Dear Greater Kansas City Post Members,

  

Tonight my house was the scene of the first ever GKCP Board of Directors BBQ. When I became Post President in January, I had 5 elements that I wanted to focus on...outside of the SAME mission. These were more of a personal 'mission.' One of those was to include family. We give so much time to our jobs and to SAME that I don't want to take any more time away from our families than we already do. So this family event was a first, and it exceeded all my expectations. Being surrounded by this group of folks that I have worked and brainstormed and strategized with, many years with some and only a matter of months with others...it's always a true pleasure. I genuinely enjoy sharing my time with these folks. So to the amazing GKCP BOD and committee chairs...thank you! Every great thing we do as a Post ties directly back to you.

As you know our Society recently switched leadership. It was sad for me personally to see Dr. Bob Wolff pass on the position of Executive Director that he has held since 2002. Dr. Wolff is the only XD I have worked with in SAME. I served on the National Board of Direction and the Executive Committee with him. Dr. Wolff believes in SAME and made tremendous strides in all he accomplished as XD. In Dr. Wolff's exit interview that was published in the August 2014 Young Member Council newsletter, he encouraged Young Members to get involved and take on leadership positions in SAME to benefit their personal and professional growth. I can thank him personally for providing me opportunities in SAME to do just that.

This week I participated in a call for all Post Presidents and our new SAME Executive Director, Brig. Gen. Joseph "Joe" Schroedel (Ret). In this call he explained the three roles he sees that SAME HQ needs to fulfill: support the posts, provide national direction, and help establish our national reputation. Gen. Schroedel talked about ideas like expanding our engineering summer camps to all sorts of cities (and not just on military installations), and creating endowments. I could sense the enthusiasm that Gen. Schroedel has for this XD role and I am confident that he will continue to point our organization in the right directions.

 

I want to end this note to you by pointing out that the recent TME magazine that came out had THREE spotlights for the Greater Kansas City Post. Page 4 had a picture of our new Kansas State University student chapter. Page 77 highlighted our STEM ladder. Page 83 included a note and picture from our Warrior Transition Networking Forum. It's kind of like one of those Where's Waldo books, I just keep finding our Post popping up with all these great articles!

 

Thank you Greater Kansas City Post for everything you do to support our mission and for all the time you give. You all are FANTASTIC! (Oh, and I included a few party pics from our BOD BBQ because pictures are worth a thousand words!)

CGSC Annual Engineer Social

by Ann Ewy 

 

The annual Engineer Social for new Command and General Staff College engineer class (Class 2015) was held at local favorite, Boulevard Brewing Company, on 24 July 2014. For those of you who have attended this event in the past, you know what an energetic and unique event it is. For those of you who haven't, I'd really encourage you to join us next year.

 

Our Post has a very unique and special relationship with the Command and General Staff College at Ft. Leavenworth. Each year we host a social to welcome the new class, especially knowing that many of these folks are in the Kansas City area for the first time. Talk about a great way to showcase KC...viewing downtown Kansas

 City from a local favorite brewery, eating a KC favorite BBQ dinner and surrounded by a large number of folks who are part of one of the largest engineering communities in the country. And it's a great way to showcase our Post. This is an example of another quality event that the Greater Kansas City Post hosts that I am very proud of.

 
ThIs year's event included a presentation by the Post President, words by Dean Kevin Truman from the University of Missouri Kansas City school of Computing and Engineering Science, and LTC Wettack from the CGSC.

 

We have been having our social events twice a year. One is the January timeframe hosted by the CGSC at Ft Leavenworth for one class, and one hosted by our Post in the summer for that class. With only one CGSC class next year, the January social will not be held. So plan now to join us next summer for this annual event and help us showcase our Post and our great city!

GKCP Support to UMKC SCE

by  Ann Ewy

 

The Greater Kansas City Post and the University of Missouri Kansas City have a very special relationship. Dean Kevin Truman's arrival at the School of Computing and Engineering marked a milestone in building that relationship. Our Post now has a thriving student chapter at UMKC and we have held a number of our Industry Day events at the UMKC campus.

