Matt MetcalfDear Greater Kansas City Post Members:

 

It is a distinct personal honor to serve this year as President of the Greater Kansas City Post of The Society of American Military Engineers. I am pleased to announce that we were just notified by Headquarters that our Post has achieved Distinguished Post status for the second year in a row and for the eighth time in the past ten years! Achieving this status requires a lot of energy and passion and I thank you for your sacrifice and professionalism. I would also like to thank Past President Colonel Tony Hofmann, PMP for his leadership over the past year.

 

The GKC Post's Annual Sponsors Program continues to grow and I would once again like to thank this year's annual sponsors. The Post's annual sponsorship program provides a simple, convenient and cost effective way for our member firms to sponsor all major GKC Post activities on an annual basis. Their generous contributions to the Post make it possible to sustain a robust and diverse group of programs and initiatives throughout the year. This year's sponsors include: JE Dunn, HNTB, HDR, Yaeger Architecture, SAIC, Terracon, Affinis, Wilson & Company, Black & Veatch, Coastal, The Louis Berger Group, Cabrera Services, Poole Fire Protection, Ecology and Environment, Sevenson, Stantec, SM Wilson, and Burns and McDonnell.

Industry Day Update

The Kansas City area was battered by back-to-back, major snowstorms in February which required us to reschedule the 5th Annual Industry Day event. The event will now be held on April 1 & 2 and the Kansas City District's One-on-Ones will be held on April 3 at the Bolling Federal Building. We apologize for any inconvenience but the safety of our Post members and guests is paramount. We look forward to seeing you in April!

Special Recognition

I am pleased to announce that Kleinfelder has been awarded the Society of American Military Engineers 2012 Seymour S. Greenfield Sustaining Member Award for eminent contributions to SAME. The award will be presented at the Honors Luncheon at the 2013 JETC conference in San Diego, CA on May 22.

SAME and CGSC continue to grow partnership  

By LTC Kevin R. Casey, CGSC Faculty Member & Matt Metcalf, P.E., SAME GKC Post President 
 
 

Each year 60 to 80 Army Engineer Majors head to Fort Leavenworth's Command and General Staff College (CGSC) to study and prepare for future senior Engineer leadership positions in the United States Army. The CGSC Engineer faculty has partnered with the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) - Greater Kansas City (GKC) Post to develop and improve upon ties among the military, academia and industry over the course of the academic year. The Kansas City area boasts the fourth la

Brigadier General Deluca, LTC Casey and Dr. Kevin Truman, University of Missouri Kansas City Dean of the School of Computing and Engineering at a social event welcoming a new class of Engineer students from CGSC.

rgest concentration of engineering firms and licensed engineers in the country, providing an excell
ent opportunity to foster relationships between the military and industry. While the main focus during the students' time at CGSC remains the development of field grade leadership, operations, and planning skills, this partnership between CGSC and the SAME Greater Kansas City Post has increased the opportunities for the Engineer students to improve and refine their engineering technical skills. 

 

Current initiatives from this CGSC - SAME GKC Post partnership include the addition of engineer focused electives. These electives include an opportunity for CGSC students to work with local engineering and construction firms including JE Dunn and Black & Veatch or with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Kansas City District. The CGSC student engineers also have an opportunity to work with the SAME GKC Post and local universities to prep for the Professional Engineer (PE) and Project Manager Professional (PMP) exams during their elective period. This year, CGSC students have students have also participated in SAME KC post mentorship program. In the future, the intent is to expand and solidify this affiliation by inspiring CGSC students to compete for a Distinguished CGSC Engineer Award, sponsored by the SAME GKC Post in 2014. The goal of this award would be to reward a CGSC student who contributes the most to the military, academia and industry partnership during their time at CGSC.

