Public Agency Membership in SAME

SAME’s Public Agency membership gives you the opportunity to network with professionals outside your service branch or organization (from both the public and private-sectors) who are working collaboratively to identify and resolve national security infrastructure-related challenges. A lot is demanded of your agency to plan and execute your work. SAME provides your agency the opportunity to successfully conduct market research, find the trusted contractors you need to meet requirements, develop relationships, and build trust. Public agencies include federal, state, county, city/local government and public utilities.

As your public agency membership allows you to name up to ten individual representatives, you’ll also demonstrate your commitment to the people who make things happen for your organization.  Your membership will empower your team to achieve big things and maximize organizational efficiency by providing access to all of SAME’s resources and a community of peers that can help them get the job done every day.


Join as a Public Agency today and enjoy these benefits:

  • Build your organization’s relationships and network with the public and private sectors in an above-board forum and outside a formal framework
  • Show your commitment to open dialogue, the profession, and your mission with listings in both our public-facing and members-only Sustaining Member Directory; you’ll gain further market penetration with an individual listing for each of your agency representatives in our member-only individual member directory.
  • Perform market research and gain market access through national conferences, regional symposiums, industry days, and small business fairs.
  • Build your brand by exhibiting at or sponsoring events, advertising in The Military Engineer magazine, and more.
  • Create local relationships and connect with decision-makers where you have offices with active participation in one or more of our chapters (we call them Posts). One post is included in your membership and you have the opportunity to join additional Posts that will expand your reach in all the markets you serve. Our network of over 100 Posts gives you opportunities locally – all across the globe.
  • Provide your named representatives with all the benefits as an SAME individual member, demonstrating your commitment to their success and professional development.

SAME membership terms are on an anniversary cycle, so you will renew on the anniversary of your join date. A Public Agency membership belongs to the organization and includes membership in one chapter (we call them Posts) and allows you to list up to ten individual representatives. These representatives also gain all the benefits of an individual member. If your Public Agency Membership lapses beyond our 90-day grace period, your membership term will begin on the day you renew.

SAME Public Agency Membership is $325 for three years for every 10 representatives.

“We are establishing at this time a Society of American Military Engineers. This society will serve no selfish purpose. It is dedicated to patriotism and national security. Its objects are, in brief, to promote solidarity and co-operation between engineers in civil and military life, to disseminate technical knowledge bearing upon progress in the art of war and the application of engineering science thereto, and to preserve and maintain the best standards and traditions of the profession, all in the interests of patriotism and national security.”

–The Military Engineer magazine, January 1920
