NGAUS Award Nomination Deadline is Tuesday

Nominations for the 2007 NGAUS Individual Awards must arrive at the association’s headquarters postmarked by Tuesday, May 1 to qualify for this year’s program.

Award nominees for the 10 separate individual awards should be people who have demonstrated exceptionally outstanding service, committed acts of heroism or who have contributed significantly to National Guard effectiveness.

Recipients may receive their awards during the business sessions at the 129th NGAUS General Conference and Exhibition, Aug. 25 to 27 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. NGAUS reimburses the $125 conference registration fee to all individual award recipients who attend.

Honorees numbered more than 100 last year and included members of Congress, governors, state legislators, community leaders and Guardsmen.

Most categories require an adjutant general endorsement, but state Guard associations may send their nominations directly to NGAUS.

Nominations should be sent to NGAUS Awards Program, One Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. 20001.

Award information is available in the “About NGAUS” section at NGAUS. Contact Richard Arnold of the NGAUS communications staff for additional questions about the program at (888) 226-4287.