 

The Greater Kansas City Post recently

supported the SCE thru a generous donation of $7,500. Post President Ann Ewy presented the check to Dean Truman at the Command General Staff College social on 24 July 2014. Dean Truman explained to those in attendance that the funds will be allocated to the Dean's Discretionary Fund which is used to provide extra assistance in a variety of areas of the school. Most typically, the School of Computing and Engineering finds itself in need of additional financial assistance for equipment and software upgrades essential to providing a cutting-edge education. Many times, the Dean also uses donations to the discretionary fund for assisting student organizations with their projects or faculty in their continued scholarship. The School of Computing and Engineering at UMKC has exploded in enrollments in the past five years. In fact, the student population inside SCE has nearly doubled! However, the budget the school has to work with has not kept the same pace, making philanthropic donations for education excellence more critical than ever. The SCE has expressed their appreciation of the continued support and partnership with SAME and thanks the organization for the generous contribution.

Continuing Our Mission: GKC Post Maintains Support to Transitioning Veterans

by Tony Hofmann

  

The GKC Post Warrior in Transition Committee hosted the second Warrior Transition Networking Forum at Fort Leavenworth on Thursday, September 18. The forum is a testament to the Post's proactive commitment to educate, mentor and assist transitioning veterans and spouses who are or will soon be transitioning from the military into the civilian sector. Ensuring the ideals of SAME were integrated into the forum, the session at Fort Leavenworth provided the same quality information to attendees as the first forum at Fort Riley in April.

 

Leveraging leaders at the Command and General Staff College and the Soldier For Life--Transition Assistance Program to promote the forum, 42 personnel attended the session.

Attendees provided candid feedback and, to a person, stated that the format and quality of GKC Post panel members was extremely beneficial in educating them about the transition process. This feedback and interaction from attendees validated that the GKC Post is meeting our intended goals to assist transitioning veterans to: 

  1. expand their interest in career fields associated with GKC Post SAME Sustaining Member firms
  2. network with professionals associated with SAME Sustaining Member firms,
  3. inform them about the skill sets and other tools/tips necessary to be successful in civilian career fields (to include helping them understand how their military skills/experience/leadership is applicable in the civilian job market),
  4. offer mentorship and professional development through SAME, and
  5. encourage SAME membership to enhance their long-term networking opportunities.


 

 


 

Mark Loes (Kleinfelder), Jackie Hacker (HDR), Tony Hofmann (Colonel, USA, retired) (Stantec) and LTC Kevin Casey (Command and General Staff College) organized the event. Tony Hofmann moderated the event, with the following GKC Post members doing an exceptional job as panel members: Matt Metcalf (TEPA) and Al Osborne (Commander, USN, retired) (Ascentra Group), Eric Omundson (Command Sergeant Major, USA, retired) (US Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District), Joe Lykins (Major, USA, retired) (Tyco SimplexGrinnell), Scott Fehnel (Lieutenant Colonel, USA, retired) (HNTB), and Victor Poland (Burns and McDonnell). Art DeGroat (Lieutenant Colonel, USA, retired) (Kansas State University) also provided valuable insights in the planning process leading up to the forum.

 

In addition to questions and answers with panel members, the forum included ample opportunity for one-on-one interaction following the open discussion.

 

  

 

The SAME GKC Post is proud to support our Transitioning Warriors. The GKC Post members share in the unfaltering commitment to do right by our uniformed service men and women that have defended our country. Combining the resources of SAME with the professional commitment to veterans seeking employment in the civilian sector, we can proactively provide them the tools to help them be successful through the challenging transition process. This is our mission and commitment. The Warrior in Transition Committee is already planning a future venue to continue this exceptional support!

