Reno, Nevada

OVERVIEW The NGAUS General Conference is the Association’s annual business meeting. Army and Air National Guard officers from all 50 states, three territories and the District of Columbia gather to network, set their legislative agenda and hear from America’s civilian and military leaders. Family members, industry representatives and local officials also attend. 

THEME The theme for the conference will be America’s National Guard: A Local Force with Global Reach. The NGAUS board of directors chose it during its March meeting. Maj. Gen. Janson “Durr” Boyles, the board chairman, said that the slogan was fitting as this year marks the 30th anniversary of the founding of the Guard's State Partnership Program.

AGENDA The NGAUS staff is developing the business agenda for the conference. Recent speakers include congressional leaders, cabinet-level secretaries, Army and Air Force secretaries and chiefs, and other senior Pentagon officials.  

Schedule of Events

SOCIAL EVENTS Primary social events include the States Dinner, Hospitality Night and Governor's Farewell*. Other events include golf tournaments, 5K Fun Run, Mt. Rose hike, motorcycle ride, mixers and luncheons. Conference registration is $180.
