Dear Participants in the 2019 Service Academies Global Summit (SAGS),
Thank you very much for being part of SAGS 2019! Since the Summit concluded, we’ve been receiving a tremendous number of emails, messages and feedback in person about the extraordinary moments experienced by the participants. We’re hearing that it was inspirational, relevant, broadening, developmental, a source of immediately useful take-home-value and, for many, even life-shaping and life-changing. For those of us who helped organize the Summit, this feedback is very humbling and affirming. We are honored to be of service to the super-community of service academy graduates. Thank you for being part of SAGS 2019!

Welcome to the U.S. Service Academies Global Summit
The Service Academies Global Summit (SAGS) is organized by alumni from all five U.S. service academies and is an annual professional refresher and a non-profit endeavor whose purpose it 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
SAGS 2019 is an inclusive and relevant gathering of proven leaders from the business, government, military and NGO/nonprofit sectors who engage in networking opportunities, actionable learning, thought-provoking discussions and collaboration possibilities. Attendees describe it as a transformative experience that strengthens shared bonds and helps its participants to become even better leaders and members of society.
SAGS brings together a community of mutual support and provides an annual professional refresher – a respite from our busy lives wherein we can pause, reflect, recharge and be inspired – as well as a reunion and an opportunity to form friendships with alumni from one’s sister academies. SAGS Summits embody the five trademark qualities of informality, curiosity, fun, respect, and relevant, actionable content. SAGS is organized by volunteers and made possible by our partners, sponsors, speakers and advisors.