  

The following quote from LTC Wayne Sodowsky, Fort Leavenworth Command and General Staff College is a fine tribute to the program and GKC:

 

"Great event last evening! Thanks to all the panel members for spending

the time to talk with the group. This forum augments the DoD Transition

Assistance Program nicely by providing relevant experiences from those

who've actually gone through the process and work in the field now, many of

whom are in the hiring chain directly or indirectly(networking). The format

was good in that the panel established what their individual circumstances

were when they transitioned, retiree vs. separated vs. reservist, current

employer & job description/responsibilities, and then addressed salient

points from their transition experience. The panel then responded to

questions from the group, sometimes passionately and often with a touch of

humor but always with the intent of fully answering the question that was

asked. This was definitely a worthwhile event. Thanks again to SAME!"

Name, Title and Employer

Larry L. Myers, Executive Assistant

US Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District

 

    

What is your position with Greater Kansas City Post?

I'm currently serving as the Missouri River Region Fellows Point of Contact, as well as a member of the GKCP Fellow Committee. I have served in positions as Post President and Regional Vice President. 

 

What is your "day job"?

I currently serve as the District's Executive Assistant, Executive Officer Administrative Manager, and principal civilian assistant to the Commander. I'm the liaison and provide coordination with the District's administrative staff, staffs of other districts and higher headquarters and commands.

 

How did you become involved with SAME ?

I became involved with SAME in 1983 when I received a flyer in the mail from former Post President, Gurnie Gunter. The flyer contained information about SAME and the benefits of membership. I was still young in my career and was to join a professional organization. I liked the mission and vision statements of SAME and decided to join. After attending my first meeting, I received a call from then Post Vice President John Stovall. John asked if I would join the arrangements committee. My whole purpose in joining was to get involved so I said, yes.  It's been a very rewarding experience ever since.

  

What role has SAME played in your professional life?

SAME has been a blessing to me as well as I have been a blessing to them (smile). The leadership education training, networking opportunities and friendships I've developed across the country, through SAME, are priceless. Since joining SAME I have learned so much professionally. I have been fortunate to be mentored by some of the brightest professionals of high integrity in the nation and taking advantage of the training and activities offered by SAME.

 

What SAME accomplishment are you most proud of?

There are so many accomplishments I'm proud of since being part of this great organization. But, if I have to pick one, it would be when I was Co-Chair of SAME JETC with COL (Ret) Don Curtis and Rick Cunningham. It was an experience that bonded me with these two gentlemen for life. Here's a funny story I want to share. It was zero hour and the conference would commence in four days. We were told from the meeting planner (we had hired) that we were $200K in the red. When we heard this Don said, Gentlemen, there's got to be an error somewhere. If not, we all better head down to our banker. Well, there was an error, but not in the red. We ended up with a profit of $200K.  That really embarked the Post on our Mentoring and Education (M&E) Fund and not only for the GKC Post but also for the National SAME M&E Fund as well. Bob Wolf, immediate past Executive Director, contributes GKC Post as the catalyst to the start of the National's M&E Fund.  This has been so exciting and rewarding!

 

What would you like to see the Greater Kansas City Post accomplish in the near future?

I would like for us to become more involved in the nation's infrastructure. Not in the way you're thinking, but in the mentoring and education initiatives for our young minds. There is so much talent in our young people out there today that we need to invest in them and develop encouraging them to become engineers and scientists. This in turn will bring about the ingenious and creative skills of these trained minds that will solve our nation's infrastructure issues we're experiencing today.

  

What benefits do you see for our community through SAME's work?

SAME GKC Post is an integral part of our community reaching out on many levels. Taking a page from one of our illustrious colleagues (Ms. J. Hacker), SAME provides community services to  such programs as Habitat for Humanity, professional development opportunities and training, education and mentoring to our local elementary, high schools, and colleges, including our military personnel; as examples. Community outreach efforts are provided by our volunteer SAME members. Our community benefits from the SAME activities and opportunities that promotes education to our kids, promotes interest in the math and science fields, promotes the sustainment of current and future engineers; and, our SAME mentors sharing their years of experience and knowledge helping build future leaders.

