In accordance with Article VI of the SAME bylaws, the Executive Director may establish a Senior Executive Group (SEG) to discuss topics of interest to SAME. The SEG will normally meet twice a year at locations determined by the Executive Director. The purpose of this group is to discuss topics of mutual interest to SAME Sustaining Member companies and the DOD engineering components. The U.S. Navy Chief of Civil Engineers, U.S. Army Chief of Engineers, and the Air Force Civil Engineer, and their respective Directors of Contracting, or their designated representatives, will be invited to the SEG meetings to participate in the discussions in their official capacities without regard to their membership in SAME.
Industry Nominations and Appointments:
The SEG shall consist of 12-15 Presidents, Chief Executive Officers or Senior Corporate Officers of Sustaining Member companies or subordinate divisions thereof, the SAME President, President-Elect, two National Vice Presidents and the Executive Director. Private-sector members normally serve two-year terms, but may be extended by the Executive Director.
The SEG will normally meet in the spring and fall in the Washington, D.C., area. The meetings present an opportunity for frank discussion of issues related to improving the delivery of engineering products and services. Issues are solicited from the SEG members and invited government officials and discussed openly in the forum. The meeting is not recorded but a summary is provided in The Military Engineer (TME) magazine. The intent is to educate the engineering services chiefs on challenges facing industry in delivering products and services to the uniformed services and to education industry on the Service requirements and business processes.
