The 2017 Service Academies Global Summit (“SAGS 2017”) was held in Washington, DC, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center on June 14-16, 2017. The Summit’s theme for 2017 was “Addressing Today’s Challenges and Creating Opportunities Together.” The purpose of the Service Academies Global Summit (SAGS) is to develop, inspire and promote Fellowship, Leadership/Professional Development and Service for the “super-community” of graduates worldwide from the five U.S. Service Academies. This focus takes the following forms:
1) Fellowship – forming new friendships, relationships and opportunities for collaboration and engagement among graduates of the five U.S. Service Academies
2) Leadership/Professional Development – professional development and broadening to prepare us for the challenges and opportunities of today and tomorrow through the exploration of timely, relevant issues and emerging trends from different sectors and in diverse areas (e.g. geopolitics, leadership, business, technology, entrepreneurship, etc.)
3) Service – inspiring ourselves to live the missions of our alma maters throughout our lives, reflect upon how we’re presently doing so, and identify/advocate ways that we can continually contribute to the betterment of society
The Service Academies Global Summit is a historic and seminal global gathering that’s an extraordinary opportunity for learning, interaction, collaboration and exposure to new ideas and opportunities. In short, it is a gathering of proven leaders from around the world from all sectors – government, business, military and NGO/nonprofit – to strengthen shared bonds and help each other become better leaders and members of society. SAGS 2017 will be an enjoyable, motivating, inclusive and relevant gathering of leaders with a robust combination of networking opportunities, actionable learning, thought-provoking discussions and collaboration possibilities. The Summit is a non-profit endeavor organized by graduates of all five U.S. service academies and is open to spouses/partners and guests of attending graduates.
