Semper Tek joined the Society of American Military Engineers (S.A.M.E.) in the fall and hasn’t wasted anytime getting involved with the local Kentuckiana post. Semper Tek’s Business Development Manager, Tara Brinkmoeller has been asked to co-chair the Post’s Veterans Outreach Committee.
The Veterans Outreach Committee is relatively new at the S.A.M.E. Kentuckiana Post. The committee is meant to create opportunities for S.A.M.E. members to engage with local Veterans for both goodwill assistance/service and professional development opportunities within the AEC industry. The committee will look to increase its involvement with ongoing Veterans programs in Louisville, as well as engage state officials on programs for VOSB and SDVOSB AEC firms. As a Committee Co-Chair, Tara also serves on the S.A.M.E. Kentuckiana Post Board of Directors.
Tara was eager to help lead this important and extremely relevant committee. Her work for Semper Tek has provided her with some experience in Veteran’s Outreach and Community Service projects. Semper Tek has worked with the Robley Rex VAMC Community Affairs Department for the past four years to provide Christmas for Veteran’s families. They have also supported the department’s efforts for assisting homeless veterans.
Prior to her work with Semper Tek, Tara served as the Vice President for Public Affairs and Communications for the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville. While serving at this membership organization she gained experience leading committees, setting attainable goals for committee work, and working with pubic officials and committee members to accomplish those goals.
