RAFFLES/DOOR PRIZES: Throughout the year, PNGAS and the Pennsylvania National Guard Foundation (501(c)(3)) welcome your donations of door prizes, gifts and contributions for the PNGAS Conference, Guard2Guard, and the PNGAS Gifts4GuardKids program.
WE ARE PNGAS, the Pennsylvania National Guard Associations, the only organization exclusively promoting the highest levels of readiness, modernization and quality of life for our 19,438 members and 67,500 veterans of the Pennsylvania National Guard, and their spouses and families, while making sure our men and women have the very-best equipment and resources. Over the next 12-months, the Pennsylvania National Guard must recruit more than 2,300 new members to replace Guard members that have completed their commitments and/or retired. As a direct result, PNGAS legislative, budget and mission priorities reflect the critical need to attract, train and retain quality women and men in the Guard and recognize institutions that help optimize recruitment, retention and procurement strategies of the Pennsylvania National Guard. PNGAS helps members, veterans, and their spouses and families get the benefits they have earned.
As your Executive Director, we have developed a tight, cohesive, professional team; defining needs and focusing PNGAS talent and resources to deliver strong results. Legislatively, PNGAS played a strong supporting role in the enactment of (1) the first-in-nation, Military Family Education Program (MFEP), a new $32,000 tuition benefit for spouses and children of Guard members that re-enlist for a 2nd six-year enlistment, (2) enhancements to the $13.265 Million Education Assistance Program (EAP), a $32,000 tuition benefit for a members first 6-year enlistment, (3) multi-state reciprocity law for professional licenses, (4) pay equity for senior officers, and (5) $1 million funding for the Keystone Youth Challenge Academy. The PNGAS Legislative Agenda is powered by Phantom Lights.
Our strongest recruiting tool, the Educational Assistance Program (EAP) has paid more than $218.9 million in tuition benefits to members of the Pennsylvania National Guard since inception. Very soon, the Military Family Education Program will be our strong retention tool.
Over the past 12-months, PNGAS has launched several excellent initiatives already making positive impacts, including the PNGAS Gifts4GuardKids program, PNGAS Guard-Friendly Schools designation; three Action Councils; and, PNGAS Jobs Board where we hope you consider posting job openings https://pngas.jobboardhq.com/.
Simply put, we want PNGAS to be the best state association in the National Guard!
Through our PNGAS Action Councils, our redesigned PNGAS sponsorship offerings are crafted to build relationships between business, schools and non-profit organizations with the Pennsylvania Army and Air National Guard. These relevant conversations help PNGAS define and execute its legislative priorities, facilitate industry innovations, and help PNGAS grow grassroots coalitions to secure passage of priority legislation and funding. By listening, this year we set a Commonwealth Club record for 12-month $2,500 relationship agreements with PNGAS that detail deliverables for many events, programs, and marketing/branding opportunities throughout the year.
WE ARE PNGAS, delivering proven results and looking forward to working together with Guard-Friendly organizations to advance The Guard and support our members, veterans and their spouses and families.
