PREVIOUS EVENTS


Post Participates in Wreaths Across America


We were honored today to lay wreaths on the graves of our fallen heroes.  Post members participated in ceremonies and placing wreaths at Garrison Forest and Crownsville Veteran’s Cemeteries. The Post sponsored 40 wreaths. Thanks to the Philanthropic committee and Andrew ParkerStacy Kahatapitiya, and Dierdre Crowl for organizing this event!


Federal Briefings Draw 400

It was great to see everyone at our Annual Federal Briefings event!

Over 400 people networked and heard from numerous federal agencies on their FY23 plans starting with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Baltimore District and ending with U.S. Department of the Interior. We had the Morgan State University Color Guard begin the meeting.  We acknowledged our student posts at Morgan State and United States Naval Academy, who has the engineer's appreciation dinner coming up in March. We acknowledged our scholarship recipients for 2022, some of which were in attendance (if they were not taking finals).  Did you know the Post awards $30,000 in scholarships annually? Our raffle netted over $2,000 in donations for Warrior Canine Connection! Announced our Gala for the Society of American Military Engineers Centennial coming up in April 2023 (better late than never)!

The weather couldn't have been better for our October sporting clays event at the Point at Pintail in Queenstown, MD. Over 50 shooters competed for bragging rights as well as trophies sponsored by KCI Technologies, Inc. The high scorers hit 43 out of 50 clays!

 

All of this fun raised $10,000 for our scholarship fund, which provides $30,000 in scholarships each year in addition to sponsoring education and mentoring events.

Volunteers Needed for Morgan State Student Chapter

The Post is working with a professor at Morgan State University to set up a Student Chapter.  In support of this Student Chapter, we are looking for professional volunteers to mentor students with their senior capstone projects.  We anticipate volunteers will support the students by meeting with them via phone/zoom/teams on occasion to discuss their project and field questions. We are also hoping volunteers will be able to participate in the poster sessions and/or final presentations to interact and ask questions, if available, later this year.  Contact Ivy Harvey or Bob Helkowski to sign up to help!


Join A Committee!

We have a full calendar this year, and the Baltimore Post is currently looking for passionate individuals to lead and participate in our various committees. If you are interested in leading or joining a committee, please contact our Post Secretary, Elaine Guarriello.


We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their community.  Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.  Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.  However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership (which includes leadership by example), being accepted into the Academy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are granted this recognition.  The selection process is not a competition.
