NGAUS has filled a key position in the association’s legislative department.

Aubrey Powers is the association’s new legislative analyst.

Powers started last week at the National Guard Memorial, the NGAUS headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Her duties include critical analysis and providing for various legislative activities including bills, hearings and other various support documents.

Powers will additionally provide support to Joint, Army and Air program managers.

Before coming to NGAUS, Powers worked as the voter-protection director for the Maine Democratic Party.

Powers also has five years of experience at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., where she worked directly with industry, government agencies, members of Congress and states to advance shared values between the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

In that role, she assisted North American-wide projects with the Military Health System, the COVID-19 personal protective equipment crisis response and pandemic preparedness.

Powers took the position at NGAUS to advocate on behalf of the Guard and their families in the nation’s capital and because of her mother, a former member of the Iowa National Guard.

"Some people are happy with a nine-to-five job, but I really like having a job that can make an impact on peoples' lives," she said.

"This position will allow me to work every day to ensure the readiness of the Guard, and to make sure our people have what they need," Powers added.

Powers has a bachelor’s degree in economics and a minor in history with an emphasis on Islamic studies from Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio.

She is also a Fulbright Scholar. The educational grant enabled Powers to study and teach in Karabuk, Turkey.

Powers resides in Washington, D.C.
