The chain of command is the order of authority. It links the most junior cadet with every leader in CAP, all the way up to the national commander. The Civil Air Patrol organizational structure is modeled on the U.S. Air Force chain of command with the same chain of command concept. This concept provides CAP to use the chain of command as an organizational tool for communicating with its membership.
The chain of command provides the control and communications necessary to accomplish the mission. Each level in the chain is responsible for a lower level and accountable to all higher levels. The chain cannot work without loyalty to every level. With loyalty up and down the chain, it is a highly efficient and effective system for getting things done. The key principle is to resolve problems and seek answers at the lowest possible level. If it becomes necessary for you to continue up the chain, you should, if practicable, request assistance at each level before going to the higher level and advise that you are doing so.
All Squadron and Group members are encouraged to work within the local chain of command. It is important to work with local levels to ensure that concerns are addressed and if necessary appropriately documented and submitted to the next higher level in accordance with regulations and applicable guidelines. By coordinating needs through your squadron, group and wing; concerns may be resolved in accordance with the organizational structure of the Civil Air Patrol. As a bonus, following protocol will ultimately showcase Group II and its membership as a professional operation capable of effective leadership and solid structure. All CAP members should know their chain of command and know that the process is in place to ensure that all members are provided with guidance and opportunity to address any and all concerns.
