In 2021 NGAUS introduced a new lifetime membership option, Digital life! Digital life offers the same lifetime benefits of the normal lifetime membership but has a digital NGAUS magazine vs. the hardcopy magazine. This is a great way to take advantage of life membership at half the price.
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 themselves. If 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.
