Why Join or Renew?
Paying your Association dues is the most important form of participation. Financial strength best positions both NGAMA and NGAUS to fight for those issues and resources that impact National Guard members, their families, and our retirees. Here are just a few reasons why 2021 is a great year to be a member of your Association:
- NGAUS/NGAMA simplified dues structure—passed in 2019, the new dues are actually lower than ever for most grades.
- Aggressive Legislative priorities that benefit Soldiers, Airmen, and their families. See the latest legislative agenda here (link TBD once website is live).
- Protection of National Guard interests and benefits during uncertain times.
- Great return on investment—annual membership dues are less than 1% of your yearly drill pay.
While National Guard drill pay has increased an average of about 2% annually for the past 10 years, your Association dues have remained constant. In fact, the latest change in 2019 actually lowered dues for most grades. Based on recent trends, your dues will only become more affordable the longer you serve.
Other Membership Options:
Life membership is a great way to support your organization while never having to pay annual dues. Active Life member dues are a one-time payment of $1250 ($1000 to NGAUS and $250 to NGAMA). You can choose to pay lump sum or in four convenient installments over two (2) years. Current annual members can convert to Active Life membership at any time.
Retired Life Membership
If you’re retiring this year or have already separated from the Massachusetts National Guard, consider purchasing a Retired Life Membership. Dues are a one-time payment of $150 ($125 to NGAUS and $25 to NGAMA).
