SAME's 2024 Capital Week – Recap Edition!

DOD Program Briefings NOW Available in the Attendee Service Center (ASC) until September 30, 2024.

Thank you for joining us at the 2024 Capital Week, March 25-27. Over 700 attendees came together at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel & Conference Center to support the SAME Foundation, gain insights on upcoming programs across the uniformed services and federal agencies, and discuss pressing issues facing the A/E/C industry.

To kick off the Capital Week festivities, SAME’s Academy of Fellows also coordinated a Silent Auction, with proceeds going to benefit the SAME Foundation. Members from across the Society contributed gifts and experiences ranging from hiking trips in the Rockies, beach houses with dinner, golf outings, sporting event tickets, and more. With the conclusion of the Silent Auction at the end of the day on Tuesday, the Academy of Fellows helped raise $37,000 in support of the Foundation and its programs building the next generation of engineering leaders.

To get Day One underway, a general session sponsored by our Titanium Sponsors (Black & Veatch, Jacobs, Stantec, and WSP) and featuring senior leadership from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, Air Force, and the Department of Veterans Affairs set the stage with a high-level look at their programs and where members can contribute.

Capital Week attendees also enjoyed a networking luncheon on Day One, with opportunities to meet and mingle with colleagues over lunch. During the luncheon, Jackie Robinson-Burnette, Associate Administrator, Office of Government Contracting & Business Development, provided an update on efforts underway at the Small Business Administration to advance and expand opportunities for small businesses in federal contracting.

The Ukraine Working Group started off Wednesday morning's schedule with a standing room only discussion on U.S. and industry participation in the reconstruction of Ukraine after Russia’s invasion two years prior.