 

CGSC Engineers and faculty have been involved in multiple SAME GKC Post events in 2012 and 2013. These events include two welcome socials with the two incoming classes of CGSC students who usually arrive sometime in January and July. Brigadier General Deluca, the Engineer School Commandant, and COL Tony Hofmann, SAME GKC 2012 Post President along with dozens of SAME members welcomed the CGSC Engineer students to Kansas City and CGSC during these events. In 2012, the July event was held at a Kansas City microbrewery and the January 2013 event was held at a local Leavenworth historic building.

 

CGSC Students also participated in monthly luncheons including a recent event with the Kansas City mayor, Sly James, and they will participate in the upcoming SAME GKC Post Industry Day event in February 2013. In 2012-2013, we also had two CGSC students involved in a SAME mentorship program with local schools to support SAME GKC Post efforts.

 

The CGSC elective period takes place during the last three months of the CGSC experience and provides a great opportunity for Engineers to improve their engineering knowledge and skills. During the 2013 elective period, we will have three students that will train with Kansas City engineering firms (and SAME partners) JE Dunn and Black & Veatch. Ten students will also train with the USACE KC District during the elective period. In addition, we also have four students preparing and taking the PE exam and thirty three students who are planning to take the PMP exam during the elective period. To prepare for the exams, the CGSC student could be involved either with student led study groups or take a class with a local university such as University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) during this elective period. These electives can enhance a student's ability to obtain the new Engineer Officer Skill Identifiers such as W3 - Professional Engineer (PE), and W5 - Project Management Professional that will be offered starting in April 2013.

 

With continued relationship building in mind, the GKC Post is already planning other events for members and CGSC Engineers to interact, including events in April and July of 2013.

    SAME Judges

    the Science Pioneers Science Fair at Union Station in Kansas City. Amy McCurdy, Bill Yord, Merrill Watt, and Kyle Marlay volunteered to judge 40 eligible projects and award SAME Society Silver Medal, Certificate of Excellence and a $100 check. The awards are given to outstanding senior level (9th - 12th grades) science fair projects in three categories:

    • Earth/Space Science
    • Environmental and Renewable Energy
    • Engineering

    Judges had a difficult decision as the projects showed intensive research, experimentation and data collection by students. In order to help with the process, judges read through reports presented by the students and studied the project presentation boards created by the students. Once this action was complete, the judges gathered to compare notes and vote for their favorites. It took about three hours to select the three winners.

    About 800 people attended the presentation at the Awards Ceremony for the 62nd Annual Kansas City Science and Engineering Fair at the Sheraton Crown Center on March 16.

    This year's winners of the SAME Special Awards were:

    UMKC student chapter member attends SAME Student Leaders Workshop

    By Jacob Oldham, UMKC SAME Chapter Member

     

    The Annual SAME Student Leaders Workshop (SLW) was held Jan. 24-26 in Glendale, AZ. With 51 active SAME Posts participating, the SLW served as a forum for Student Leaders form SAME Student Chapters from to meet and discuss the operations and opportunities tied with their chapters.

     

    SAME was able to allow for a diverse group of professionals and students to come together and allow us to improve ourselves and our SAME Student Chapters. Military and civilian engineering professionals were available to answer questions about their experiences and how lessons they have learned may be applicable to us as student leaders and future professionals. The SLW also provided a great chance to discuss what is working and not working at our chapters and time to brainstorm.

     

    In addition to the opportunity to learn from professionals and other students, the SLW also included a visit to Luke Air Force Base. During the visit, students gained insight into what is required of engineers in the military and about the military engineers' day-to-day activities. Students also received a tour of the hangers that house some of the U.S. Air Force's F-16 fighter jets. Another topic of interest was the idea of holding a competition in the future between chapters in the future. Guidelines and rules are currently in process for the competition, which would feature making a Rude Goldeberg machine, which involves creating a complex and intricate machine and process to complete a simple task.

     

    Throughout this workshop, I received information in quality and quantity that will be very useful in bettering the student chapter. It was an enjoyable workshop with meeting new people and having new experiences.

