WINGA Conference

The Wisconsin National Guard Association, Inc. (WINGA) is a nonpartisan organization representing over 1,700 current and former Wisconsin Army and Air National Guard officers. WINGA provides its members access to:

2022 Membership Campaign

NGAUS and WINGA are your professional associations who work hard in Madison and Washington DC to get legislation passed to improve benefits, military construction and keep our equipment in pace with the active services. Membership in WINGA and NGAUS demonstrates your professional commitment and provides many leadership development opportunities at our state and national conferences. NGAUS and WINGA fight for you and, as a professional officer, you should support those who support you.

New this year is a Digital Active Life Membership (DALM) option which is half the cost of a traditional life membership. This is a limited time offer, so you must act soon to take advantage of this great savings. DALM offers all of the regular benefits of life membership except the National Guard magazine and Communicator newsletter are sent to you digitally rather than a paper copy. Company Grade offers can become Digital Life members for $330 and Field Grade Officers for $455. Click on the “JOIN/RENEW” link below to make your payment using Venmo, PayPal or a credit/debit card. All dues paid in the remaining months of 2021 will apply to 2022.

WINGA’s goal is to achieve 100% membership in NGAUS for the 42nd consecutive year, an accomplishment not matched by any other state or territory. Membership in NGAUS and WINGA is not mandatory.

Senior Officers are encouraged to sponsor a newly commissioned junior Officer or Warrant Officer. For an affordable fee of $330, you can provide a Digital Active Life Membership to a newly commissioned officer. What a great way to be a role model and encourage young officers to get involved in NGAUS and WINGA. The sponsored officer will appreciate the gift and maybe someday will “Pay-It-Forward” and sponsor a junior officer as well.
