Join Me At The 2017 Service Academies Global Summit in D.C. - June 14-16

Next week, I will be heading to Washington, D.C. I have learned this morning that there are still a few open slots for attendees and sponsors for this event, that will feature top leaders from all branches of our military. I am excited about reuniting with many friends, and meeting new ones. If your schedule has opened up to allow you to attend, I encourage you to register today.

I would like to invite all service academy graduates to consider joining me at the 3rd Annual Service Academies Global Summit - to be held in Washington, D.C. from June 14-16, 2017. Although I am not a service academy graduate, the organizers have invited me to attend as a guest because so much of my work as an executive coach and an executive recruiters centers on working with service academy graduates. I will be moderating a panel on Transition for Military Officers.

See below for all the information you need to decide to put this event on your June calendar.


I    It’s a pleasure to invite you to the 2017 Service Academies Global Summit (“SAGS 2017”), which will be held in Washington, DC, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center on June 14-16, 2017.  

     The purpose of the Service Academies Global Summit (SAGS) is to develop, inspire and promote Fellowship, Leadership/Professional Development and Service or the “super-community” of graduates worldwide from the five U.S. Service Academies.  This focus takes the following forms: 
     Fellowship – forming new friendships, relationships and opportunities for collaboration and engagement among graduates of the five U.S. Service Academies 
    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.)

     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.    Please check the Summit website periodically for the latest updates and information.


    The conference will be held from the 14th to the 16th of June, 2017.
