I hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend and, what is most important, we took time to remember and honor those who have served and given the ultimate sacrifice for this wonderful country of ours – what an incredible gift they have given all of us!
Also, I wanted to send you all a quick note to let you know how eager and humbled I am to serve as your NGAI President. Sheila and I look forward to meeting all of our NGAI Family and can’t wait to get started working to make this great organization even better for you and your families.
We recently returned from the 2017 NGAI conference and we had a wonderful time with our NGAI family, friends, corporate sponsors and the Governor and First Lady Holcomb! The First Lady, Janet Holcomb, graciously spent three full days with us at French Lick – what an honor! We have already started planning for next year’s event and hope to see you all there!
Over the years, your Association has provided tireless advocacy and resulting benefit to the Soldiers, Airmen and Families in our State and you have my promise that we won’t relent. In fact, just last month, our State’s representatives were battling over the budget and, because of you and your NGAI, we now have benefits that may have been lost without your vital support and voice! Our leverage is our membership, and with that leverage there is metal in our voice and respect in the halls of the State Capitol!
Again, Sheila and I look forward serving and spending time with you and your families. Please let us know what’s on your mind and don’t hesitate to provide ideas on how your Association can better address the needs for you and your family’s readiness.
We hope to see ya soon!
Sincerely and with the utmost appreciation,
L. Kip Clark, President
