The SAME Tampa Bay Post hosts a plethora of events throughout the year, offering multiple opportunities to network, fundraise, and educate the SAME membership.
Held each February, the Tampa Bay Post's Joint Training and Education Day (JTED) is a combined Small Business Forum and Industry Day. Comprised of three panels, the educational session topics include a Federal Small Business panel and two related to hot topics in the A/E/C world. PDH credits are available for all three sessions. The event also includes a networking "Icebreaker" event the evening prior.
Each spring, our Post gathers participants from MacDill AFB, including CENTCOM and SOCOM, and SAME posts around the region and more to play in a daylong golf tournament, benefitting our college scholarship fund. To date, the post has awarded more than $200,000 in scholarship awards.
