Welcome to Savannah Post
Greetings Savannah Post! As your President for the 2021/2022 year, I am looking forward to continuing working with our wonderful Board of Directors and members as we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID-19 and try to maximize what our members are getting out of participating in SAME. We had our first in-person meeting in 18 months in July 2021, and it was great to be in person again. We will continue to move forward with our hybrid meetings, allowing participation for those who are unable to travel or attend. I encourage you to let us know what types of topics you would like to see presented at our monthly meetings, and we are always looking for volunteers to speak on those topics. For our sustaining members, I encourage you to talk to Laura Ballock about being our Sustaining Member in the spotlight where your firm’s information will appear on our website and you will be given an opportunity to brief your firm’s qualifications for a few minutes at the monthly meeting.
My goal as President is to provide meaningful events for our members to help them achieve success in their respective areas and also work toward the goals outlined in SAME’s 2025 Strategic Plan which are:
- Strengthen Industry-Government Engagement
- Build and Sustain Resilient Communities
- Develop Leaders for the Profession
- Enrich the STEM Pipeline for the Nation
- Prepare Servicemembers and Veterans for the A/E/C Industry
Regarding the goal of enriching the STEM pipeline for the Nation, your participation in our various SAME Savannah Post events helps us raise funds to provide 16 annual scholarships in the amount of $2500/each, fund attendance at summer STEM camps, and provide funds to local schools for their STEM programs.
I look forward to a great 2021/2022 and hope to meet and see many of you at our various events planned through the coming months. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, or any of our Post Leaders, with questions you may have or to provide feedback as to how the SAME Savannah Post can better serve you and our other valued members.
