CAP Stategic Plan 2016-2018

Call for Member Ideas and Input for the Civil Air Patrol 2016 - 2018 Strategic Plan

Greetings Southeast Region,

Civil Air Patrol is in the process of developing its National 2016-2018 Strategic Plan and every member is invited to submit recommendations and ideas. Yes, we want your input and ideas.

The CAP Strategic Plan embodies our National leadership’s strategy to identify goals for shaping CAP’s future and for establishing ideas for achieving those goals. Ultimately, the strategic plan will be the impetus for moving the organization forward and will determine ways in which CAP will grow and change over the next three years. 

The emphasis is on CAP’s three Congressional missions, the people who conduct those missions, and the resources members rely upon for their success. 

As the name implies, the plan addresses strategic-level actions to be employed uniformly across all of CAP, not simply an individual unit or wing,

It you, as a CAP member, would like to provide input you may do so by  clicking on this link https://www.capnhq.gov/CAP.AppComments.Web/AddComments.aspx.  Comments are limited to 500 characters; bulleted suggestions are recommended. 

Please get involved. This is your opportunity to help shape the future strategic direction of CAP. 

The deadline for comments is 30 April 2015.”

My thanks in advance for your active participation in this initiative.

The Special Relationship - the UK and the USA

Bill Henry welcomed by Tony Cowan
The Special Relationship
Many of us, particularly those who have served in the military, will recognise the ‘special relationship’ that binds our two great countries, the UK and the USA, together.  Particularly as we remember the liberation of Europe and the D-Day landings that took place 70 years ago in Normandy, France. This ‘special relationship’ also extends to the Civil Air Patrol in both countries. One of the UK CAP’s most recent recruits is Bill Henry who is also a member of The US CAP Mississippi Wing.  Bill is resident in the UK this summer and he will now pursue his CAP activities on this side of the ‘pond’.  The attached photograph shows Bill being welcomed on board the UK CAP by the Chairman, Tony Cowan at Aero Expo, one of the UK’s premier aviation events. Further information about the UK CAP may be found at www.ukcivilairpatrol.co.uk
