NGAUS Conference Update

What does a Town Crier, Crab Cakes and a speech by a Presidential candidate have in common?

An official town crier (Hint: perhaps Francis Scott Key) will greet you, plus mouthwatering Maryland crab cakes (with Old Bay seasoning! J are on the menu, when you arrive at NGAUS 2016.

Plus, you may have a chance to witness history if Presidential candidates confirm that they will address the NGAUS audience.

Feel free to use the attached zip files to spread the word about what to expect when 50 States/4 Territories, representing your National Guard colleague ‘Casey, Sean M BG USARMY (US)’ <sean.m.casey8.mil@mail.mil>s, gather at NGAUS 2016.

Late Breaking news…

Ø The National Guard will be publicly recognized and will participate in pre-game, on field ceremonies at the Ravens/Bills season opener on 9/11, when they unfurl the American flag. The Md National Guard will also conduct another dramatic flyover during the pre-game singing of our National Anthem.

Ø Advance Online Conference Registration continues open for business. Hotel Guest rooms ARE still available at an affordable group discounted rate. Contact: ngaus2016@epponline 410 / 997 0763 410/997 0764 fax

Ø Here is a brand new way to save on conference registration fees… the host State is continuing to process sponsorship applications from industry, for high profile recognition during the Conference. It is NOT too late for industry to be recognized and to support the Guard via a sponsorship!

Refer an industry contact to ngaus2016@epponline.com. If they become a new sponsor, you will receive a complimentary full conference registration.
