The 4th Annual Service Academies Global Summit (SAGS) will be held 13-15 June 2018 in Arlington, VA, at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel. SAGS is a fantastic opportunity for grads to come together to reconnect, build relationships, mentor, and collaborate.  Shared from a member of the planning team:

The summit theme is “Gripping Hands – Unifying Our Communities to Make a Difference Together” and the graduates in attendance will be from a broad range of academy generations and professional backgrounds, with leadership roles in numerous sectors. The Summit is always an inspiring, energizing and special gathering, and its purpose is to develop, inspire, and promote fellowship, leadership, professional development and service for the worldwide “super-community” of Academy graduates from the five U.S. service academies. The Summit is an extraordinary opportunity for learning, interaction, collaboration and exposure to new ideas and opportunities from speakers in exciting locales across the world. 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. Links to the past summits’ videos, programs and photos are on the website.

We’re delighted to announce that Alex Gorsky, West Point ’82 and CEO of Johnson&Johnson, will be the kickoff speaker on Wednesday, June 13. Please check out our website for latest speakers from all five service academies and latest agenda. We are expecting all five Academy Superintendents to attend this year, a unique part of this summit, which boasts a flavorful and interesting menu of events, speakers, and activities that foster growth, reflection and meaningful connection. We’d love for you to join us and please see attached flyer for highlights on select speakers.

Hope to see you there!
