NGAUS Prepares for 17th Industry Day

NGAUS Washington Report

(Nov. 5, 2013) NGAUS will hold its 17th Annual Industry Day Dec. 10 at the National Guard Memorial in Washington, D.C.

Online registration is now open here.

Glenn Ross, NGAUS deputy director, industry liaison, expects the event to attract more than 250 attendees, ranging from representatives of some the nation’s leading defense industries to the owners of emerging one-product companies.

Industry Day began in 1997 to build a stronger bond between National Guard leaders and industry.

A tentative schedule includes speakers from NGAUS and the National Guard Bureau and a presentation on the NGAUS legislative priorities. A comprehensive overview of Army and Air Guard product and service requirements will be conducted by NGB officials.

A preview of the 136th General Conference & Exhibition in Chicago will be presented.

For the eighth year in a row, a mini-workshop on how to do business with the Guard will take place from 2 to 4 p.m. one day before Industry Day. Workshop registration is encouraged for first-time attendees and is complimentary if you attend Industry Day.

Industry Day admission is $350 for NGAUS corporate associates and $450 for nonmembers by Nov. 15. A $50 late fee will be assessed to those registering after that date. Platinum corporate members receive two complimentary registrations. Gold corporate members receive one.

A continental breakfast will be served prior to the program, and a reception will follow at the end of the day. A mid-day lunch will also be provided.
