Christman’s Anderson Tapped as President of NOVA Post of SAME (Society of American Military Engineers)

Ryan Anderson, P.E., LEED AP, a project executive for The Christman Company in its mid-Atlantic offices located in Reston, VA, was named as President of the Northern Virginia (NOVA) Posta of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) where he is serving a one-year term ending in September, 2014. NOVA is the second largest SAME post in the country. 

SAME is a nonprofit professional engineer association, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia. SAME was founded in 1920 to engage military and federal government engineers with those in private life for the purpose of improving the engineering potential of the United States. The Northern Virginia Post is one of about 110 posts located throughout the United States and overseas. Its motto is dedicated in the interest of National Defense. 

The NOVA SAME post was chartered as the Fort Belvoir post in 1948 as SAME's then 43rd local post, and changed its name to Northern Virginia in 2000. The post's core geographical area comprises Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William Counties. Among the organization's programs are charitable activities including supporting the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Ft. Belvoir and awarding scholarships to future engineers. Other community related events that take place annually include participation in Toys for Tots and community clean-up events on Ft. Belvoir and at Walter Reed Medical Center.

A graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point with a B.S. in Environmental Engineering as well as a graduate of the University of Missouri at Rolla with an M.S. in Engineering Management, Anderson leads Christman's Federal Projects group, leading teams in both the public and private sectors and providing the technical expertise required for large and complex construction projects.
