Association Leadership Gathers in Chicago

NGAUS Washington Report

(Jan. 14, 2014) Membership, revenue generation and this year’s NGAUS conference is on the agenda at the National Guard Executive Directors Association annual meeting in Chicago this week.

State and territory National Guard association leaders gather each January at the site of that year’s NGAUS conference to discuss matters of mutual interest. This year’s meeting begins today and ends Thursday.

The meeting will lay the groundwork for state participation at the 136th General Conference & Exhibition set for Aug. 22 to 25.

Attendees will receive a conference update from NGAUS and host-state planners, and tour facilities, including the McCormick Place convention center and the official conference hotels.

The group will also hear retired Gen. Ron Fogleman, a former chief of staff of the Air Force, a well-known supporter of the National Guard.
