A Message from Piscataqua Post President Steve Cook

I am honored and excited to be installed as the newest President of the Piscataqua Post. My first involvement with SAME was in 2005 when I was self employed. Not only did the post meetings provide a great networking opportunity, but I actually got work from the conversations and resulting relationships. In addition to the business partnership potential, the SAME also gives individuals and member firms a chance to participate in the society’s overall mission, which is, per the SAME website - To promote and facilitate engineering support for national security by developing and enhancing relationships and competencies among uniformed services, public- and private-sector engineers and related professionals, and by developing future engineers through outreach and mentoring. Additionally, SAME was formed from this vow - In 1919, Maj. Gen. William M. Black, USA, the Army's Chief of Engineers, appointed a nine-officer board to consider the formation of an "association of engineers" that would preserve and expand upon connections formed in war and promote the advancement of engineering and its related professions. Early in 1920, the first SAME Posts were established, providing former colleagues and new members opportunities to connect face-to-face, and establishing Post-to-community relationships across the country. As we press on into the future, I ask that all of you reflect on the Society’s founding principles and try to utilize and reinforce them in our undertakings.

As my first order of business, I wish to thank Dr. Geoffrey Brown for his outstanding efforts and performance as our President during his term. Our most important and noteworthy efforts, from scholarships to fund raising events, developed and prospered under Geoff’s leadership and the board that he guided. I’m sure you will all join me in extending our appreciation and gratitude to Geoff and the Board of Directors for a job well done.

Moving forward, I hope to continue the Post’s exceptional reputation for mission accomplishment while fostering our superb environment of friendly, personal and professional interactions which make our meetings and the Post itself the place to be for science, engineering and construction professionals as well as our local military. I look forward to working with our dedicated Board of Directors and the entire membership over the next year. I also appreciate in advance any comments or suggestions from all hands on items of interest to the Post or potential improvements.

Best wishes to everyone as I look forward to working together with you in the months to come.

Steve
