Serve Your Country as an ESGR Volunteer

Our dedicated volunteers come from all walks of life. We are business executives, civic leaders, and patriotic citizens. Your involvement, with as little as a few hours a month, can improve the employer relations of the brave men and women that place themselves in harm’s way, leave their families and put their careers on hold as they preserve our way of life.

Civilian Employment Information (CEI)

We know that life in the National Guard can get busy. But don’t let that be the reason you don’t submit your Civilian Employer Information to the Department of Defense. Based on the information you submit annually, defense officials will know whom they can call to active duty without putting civilian jobs at risk.
