During the NGAUS annual conference in 2019, the membership approved a change in membership fees.  Following that, in December 2019, INGOA also approved an update to our membership fee structure, both are intended to group ranks of membership, i.e. Company Grade, Field Grade and General Officers in three distinct groups, see below. 

INGOA is pleased to announce our amazing earlybird registration membership incentive for the third year.

For those that register for the annual INGOA conference/Iowa National Guard Recognition Dinner by the end of January, you can receive NGAUS lifetime membership for $750, this is a $250 savings. You can also opt in for a INGOA lifetime membership for $100 (normally $120) and finally for our retirees, you have the option of INGOA retired life membership for $35 (normally $50).

After January, the INGOA board also approved the option of NGAUS life membership for $850 that will last all year. There is not an incentive for INGOA lifetime membership after 28 Feb.

Professionals become members of professional organizations, as officers of the Iowa National Guard, we are all professionals.  Professional organizations such as INGOA and NGAUS’s sole responsibility is to represent you in the state legislature and in the congress.   INGOA and NGAUS is the professional organizations for National Guardsmen.  Not every one can give their time but all officers and warrants can give some of their hard earned dollars to support something bigger than themselvesIf your unit, Squadron, Wing, or otherwise also have membership fees, this will not pay those fees, it will just pay INGOA and/or NGAUS membership fees.

INGOA Retired Life In the past INGOA has had free INGOA retired life membership for all Iowa National Guard Retirees. Starting in CY 2014, to remain a member of INGOA (if you haven’t become an INGOA lifetime member), there will be a $50 INGOA retired life membership fee. This fee can be paid at the links to the left.

Membership is open to all officers and warrant officers in the Air and Army National Guard who have or are now serving in a federally recognized capacity in the Iowa National Guard. All first year officers who were commissioned from ROTC, OCS, AMS or appointed through WOCS will receive a free complimentary membership for the remainder of the calendar year they commissioned and the year after they commissioned, this includes NGAUS as well.
