SSE Marketing Director Attends St. Louis SAME Conference

ST. LOUIS, MO- Schultz & Summers Engineering (SSE) Marketing Director Rodney Jetton just returned from the Society of American Engineers (SAME) annual Joint Engineer Training conference and expo held in St. Louis Missouri.  Jetton said, "It was a very informative and helpful event.  I met some great people, made some good business connections and learned a lot about the direction our military will be taking over the next few years."

For 2012, SAME HQ planned a strong technical program that laid the foundation for the conference and supported a robust, informational expo area, as well as exciting technical tours and ample networking and social events.  There were six technical tracks addressing timely issues affecting the A/E/C, facility management and environmental fields.

Track 1: Joint Engineer Contingency Operations (JECO)
Track 2: Sustainable Installations
Track 3: Sustainable Design and Construction
Track 4: Small Business Strategies for Success *NEW*
Track 5: Environmental Management *NEW*
Track 6: Acquisition

In addition to numerous technical sessions there were four topic-specific workshops where more in-depth information was covered on Engineering Ethics, Military Education and Training,
Theater Construction Management Systems (TCMS) and Leadership & Mentoring for Military Engineers.   Schultz and Summers Engineering owner Stan Schultz added, "Our small Hubzone company is new in the Federal marketplace and having Rod, who is a Marine, enables us to get more involved in a quality organization like SAME, which has been a real blessing.  We look forward to getting more involved and doing our part to help move America forward."

Some of the speakers included Navy Seal Eric Greitens, Ph.D, current SAME President Rear Adm. Christopher Mossey, and incoming SAME President Tony Leketa.  Some of the social events included the golf tournament, a 5K fun run, a Society Ball and a City Museum Ice Breaker.  

"I enjoyed the meetings, events and networking opportunities.  My wife loved the Ball and we made some great friendships that I look forward to strengthening.  I'm already looking forward to next year's event in San Diego," concluded Jetton.
