Mead & Hunt recognized for outstanding contributions to military engineers
Mead & Hunt was recognized by the Society of Military Engineers at the Charleston Post’s 2017 Industry Day. The organization presented our firm with the President’s Silver Medallion award for “Outstanding Contributions to SAME” in addition to a medal for “Outstanding Service to SAME Charleston Post.”
In August, the SAME Charleston Post held its 2017 Industry Day included a number of presentations, but the main event was the Second Annual Issues Workshop. This panel was created to highlight specific deficiencies within the government infrastructure industry and assemble a group of experts to resolve these issues. The first Issues Workshop was hosted by Mead & Hunt’s own Miro Kurka in the SAME Tulsa Post.
This year, the workshop panel presented a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business white paper entitled Government agencies should adopt a common, accurate method of verifying SDVOSB status. The analysis examined the experiences that service-disabled veteran small business owners encounter while applying for SDVOSB verification. According to the panel’s findings, verification practices are inconsistent, which negatively impacts not only the business owners, but also the industry as a whole and, ultimately, government clients.
This Issues Workshop is just the first stop for this white paper. The topic will be revisited by the CEO Roundtable at the next SAME National event. This will take place in conjunction with the SAME Small Business Conference mid-November in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The CEO Roundtable’s findings will be published in a SAME Perspectives paper for peer review.
The Charleston Post 2017 Industry Day was an engaging and informative event. I had the pleasure of serving as the Programs Chair, Post Issues Workshop Chair and master of ceremonies. Not only did I enjoy networking with others in my field, but I witnessed firsthand the Charleston Post members’ dedication to creating a memorable conference.
Receiving the two awards on behalf of Mead & Hunt was, simply put, a privilege. SAME National President Col. Sal Nodjomian (ret.) presented the President’s Silver Medallion, and SAME Regional Vice President Steve Thomas presented the medal for “Outstanding Service to SAME Charleston Post.” I am deeply honored to have received notoriety on behalf of Mead & Hunt and consider it a great privilege to serve and represent our company.
