Welcome to the National Guard Association of Michigan
The National Guard Association of Michigan (NGAM) exists to advance the interests of the Michigan National Guard. Formed in 1956, NGAM has a 60-year tradition of providing services to its members and support for their families. In 1962, we were incorporated as a 501(c)19 non-profit veterans' organization.
NGAM has committed to being a part of the solution to end Veterans Suicide. The 54 by 24: Service Dogs Save Lives campaign works to sponsor one medical service dog per state by the 2024 Motor City National Conferences. Service dogs play a major part in healing and helping veterans. Suicide rates are drastically reduced when Veterans are matched with a medical service dog, some organizations even eliminate suicide all together.
The 66th Annual NGAM Conference and Business Session is just a few months away. There are some great things happening in your association, come spend the weekend with your Guard family as we direct the future of NGAM. Come spend the weekend with your Guard family with a busy weekend of business, professional development, hospitality, and fun.
The Annual NGAM Legends and Leaders Golf outing is ready to return to Grayling on 15 June 2023. At the newly branded Patriot Golf Course (same course, new owners and new name), we are ready to welcome back all of the legends of the Michigan National Guard as they play along with the Leaders of today and tomorrow.
Columbia Southern University recognizes the effort that NGAM makes in support of its members. NGAM has strived to identify and promote educational opportunities for not only their members but also the spouses and dependents of its members. It is because of what NGAM does for its members and their families, and what the Michigan National Guard does for the nation, CSU would like to offer 2023 Conference attendees a one course scholarship at Columbia Southern University. The one course scholarship covers the tuition associated with any undergraduate course or graduate course (not including doctoral studies).
