RECRUITMENT

Recruitment of new members and retention of members are two functions that require thought and planning. Both are extremely important to CAP's growth and development. Our members’ assets are the talent, expertise, and resources of our Wing, Group and squadrons. Recruiting and retaining the best talent can only improve our value and effectiveness. When you have the opportunity.. tell our story! CAP must have a viable membership structure to meet the obligations related to our service in the Mission for America.

Recruitment Resources

 

 

The nuts and bolts of recruiting and retention has to be at the Squadron/Flight level. This is an on going activity that never stops. Commanders at all levels must emphasize that recruiting and retention are the responsibility of all members of the Civil Air Patrol. CAP membership has to demonstrate to our local communities that they are an important organization that provides service and activities to fulfill various needs. Commanders are encouraged to plan relevant and interesting activities for their unit, ensure that all members have a purpose for belonging to CAP such as having a function in the unit, to train for participation in missions and to grow in CAP through individual professional development opportunities.

 

The Recruiting and Retention program includes activities designed to make the Civil Air Patrol missions and activities attractive to the public and Civil Air Patrol’s current membership. The overall goal is to persuade and ensure that membership in Civil Air Patrol is worthy of the prospective, active, and inactive member’s time and commitment.

 

We must ensure there is adequate:

 

  • ACCESSIBILITY – Are we sharing resources and collaborating within our Group structure to ensure that RR is incorporated with all events?

 

  • BRAND RECOGNITION – Are we aggressively marketing the Civil Air Patrol brand through public events and education?

 

  • COMMUNICATION – Is every squadron communicating to the public and to key constituencies CAP’s congressionally mandated missions of Emergency Services, Aerospace Education and Cadet Programs?

 

  • EDUCATION – Are we striving to maintain training levels to ensure all RROs are equipped with the information necessary to be successful?
