Why Are Resolutions Important?

NGAT, NGAUS and EANGUS are member-based organizations; input from our members is instrumental in determining what direction we take in the coming years. Your input defines what issues are important. Our duty is to support the National Guard community by lobbying the Texas State Legislature and the United States Congress.

Through face-to-face engagement, letters, emails, and phone calls, we make sure that our representatives understand the important issues facing the National Guard today.

What is a Resolution?

A resolution is a legislative idea that a member or state would like NGAT to work on. If it is a state issue, NGAT will work with the Texas State Legislature. For federal issues, NGAT will work with NGAUS or EANGUS to make our voice heard. As a member-based organization, NGAT, NGAUS and EANGUS solicits proposed resolutions from its membership aimed at enhancing the National Guard, its equipment, capabilities and the quality of life for Soldiers, Airmen and their families.

Resolutions are categorized as Army, Air or Joint. Army and Air resolutions relate to missions or equipment under the purview of the Army and Air National Guard, while Joint resolutions relate to issues involving personnel and benefits, medical, and domestic operations.

Preparing a Draft Resolution
