The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME), the premier professional military engineering association in the United States, unites architecture, engineering, construction (A/E/C), facility management and environmental entities and individuals in the public and private sectors to prepare for—and overcome—natural and manmade disasters, and to improve security at home and abroad.
Headquartered in Alexandria, Va., SAME provides its more than 27,000 members extensive opportunities for training, education and professional development through a robust offering of conferences, workshops, networking events and publications. With a membership that includes recent service academy graduates and retired flag officers, project managers and corporate executives, Department of Defense civilians, private-sector experts and everyone in between, SAME is bridging the gaps between critical stakeholders to advance the field of military engineering and help secure our nation.
The San Francisco Post of SAME provides professional development and social opportunities for military, public agency, and private industry engineers, planners, and management consultants involved in military and public works projects that support national defense and the public welfare.
Our membership is open to all individuals interested or active in military affairs, engineering, and public works. To join and see how you can become involved contact anyone of our officers, attend one of our monthly meetings , or contact one of our members. The Post also has an active young member group open to all students, graduates, and new engineers interested in a military or engineering career. As part of our commitment to the future of the engineering field, the Post offers scholarships to graduating high school students intending to study engineering in college.
General membership meetings of the San Francisco Post are traditionally scheduled for the second Thursday of each month. Please check the events page of this website for specific meeting dates and locations.