    CGSC students assist areas schools with Future Cities competition

    By Merrill Watt, P.E.

      

    GKC SAME Command and General Staff College (CGSC) Engineer officer students served as Future Cites engineer mentor-speakers in Lansing, KS and Fort Leavenworth schools. This involvement fits into the post's commitment to STEM education for kindergarten through 12th grades.

     

    Future City Competition is a national, project-based learning experience where students in sixth through eighth grades imagine, design and build cities in the future. The Future City competition scope entails:

    • Developing basic understanding of the design theme for their city. 2012 theme is storm water pollution.
    • Using SIMCITY 4 software to design their virtual future city.
    • Building a physical model of their virtual city.
    • Explaining their design through a report presentation with questions and answers.

     

    Engineer mentors met twice with a Future City team, which is comprised of four students, between September and December with students from Lansing Middle School and Fort Leavenworth MacArthur School.

     

    CGSC engineer branch student officers, several of whom are who are SAME members or prospective members, were offered the chance to mentor by LTC Kevin Casey, CKC Post's CGSC EN Os POC. Maj. Jeff Jenson and Maj. Tom Piazze volunteered their time. Both of them have experience with project planning, engineering design, construction, quality control, scheduling, contracting and management from their leadership assignments around the world.

     

    Each school's winning team was entered into the Great Plains Region Competition, which includes Kansas and Missouri, in January at Kansas State University. About 50 teams competed.

    Changes in SAME Bylaws

    From the SAME National Board of Directors

     

    The SAME Board of Direction approved changes to the SAME Bylaws on March 4, 2013. To allow for changes in our Membership Database, they will become effective on July 1, 2013. The updated Bylaws in their entirety are available on the SAME Society Operations website at www.same.org/societyops.

    1. Change in Age for Young Member. The Board changed the age of a Young Member from 35 to 39, consistent with many other professional societies. The consensus of the Board was that the benefits will accrue to SAME by expanding the range of the Young Member population as we continue to emphasize mentoring of young professionals and allowing them to take leadership roles in SAME. Currently, there are about 3,500 Young Members in SAME. We estimate this change in age will result in an additional 400 Young Members.
    2. Addition of Young Members to Sustaining Member and Public Agency Memberships. The Board approved the addition of one Young Member to each of SAME's 4,900 Post Memberships. The only cost to SAME is the cost of mailing TME. While many companies do not currently fill all of their five positions, those that do would benefit from having an additional Young Member position without additional cost and it will foster the involvement of Young Members in our Posts. For Public Agencies, the Board approved the addition of five Young Members to each Public Agency membership. This will enable public agencies, which have limited resources, to allow Young Members to join SAME at no additional cost without taking the place of the more senior agency officials who are currently assigned to most of the Public Agency memberships.  
    3. Establishment of a Fellows Emeritus Category. The Board approved the establishment of a Fellows Emeritus category, as recommended by the Academy of Fellows. The designation will be given to any active SAME Fellow who is a Life Member when he or she reaches the age of 70. SAME HQ will waive the registration fee for this category of Fellows for the two major SAME national events (e.g., JETC and Golden Eagle Dinner).
    If you have any questions on the above changes, or the updated Bylaws, please send an email to SAME Executive Director Dr. Robert D. Wolff, P.E., F.SAME.

    SAME establishes national Architectural Practice Committee

    From the SAME National 

     

    SAME recently established a national Architectural Practice Committee with a mission "to promote architectural practice within SAME, broaden the organization's exposure in the architectural community, and recruit more architects, along with expanding networking and mentoring opportunities".  At the local level the Architectural Practice Committee is concentrating on bringing architectural activities in the local SAME Post and collaborating with the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Chapter.  We believe there are opportunities to co-sponsor meetings and events as well as to share resources between the two organizations. These architectural orientated activities will benefit current SAME architects and attract others to SAME.
