Commercial Real Estate Association Donates $5,000 to Sentinels of Freedom
STATELINE, Nev. – The Northern California Chapter of Society of Industrial and Office Realtors (SIOR) recently held its annual fall event, a dinner meeting, at Edgewood Tahoe. The dinner included a presentation from Mike Conklin of the Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship Foundation, an organization which assists severely wounded and injured post-9/11 veterans in their efforts to become productive and self-sufficient members of their communities as they transition back into civilian life. SIOR Chapter President, Todd Severson, presented Conklin with a $5,000 check to assist in those rehabilitation efforts.
The keynote speaker was Captain George Dom, U.S. Navy Retired, who was an instructor pilot at the Navy Fighter Weapons School (Topgun), commanding officer of a combat FA-18 squadron (Strike-Fighter Squadron 37), flight leader of the U.S. Navy’s Flight Demonstration Squadron (Blue Angels) and commander, Carrier Air Wing Seven aboard the USS Dwight Eisenhower and USS John F. Kennedy.
Dom discussed the importance of bringing “your A game every day,” and how as a Blue Angel, “you can’t afford to have a bad day”. He said the key to extraordinary results is managing energy, not just time, and allowing time to recover from stress.
“Success is an opportunity for growth,” Dom said. “And, your private voice is the most important voice.”
