NGALA Members,

We are beginning a new year (2018) for membership in the National Guard Association of Louisiana (NGALA) and the National Guard Association of the United States (NGAUS),

Last year we did great and accomplished 104% membership within the Louisiana National Guard.

Your efforts in promoting the association have led NGALA to be recognized as one of the Top 10 states in the nation in membership year after year at the national level.  "Thank You"

NGAUS and NGALA have opened up membership for 2018 and we are now accepting membership dues.

I have enclosed the membership drive memo so the we can inform all of our members (new and old) on how to pay dues.

After careful consideration, we decided to use the NGAUS Website as the host to pay our dues for both the National (NGAUS) and State Chapter (NGALA) Associations again this year.  I have provided the link to the NGAUS Home page with instructions for existing and new members.

If you have any trouble with the site, please contact Me, CPT (R) David Neufeld, or MAJ Will Saint and we can provide assistance as necessary to navigate through this process.

Thank you for all that you do for the association and LANG. Most of all thank you for your leadership.
