Registration is now open for the August Social at Camden Yards


Join us to visit the first of the "retro" major league ballparks - Oriole Park at Camden Yards. We will be accompanied on the tour by representatives of Baltimore-area companies involved with the planning, design, and construction of the Stadium. Afterwards, come back to Dempsey's where will pick the brain of O's official scorer Jim Henneman to find out more about a scorer's judgment calls, hear his perspective on the game, and enjoy behind-the-scenes anecdotes.

Registration Switch to RegOnline

Based on the success of registration during the recent Joint Engineering Training Symposium, our directors have voted to implement the same system, RegOnline, for monthly membership meetings. What does this mean to members? The most obvious change is the log-in screen and the elimination of the PayPal step. Other enhancements include: 1)Access to mobile registration, schedules, maps, and surveys; 2) The ability to browse directories and exchange personal information with QR (Quick Response) codes, without downloading a new app; and 3) Integration with social communities, such as: Twitter, Facebook, and Yelp!


For our directors RegOnline tabulates registrants and payments, in addition to printing name badges, thereby requiring less legwork in planning and executing each meeting. One disadvantage is that cancellations will now be charged a $5 fee; however, we feel that minor charge is worth the switch for this new, improved mode of operation. Hopefully you will agree!

So look for our new on-line registration process beginning with our December 18, 2013 networking session meeting!

The Student Mentoring Committee is seeking volunteers for the Baltimore Post Speaker's Bureau to speak to students at schools in the region about a career in STEM. For more details on the request, please consult the flyer and then complete the sign-up form if you can volunteer.

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.
