The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.
Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.
The Greater Kansas City Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Greater Kansas City Post membership.

Event Description: Presented by Damon S. Hacker, MBA, CISA, CSXF, CMMC-RP, President & CEO, Vestige Digital Investigations. The presentation will introduce the Department of Defense's (DoD) cybersecurity evolution from BIST 800-171 to the new Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC). During the presentation, Damon will explore the DoD's rationale for implementing this, but most importantly educate DoD suppliers as to how to navigate the requirement and understand the DoD's expectations. if you are one of the 221,000+ suppliers to the DoD - whether big or small, whether prime or subcontractor, if you handle Federal Contract Information (FCI) or Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI), you will need to become certified to bid on contracts starting as early as 2021. The presentation will conclude with a complete path forward on becoming certified and explore why the process will likely take most organizations six months or more to become certified. Cost: $25 per private sector | $10 per virtual attend | Free for government, public sector, and students (in person and virtual)
Note: Monthly membership meetings are typically the third Thursday of each month.
