Task Forces


NGAUS Task Forces are special committees appointed by the NGAUS Chairman of the Board and Board of Directors. Task Forces work closely with the NGAUS Legislative staff to provide input on Resolutions and Fact Sheets, and to advise the General Conference Committee on Resolutions. Task Forces members are subject matter experts in their military capacity related to National Guard readiness, modernization, and force structure.
