CAPT Bob Bevins, PE USCG
President, Northern Virginia Post

The members of the SAME NoVA Post provide exemplary service to our country and expertly build the architectural/design/construction industry that supports it.  I am excited to continue my association with the SAME NoVA Post, and it’s not hard to understand why so many others think the same.

What counts most is character in choosing who we unite with in business and social activities.  Skill, knowledge, education, enjoyment, process are also key components to successful undertakings, but character trumps them all.  The members of the SAME organization exhibit superb character which is why I align myself with them.  These people are dedicated to their profession, their industry and their country.  They realize that supporting our military makes our country successful and strong.  As companies they can be relied upon to do what they say they will do and focus on customer success.  They also realize that serving those who serve our country is the best way to show them we care.  With a number of ongoing outreach activities to help active duty, veterans and wounded warriors, their hearts are in the right place and they make a difference to those transitioning to civilian life and those who have already served.  Our members also support our communities and help build future members of our industry.  Through K-12 outreach, giving scholarships, mentoring college students, and supporting young members trying to gain experience and credentials, SAME NoVA members give back to the industry that gave so much  to them. This is a great SAME Post with the types of activities and connections that give returns that are many times the investments and make for lasting friendships.

I am honored to be the Post President of the SAME NoVA Post.  I look forward to working with our members and with the Board of Directors to make a positive difference in our industry and our communities.
