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.

Join NGAM for our Industry Day 2022 as we join the Michigan National Guard Leadership Conference and as we celebrate with the MVAA for the Michigan Military and Veterans Gala.  It will be a full weekend of celebrating the best of our citizen Soldiers, Airmen, families, and Veterans that call Michigan home.
