Every year, we develop Priorities based on grass-roots input and expertise from our Members: the men, women, and veterans of the National Guard. We take those priorities and work with Congress to enhance National Guard capabilities, equipment parity, and benefits equity.
Congress provides the National Guard with authorizations and funding to carry out its dual mission every year. NGAUS's primary mission to advocate on behalf of our soldiers, airmen, and veterans is reflected in the policies and funding levels approved by Congress and outline here.
Even up close in Washington, DC, the legislative process is ever-changing and shifts on a daily basis. NGAUS on the Hill gives our members a monthly glimpse into the inner-workings on our efforts in advocating for the men and women of the National Guard.
NGAUS is a member-based organization and input from our members forms the basis of the NGAUS legislative agenda. We ensure your representatives understand the important issues facing the National Guard today through your input.
Task Forces are committees of Subject Matter Experts appointed to provide background expertise on NGAUS Priorities, Fact Sheets, and Resolutions, as well as to advise the General Conference on Resolutions. Working closely with NGAUS Legislative Staff, Task Forces are grouped into Army, Air, and Joint-Personnel.
Since 1878, NGAUS has been one of the leading voices advocating for the men and women of the National Guard. The voice of NGAUS and the Guard is strong because of the participation of our Members and because Guardsmen live in every Congressional district in the U.S. This is the history of our success.
