Iíve visited units where their meetings arenít posted and I have to go through different contacts to figure it out, let alone know what to wear. Thatís a real pain. Imagine a non-member who doesnít know what or to whom they should ask.

Agreed, but prospects should really not just be randomly wandering into meetings, either.
It's disruptive at a minimum.

Prospects should be making contact in advance with the CC or designate, who can do the
"Round 1 sussin" and then give the details where to go.

(This assumes the meeting isn't in a public ore semi-public area like an FBO.)

Security-wise, I think youíre being general because of where you meet on post. Maybe just state the base but not the building number. Include a statement that visitors require advanced notice for base access.

From a CAP standpoint, thereís really no OPSEC concern in regard to talking about where a CAP meeting meets (on non-military property). The more information you can provide to new facesóspeaking in the most clear, concise, laymenís terms possibleóthe better. If itís complicated or difficult to find/understand, itís a turn off.

The national unit locator shows the details of unit meetings as submitted on the F27, so
it's all public anyway.

Also, since Feb 2018, all units have been required to have a web-based calendar showing all cadet events.
You could argue, I suppose, that this calendar doesn't need to be public, per se, but that's really more trouble then it's worth.

Thanks for the replies. I'm working to craft our open/public information available on our squadron website. Currently, the only option is to submit a Google form and there's no way for the prospective member to follow up on their end, other than to submit the request again.

I was recently contacted via our squadron Facebook page (message) that someone was very interested in visiting the squadron to explore joining, but the Google form failed to work.  I want to have redundant methods for people to visit or contact us, but  some had concerns about advertising the when and where (from a security perspective).  I've been in CAP a few decades and have always made our location/time public; on brochures, websites, Facebook, etc.

Was just wondering if this was a concern anywhere else.

National CAC is actually working on an idea just like this, and will have a position paper for NHQ ready soon!

No complaints here.  Most snow that we have seen in southern Florida this year.

Happy Holidays

Everything in parenthesis includes the actual location. I simplified it for the purpose of posting on a forum. Our actual website literally shows the specific location with the address for that meeting.

If you're referring to the "what's your typical meeting schedule," we don't do that because we have to meet offsite periodically due to sharing our meeting space. The "We meet every week here" was causing issues. So running the event calendar with specific dates and their respective locations was more effective.
