Officer Professional Development

NGAUS OPD Programs
The fly-in to Washington, D.C., is one of two officer professional-development programs NGAUS currently offers Army and Air National Guard company-grade officers.

The other is the OPD program at the annual conference. The National Guard Bureau, in recent years, has authorized each state and territory to spend a small amount of federal dollars to send captains and below to the conference for professional development.

This year, the figure is about $300,000 total across all 50 states, Guam, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia. Those selected are on official orders and must attend all business sessions, their service’s separate session and special OPD sessions.

NGB has authorized a similar amount for E-6s and below to attend the conference of the Enlisted Association of the National Guard of the United States. The event is in New Orleans, Aug. 21–24.
