President’s Message:

 

It is my distinct honor to serve as your San Diego Post President. At various points in my career, I’ve been the beneficiary of well-run post programs, so I view this as an opportunity to pay that back to our current post members. My sincere hope is that you find post membership and participating in our events to be interesting, rewarding and fun.

If you’re new to SAME, reading the Society’s mission and vision statements will tell you a lot about who we are and what we aspire to be:

MISSION: To promote and facilitate engineering support for national security by developing and enhancing relationships and competencies among uniformed services, public and private sector engineers and related professionals, and by developing future engineers through outreach and mentoring.

VISION: To be a premier global engineering organization leading the professional and personal growth of all members in support of military readiness and development of solutions to national security challenges.

With our nation’s renewed focus on the Asia-Pacific region, which will be implemented in large part by military forces that reconstitute, train and deploy from installations in the greater San Diego area, we have a remarkable opportunity to continue our relevance in supporting national security well into the future.

I enjoy the support of many exceptional professionals, military and civilian, on our Board of Directors who are equally committed to making your experience in our Society a tremendously positive one. I’m a firm believer that when you bring talented people together, willing to work for common goals, great things are bound to happen. Thanks for visiting our website, and if you are not already a member, I hope that your visit has helped spark an interest in joining us.

All the best, and thanks for what you do to help keep our nation strong and safe!
