The DOD & Federal Agency Program Briefings provides SAME members a chance to hear about the projected upcoming fiscal year engineering, construction and environmental programs from contracting representatives, flag and general officers, and senior executive service leaders from the engineering components of the military services and select federal agencies.


This premier formal awards dinner recognizes two outstanding Americans: one, an SAME Fellow, for their contributions to the A/E/C profession; and the other, often a non-member, for their contributions to national security. The evening also includes a networking reception.


This event serves as the kick-off for the Investiture Ceremony and Golden Eagle Awards Dinner to follow. Current and new Fellows are welcome to attend, network, and hear presentations on topics of interest to the Academy of Fellows. [Event is open to Fellows only; spouses and guests are not permitted.]


The new Class of Fellows is invested into the Academy of Fellows each year during a ceremony preceding the Golden Eagle Awards Dinner. The ceremony includes presentation of the Gerald C. Brown Mentoring Award, which is given annually to an SAME Fellow for outstanding mentoring and support of the SAME mission. Registration is not required for this event. All those wishing to support the new class of Fellows may attend.
