Management of TISP Transitions to SAME
October 3, 2008

In an effort to support their parallel missions to improve the nation’s homeland security and disaster preparedness, the role of Secretariat for The Infrastructure Security Partnership (TISP), a public-private partnership dedicated to improving the nation’s critical infrastructure resilience, has been transferred from the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME). The decision was made after much discussion amongst the leaders of the three groups, and was approved by the SAME Board of Direction.

As Secretariat, SAME will provide logistical support to the organization; however, TISP will retain its own identity, branding and mission.

Part of moving TISP forward will include initiating a series of quarterly forums addressing issues related to the nation’s infrastructure and featuring panel discussions with a wide variety of leaders.

The first event, Forum on the Security of Water and Wastewater Critical Infrastructure, will take place at the Army and Navy Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, Oct. 29th, 2008. The forum is designed to create networking opportunities for TISP members who are interested in issues facing the water infrastructure sector.
