  • Greetings as we await the arrival of Spring!

    2017 wrapped up with several events highlighting the importance of improving resilience and sustainability throughout our region – from the power grid to buildings and waterfront infrastructure at the Shipyard. We also gathered together to enjoy good company and recognize those who have contributed so much to our Post and its wider community.

    We also organized the 2018 plan for Piscataqua Post, and of course it features the same perennial favorite social networking activities and informative professional development meetings. While most of our monthly events are well along in the planning process, there are still opportunities to present, sponsor, and volunteer. Please contact me at [please insert Post email address] if you are interested in supporting our upcoming activities in any way. Time, talent, and treasure are all welcome, and we can help identify small roles if you have limited resources, and large roles if you seek to develop your leadership skills and build stronger relationships within the Post. Stay tuned as our online calendar is fleshed out.

    • Attend or contribute to an upcoming meeting and presentation:
    • 22 February -- NAVFAC event – see website
    • 29 March -- UNH STEM Outreach event – see website
    • TBD April -- Albacore Submarine Museum event – stay tuned
    • TBD May -- Piscataqua Waterkeeper field outing – stay tuned
    • June OPEN
    • October OPEN
    • November OPEN

    Planning ahead for the crowd-pleasing social events:

    • TBD July --It will be hard to top the 2017 Golf Tournament, but we will do our best! Let’s all work together to make it as fun-filled and sociable as last year…starting with amazing July weather (hopefully). We will need volunteers for outreach, registration, refreshments, silent auction, and more.
    • TBD September -- We hope we can have more capacity for an expanded gathering on our Indian Summer Portsmouth Harbor Cruise, which will again be jointly hosted with EBC New England. Stay tuned for dates.
    • TBD December – Another Holiday Party, we hope once again to help support the US Marine Corps Toys for Tots program by bringing a donated toy, and enjoying seasonal cheer.

    SAME offers financial support for qualified high school students seeking to pursue education and careers in STEM fields, and also those eager to experience living and learning at a US Service Academy or similar setting. Currently SAME summer camps will need over 50 mentors for the 2018 season (and we are growing). Check out www.same.org/stemcamps for details on mentoring opportunities (and potential support) for adults and the application process for campers. The deadline for April camp in California is 1 March, with others soon after!

    As the drumbeat continues towards the 2020 centennial of SAME, we will highlight the history of our organization fostering the many ways military and civil engineering talent have collaborated to make our nation and the world more secure, environmentally sound, and prepared for military and natural hazards. Join as we hold events at historic venues as well as brewpubs and other memorable settings.


    We will continue to highlight our Post’s activities related to mentoring and professional development, and the evolving importance of resilience of critical infrastructure in the face of multiple threats. We also welcome and support the next generation of professionals in engineering and related fields. From middle school students exploring STEM fields through robotics, to high school students seeking expenses-paid SAME camps across the US, to scholarships and internships for college students, our Post lends a hand in many ways. If you haven't been to a Post meeting lately, please join us any time. Hope to see you soon at a monthly meeting.

    Respectfully,
    Wendi Goldsmith, PhD, PG
    SAME-Piscataqua Post President 2017-2018
