SAME Carolinas Regional Conference
About 300 attended the SAME Carolinas Region Symposium held Oct 29 – 31, 2012 at Pinehurst, N.C. Hosted by the Bragg-Pope-Fayetteville Post, the conference theme was Engineering Support for a Changing Force. Bragg-Pope-Fayetteville, N.C.; Cape Fear, N.C.; Carolina Midlands, S.C.; Charleston, S.C.; and Coastal Carolina, N.C. make up the SAME Carolinas Region.
The theme, Engineering Support for a Changing Force, was conceived to meet the demands and challenges of a rapidly changing military environment. The symposium featured 55 exhibitors and four technical tracks.
Hurricane Sandy affected the event forcing two speakers unable to fly to Pinehurst and to hold the sessions via telephone instead. In addition to the exhibits, a silent auction was held to benefit Wounded Warrior projects.
