Thanks to Our Sponsors of the Virtual Industry-Government Engagement Event

SAME Atlanta Post hosted its first Virtual Industry-Government Engagement (IGE) Workshop on April 22nd. Each of the three panels were comprised of Subject Matter Experts on the topics that were discussed that included: Task Order Requirement Notifications (TORN), Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC), and Size Standards. The virtual attendees had the opportunity to ask questions during the live discussions and offer their experiences, making government aware of challenges that they have experienced. These important conversations will continue within the SAME organization, so stay tuned to future IGE events hosted by the SAME National Office as well as other Posts. Slide presentation is on the Atlanta Post website at

Beth Harris and Candice Scale, event co-chairs, shared that they were excited by the event turnout and number of firms that sponsored the event. A BIG thank you to all of our speakers, sponsors, and attendees. Special thanks to the Atlanta Post’s Communications Committee for all of your hard work in helping us get the information out in a timely and effective manner.

At the conclusion of the Workshop portion of the event, Pamela Little led the Atlanta Post’s Centennial Celebration event that included toasts, SAME trivia, breakout rooms for networking, and prizes for the lucky trivia winners. A great time was had by all!

A donation of $500 has been made to the SAME Foundation in honor of our speakers at this event. We hope that attendees will continue to enjoy their Centennial Celebration tumblers!
