9 FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY 9 As of: 14JAN2014 NGAUS Resolutions “101” What is the Timeline for Resolutions Submission Throughout the spring and summer months, members are encouraged to submit draft resolutions through their state, territory or District of Columbia for consideration during their state conference. Once a draft resolution passes a state conference, it is sent to NGAUS for consideration at the annual NGAUS conference. Review Once the collection of proposed state resolutions is submitted to NGAUS, staff review them and solicit input from three key non-voting stakeholders: the NGAUS Board of Directors, standing NGAUS Task Forces and the National Guard Bureau. Task Force membership is comprised of qualified, National Guard subject matter experts from the six NGAUS geographic areas.

10 FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY 10 As of: 14JAN2014 NGAUS Resolutions “101” Adoption When the NGAUS annual conference convenes, state delegates from each of the 54 states, territories, and the District of Columbia debate and then vote on the draft resolutions. Once adopted, the resolutions then become standing resolutions, and they are published on the NGAUS website and in booklet form. The Legislative Objectives book is distributed to members of Congress, Congressional defense committees, and Department of Defense officials. Throughout the year, the resolutions serve as a guide in the formulation of NGAUS’s legislative agenda.

11 FOR OFFICIAL USE ONLY 11 As of: 14JAN2014 NGAUS Resolutions “101” Why Are Resolutions Important? NGAUS is a member-based organization and input from our members is instrumental in determining what direction this organization takes in the next year. We rely on your member input to tell us what issues are important. Our duty is to support the National Guard community by lobbying the United States Congress. Through face-to-face meetings, letters, s and phone calls, we make sure that your representatives understand the important issues facing the National Guard today. In order to aid in this effort, we need you to tell us what issues are important to you.
