March 2017 – Congratulations to Nicole Foster, MSA’s Marketing Manager and President of the Society of Military Engineers (SAME) Hampton Roads Post, on her sound leadership that resulted in the Post’s recent designation as 2016 Top Large Post out of all of the large Posts throughout the world!
SAME is the premier professional military engineering association in the United States, uniting architecture, engineering, construction, environmental and related entities and individuals in the public and private sectors in support of national security. SAME has more than 30,000 members at 105 Posts throughout the US and the world. To be named a “Top Post” is a distinct honor, and as President, Foster knows this could not have been accomplished without the efforts of Past President J. Pat Rios, P.E., CEM, USN (Ret.) and the support of her Board Members, including MSA’s Vice President Douglas M. Will, P.E.
Foster and Will, along with other 2017-2018 Hampton Roads Post volunteers, were also recently recognized by SAME Executive Director Brig. Gen. Joseph “Joe” Schroedel, P.E., F.SAME, USA (Ret.) for their contributions to the Post. As a token of his appreciation, Schroedel presented Foster and Will with commemorative coins engraved with the SAME logo and crest.
