The AUSA (Association of the United States Army) Convention is held every year and is a great opportunity for cadets to learn everything about what the Army has to offer both on the civilian and military side. During the Convention there are assorted events, seminars, and a vast exhibit hall for the displays of various vendors and sponsors. It is also a great networking opportunity for cadets who are going National Guard or Army Reserve.
Another great opportunity is the ROTC Luncheon that’s held yearly during the Annual Meeting each October. This is free for Cadets and features great guest speakers. AUSA is important to ROTC because it provides tutoring and mentoring programs, Chapter support to cadet programs, Professional Development, opportunities for additional leadership experience, and scholarship opportunities.
AUSA also provides, at no cost to the Institution, Ribbons and History Awards for Annual Awards Ceremonies at Colleges and Universities, when requested. AUSA also provides speakers and presenters at these ceremonies.
