charge to be a role model, a charge to be a mentor, and a charge to share all you have learned with future leaders with whom much can be shared, and just as much learned.”