 

What would you say to an individual thinking about getting involved with Greater Kansas City Post? 

I would say, don't think any longer. You're delaying an integral part of your professional and leadership development. SAME provides a host of opportunities that other professional organizations don't provide; i.e., education, networking mentoring and leadership development opportunities both locally and nationally. The training offered is outstanding and relevant to one's career. The mentoring and leadership opportunities are limitless. If you work in the public or private sector working in the federal industry you need to be an active member of SAME. You will receive so much more value than the membership fee you pay. I can't see anyone working in the federal industry and not be a member of SAME.

Coastal Environmental Group, Inc.

 

 

Since founded in 1997, Coastal Environmental Group, Inc. has been helping to solve some of the world's toughest and most sensitive environmental and construction problems.

 

As a Small Business Administration -certified HUBZone and New York-certified MBE/DBE contractor headquartered in Edgewood, NY, with operating offices in Omaha, NE, Oak Ridge, TN, New Orleans, LA, Los Angeles, CA, and Hartford, CT, our 17-year history of business operations include performing more than 2,300 projects nationwide - many of which were complex, high-profile, time-sensitive or fast-track rivaling the capabilities of much

larger firms.

 

Our journey began in Environmental Remediation; since then we have expanded our service business lines into Civil, Marine and Commercial Construction, Energy Services, Emergency Response and Disaster Recovery. We have 144 personnel in 6 offices throughout the country and proven experience as a Prime Contractor for 11 Federal Agencies throughout 15 states - which currently services (10) active Federal Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOCs) and one (1) Single Award Task Order Contract, with a combined capacity of $583M.

 

This experience has afforded COASTAL the ability to develop an in-depth understanding of federal, state, and local regulations, as well as the capacity to form vital relationships with communities, local trade unions, specialty firms and a large pool of pre-qualified subcontractors and vendors.

 

COASTAL has provided emergency response services in the aftermath of the World Trade Center attacks and debris removal and hazardous waste cleanup after Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. We are particularly proud of our proven track record to self-perform work, which is largely made possible by hiring from the local communities that we work in. As exemplified most recently as part of the Hurricane Sandy Fire Island Debris Removal project -- within a 30-day period COASTAL interviewed more than 1,000 applicants and hired 484 from the affected community. Since Hurricane Sandy made landfall October 2012, we have performed more than $36M in Emergency Response, Time-Critical Repairs and Debris Removal for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, National Park Service, New York City DEP, and Metropolitan Transit Authority  
  

Sevenson


   

Sevenson's initiation into remedial construction occurred in 1979. In that year, Sevenson's predecessor, the Albert Elia Building Co. Inc., was selected as the principal contractor for cleanup work at the Love Canal Site. The company's success at the Love Canal project led to other cleanup projects. In the 1980's, the company, which was then operating under the Sevenson name, built a national reputation for reliability and competence in the emerging field of environmental remediation.

 

Sevenson's relationship with the Kansas City District US Army Corps of Engineers in remediation construction began in 1985 and has evolved over the years into a partnership. Together, the Kansas City District and Sevenson have worked to address difficult design and construction issues at several of the most sensitive and complex Superfund sites in the United States. This relationship has been tested and strengthened through the management, execution, and safe completion of hundreds of firm fixed price and cost reimbursable task orders issued under several individual and multiple award contracts.

 

Sevenson provides a range of services. These include: excavation and earthwork; HTRW materials handling, processing and treatment; solidification and stabilization; metals fixation; slurry wall and trench construction; collection, recovery and treatment systems construction; temporary and mobile water treatment systems design, operations and maintenance; dredging, dewatering and volume reduction; sediment remediation; innovative and traditional steel sheeting systems; and constructability review and design phase consulting.

 

Today, Sevenson is well established as one of the country's leading remedial construction and environmental dredging contractors with over 1,400 projects with a combined value of over $3.8 million successfully completed. We look forward to continuing the partnership with the Kansas City District for many years to come.
