138conferencelogocroplowFolks we are starting to make plans for the 139th NGAUS Conference which is being hosted by the Kentucky National Guard in Louisville, Kentucky. The 139th General Conference & Exhibition will take place September 7-11, 2017 which includes travel days on 7 and 11 September.

At conference, you will learn the way ahead from senior leaders. Discover the latest military and emergency response products, vote on the top legislative priorities for NGAUS, share information and celebrate the camaraderie of being National Guard, NGAGA, and NGAUS members! We will be networking with more than 4,000 fellow National Guard men and women from all 50 States, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia.

Hosted by the Kentucky National Guard.

Louisville is Kentucky's largest city situated on the Ohio River along the Indiana border. Every May, its race course Churchill Downs hosts the Kentucky Derby, a renowned horse race whose long history is explored at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Baseball is celebrated at the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, where Major League bats are produced and a giant baseball "slugger" marks the entrance. Here is a list of some things to do while in Louisville!

Churchill Downs · Louisville Slugger Museum · Kentucky Derby Museum · Belle of Louisville Riverboat · Louisville Zoo · Urban Bourbon Trail · Waverly Hills Sanatorium · Louisville Mega Cavern · Thomas Edison House · Kentucky Kingdom Amusment Park · Muhammad Ali Center · Cave Hill Cemetery
