The NGALA is non-profit organization made up of active and retired Army and Air National Guard Officers. NGALA was formed for the purpose of promoting the welfare of National Guard personnel; promoting and supporting national security; fostering and improving the National Guard of Louisiana and the National Guard of the United States as a component of the Armed forces of the United States.
As always, we value your sponsorship. Sponsorship includes registration, exhibit space, attendance at the social and our gala banquet, logo placement on our website, and limited participation in our golf tournament. We also provide you with every possible opportunity to meet and interact with our members and talk about your products and services. We host a cocktail party which gives our sponsors the opportunity to meet and mingle with our leadership team before our banquet. If you prefer, you may purchase exhibit space, or partner as an Individual Guest or Group Guest and visit with our members during conference breaks or during the golf tournament.
