146th NGAUS General Conference & Exhibition

Your NGA-VT and NGAUS invites you to attend the NGAUS 146th General Conference & Exhibition from August 22-27, 2024, in the “The Motor City,” Detroit, Michigan. This year’s theme is The National Guard: Built to Defend America.

In alignment with the 2024 Presidential election, NGAUS has invited the presumptive Democrat and Republican nominees to speak to our attendees.

Overview: The NGAUS General Conference is your National Association’s annual business meeting. More than 2,000 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. See the very latest equipment for Army and Air forces being exhibited by our many Corporate Partners.

Listen to senior leaders from the Army and Air Force talk about your future, meet your counterparts across our great nation and most importantly learn firsthand what the National Guard Association does for all of us. Recent speakers include congressional leaders, cabinet-level secretaries, Army and Air Force Secretaries and Chiefs, and other senior Pentagon officials.
