The association is looking for applicants to succeed retired Brig. Gen. J. Roy Robinson as NGAUS president when he retires early next year.
The position oversees the daily activities of the association and its subsidiaries — the National Guard Memorial, the National Guard Educational Foundation and the NGAUS Insurance Trust — in Washington, D.C.
The role includes developing and maintaining relationships with a broad range of constituent groups to enhance the association’s image and impact with members, legislative- and executive-branch officials and other key audiences.
The president, who reports directly to the association’s board of directors, is also responsible for NGAUS business operations, particularly growing membership and generating revenue.
Robinson has served as the association's president since March 2017.
NGAUS shared the job announcement and a detailed description of the position with state and territory Guard association presidents and executive directors last week.
The position's salary is commensurate with the selectee's knowledge and experience, based on the contract's provisions.
The full job description is available from Cheryl Young, the association’s director of finance & human resources, at [email protected].
Young is also the point of contact for further information. Her number is (202)-408-5891.
Applicants should email a cover letter, resume, biography and summary of relevant experience by July 5 to [email protected]. They should also specify "NGAUS President Search Committee" in the email's subject line.
The summary of experience should articulate how the applicant’s background and previous positions relate to the required and desirable qualifications for the association's president.
Application packets can additionally be submitted through the mail to:
One Massachusetts Ave., NW
Washington, D.C. 20001
Applicants will be asked to consent to a background check.
They will also be evaluated by a special selection committee of current and former association board members. The committee will be headed by Maj. Gen. Ondra Berry, the NGAUS vice chair-Air.
The successful applicant will be selected and approved by the NGAUS board at its Nov. 18 meeting.
