Dear Friend,

The reasons for maintaining our military status as the premier fighting force in the world are obvious. The National Guard Association of Arkansas is an organization dedicated to ensuring this status and has a program that promotes this common interest with the business and corporate community.

Our Partners in Patriotism corporate membership program is an initiative that offers a unique opportunity to the corporate community to join us in our commitment to ensuring a strong and free America, by supporting our National Guard members through legislative initiatives, scholarship opportunities, as well as community and corporate interfacing. The attached information sheets explain our membership plan that consists of four levels of participation and membership fees ranging from $1,000 to $10,000 annually. What do we offer in return? Members receive invitations to key National Guard activities, events and social functions to include complimentary reserved seating at our annual General Conference banquet which is a most impressive and memorable event. In addition, our corporate members are entitled to complimentary booth space in our conference exhibits show. The member s business receives publicity on our website and recurring recognition and acknowledgement at every appropriate opportunity. Many of our 1800 members and the 10,000 National Guard soldiers and airmen they represent within the state will without doubt reciprocate by patronizing the members business. All these and many more benefits are described on the information sheets.

We would be delighted for your company to join us in this program and in our dedication to supporting the issues that help our service members, strengthen the National Guard and help maintain the great American democracy. Your direct support and involvement will be of great benefit to our 10,000 soldiers and airmen residing in every community in Arkansas and will fortify our influence on legislative and congressional issues to help the National Guard.

We hope you will seriously consider our program and that you will complete the enclosed membership application and return it to us along with the appropriate membership dues.

We look forward to hearing from you and to the development of a mutually beneficial relationship with your organization. Please contact me at 501 758 6422 or email dcluck@ngaa.org, or our Director of Development, Mrs. Elizabeth Jara at 501 681 4792 or email ejara@ngaa.org if you have questions or comments about our corporate membership program or if we can provide additional information concerning our association.

Sincerely,

Damon Neil Cluck
