The theme for the 144th General Conference & Exhibition, Aug. 26-29, 2022, in Columbus, Ohio, will be The National Guard: At the Heart of It All. The NGAUS board has decided on the Operational Camouflage Pattern uniform as the attire for business sessions and other meetings and approved the Ohio National Guard Association’s recommendation of sports jerseys — high school, college, pro or Olympic — as the dress for the States Dinner.
