Military Service Appreciation Membership Program Announced
October 26, 2011
Acting on a recommendation from the Marketing Advisory Committee, the AACE International Board of Directors has approved a special membership classification to recognize the service of men and women who have served in the military. Effective immediately, individuals who have been honorably discharged from a recognized armed forces branch within the past two years may apply for the Military Service Appreciation Membership Program (MSAMP).
Under the provisions of the program, an individual meeting the MSAMP qualifications may submit an application to become a member along with the appropriate documents confirming service and an honorable discharge to AACE International headquarters and receive
their first membership complimentary. To review the special MSAMP application, click here.
The purpose of the special membership category is to express our collective appreciation for the sacrifices and effort that members of the military make to protect their respective homelands. AACE International also sees the re-entry of military personnel with total cost management skills back into the work force as a way to continue to expand awareness of the value of cost engineering. Current members and stakeholders are encouraged to communicate the availability of this program to recently discharged military personnel who might benefit from the new program.
The Marketing Advisory Committee is co-chaired by Ron Winter and Madhu Pillai. The MSAMP program will replace the Hire a Vet program held in conjunction with the Annual Meeting. However, veterans will be encouraged to take full advantage of all the features of the AACE International Career Center, including posting their resumes and signing up for email notifications when jobs of interest are posted by employers.
