Dear Omaha Post Members,
I hope your holidays were relaxing, and included enjoyable time with family and friends.
Before we close the books on 2013, let’s celebrate our Post’s successes. In 2013 alone,
Thank you for your tremendous efforts!
Now that the holidays are over, the new calendar year presents a great opportunity for all of us to look ahead and consider ways to improve our personal and professional lives. Whether you make New Year’s resolutions or not, now is a good time to set some new goals. Setting goals is just the first step and it should be followed closely by figuring out how to achieve them. Achieving the goals is not always a simple task. The good news is there’s no need to look very far---your Omaha Post membership provides many opportunities to reach some goals for professional and personal growth and enrichment.
If you want to expand your professional network your Post membership makes it easy. Mark your calendar and plan to attend our monthly luncheons. It’s a great opportunity to establish connections and share ideas with other professional engineers. Another way is to consider volunteering as a Post officer, a committee member, or to help with Industry Day 2014, or our student mentoring program.
If you want to stay on top of emerging trends in the industry attend our monthly luncheons which feature educational programs. You’ll learn about the latest developments in our military, federal and private sector communities of practice.
Are you looking for additional ways to earn required professional development hours? One easy way is to attend our monthly lunches, but did you know you can also earn PDHs by becoming a student mentor for students at our local schools? It’s also a great way to give back to the engineering profession by inspiring students to seek careers in engineering.
We have a wealth of tremendous experience and professionalism among our members and I encourage us to share that broad knowledge base with other members. As we celebrate the New Year, I ask you to consider submitting an article for publication in the Military Engineer (TME) or other professional magazines or journals. Also, don’t keep your SAME membership a secret. Invite your colleagues to one of our monthly membership meetings.
Have a wonderful 2014, and thanks again for all you do!
