Nonprofit/Academic Membership

Nonprofit/Academic Membership in SAME

SAME’s nonprofit or academic membership gives you the opportunity to network with professionals (from both the public and private-sectors) who are working collaboratively to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges.

A great amount is demanded of your organization or institution to build leaders, support your mission, and be part of the dialogue on industry issues affecting national security. SAME provides a chance to be in the room where it happens and part of the effort to develop solutions for engineering and future leaders for the profession.
