Strengthening membership to create a stronger voice.
The National Guard Officer Association of Florida (NGOA-FL) and the Enlisted National Guard Association of Florida (ENGAF) reorganized in 1995 under a parent organization — The National Guard Association of Florida. This parent organization is the “umbrella” under which two distinct and separate associations work together for a common goal — improving the quality of life for our Soldiers and Airmen.
The reorganization of the Enlisted and Officers Associations has significantly strengthened our membership and communications. Working together we will ensure that the benefits our Soldiers and Airmen have earned through service to their Nation will not be taken away or lessened.
One of the main reasons for the reorganization is to have a stronger voice in congress and as an Association to help strengthen the Florida National Guard through improved personnel benefits, better equipment, modern facilities and increased relevance. Our organization includes, Officers, Enlisted, Warrant Officers, Retirees and the Florida National Guard Auxiliary of the Army and Air National Guard.
We absolutely need your membership and support so our state and federal legislators will hear our voice.
We have developed a corporate Ring of Honor program to provide our corporate sponsors an additional avenue to support NGA-FL and its members. Participants in this program can join at the gold, silver or bronze level and receive special recognition and privileges. We are excited about this program as it allows us to strengthen our relationship with you.
The National Guard Association of Florida (NGOA-FL) and the Enlisted National Guard Association of Florida (ENGAF) have established a scholarship program to assist members of the Florida National Guard in pursuing advanced educational and academic opportunities.
State Sponsored Life Insurance
In an effort to improve the benefits provided to the members of the Florida National Guard under the State Sponsored Life Insurance (SSLI) payroll authority afforded to the National Guard Association of Florida, our new carrier, Armed Forces Benefit Association and 5-Star Life, offers a program of “no cost” coverage on all members of the Florida Army and Air National Guard.
