-How do cadets with squadrons on base get on base with no military ID?

This is a big problem in places where base restrictions are in place (which is most everywhere). If you have a squadron in mind you should ask them. Here locally they were transported on base from the visitors center by someone with an ID.

Good evening, Cadet.
     Have you researched any of these answers in the regulations? Most of these can be answered by simple searches within the regulations. One thing that jumped out to me, Squadron Commander DO NOT get paid, as NO member of CAP is paid, as we are volunteers. The only people who I believe are paid are some NHQ Staff in Montgomery. Once again, search the regs before you ask questions here.

V/R,
C/Lt Col Capmonkey

Hello,
So I have a lot questions I hope to be answered:
-Are flight officers officers?
-If I transition to a SM with only the Wright Bros. award, what rank would I be?
-Are CAP members considered Airman, [just like Navy is sailor, Army is soldier, etc.]
- Can a cadet member transition to a SM and be a NCO without enlisting?
-How do SM NCOs promote?
-How do Senior Members Promote and how fast?
-What what rank and requirements are required to make your own squadron?
-How do cadets with squadrons on base get on base with no military ID?
-Are squadron Commanders paid?


Thank you, I appreciate your effort to read and/or answer this, and sorry its a lot of questions!

Cadet DeRosa

The information the general public needs is basic.



The more I think about this, I'm probably going to wind up agreeing.  Most of our "outreach" internet wise is FB anyway.

Instead of spending many hours trying to transfer our existing website to the new one, I'll probably take a very minimalistic approach, and just put the most basic of contact information there. And be done with it.

Too many other more pressing matters on the to-do list.

What I would suggest is, when looking at the new website setup, you do a thorough review of your existing site and mark items as "Do I really need this (Y/N)?"

It's amazing on a redesign how much you realize either is missing or blatantly useless/outdated.

The last two Chief of Staff's have been very supportive of CAP. It's kinda nice!

Those are the regs.

Another thing to consider: if the most qualified cadet you have for the role is only a C/SSgt, it's likely your squadron isn't large enough to warrant that position, anyway. 

Not every position that exists needs to be filled in every squadron, and filling positions just for the sake of filling them doesn't improve the program.

The phone number went straight to an answering machine, each time I called without response. This is grouped with the initial post of, "having a hard time getting ahold of anyone via the numbers and email addresses found in the flyers/advertisements".

I've scoured the Internet to find all these numbers and email addresses you guys are posting... That is how I found this place. The chances of someone posting a link I have not already seen, will be low.

At this point, I am looking for someone that actually has a contact. Please, no more links.

Jaz: what state are you in? If you are in Great Lakes Liaison Region (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, or Wisconsin), let me know and I can get you the contacts at CAP-USAF.

We're on the same page.

There is a marketing benefit to advertising that you have a full schedule, but that's also something that helps when it comes to a lack of private access or public photos (i.e., public affairs).

The difficulties I come across---being a unit that does not have a members-only web portal---is that information doesn't always make it from unit > cadet > parent; which, I could do the "it is what it is" method (which I do on occasion). But the easiest method for me, as someone who's performing a half a dozen roles in the unit with twenty times the workload I need, it's just going up on the website. Date, times, location, point of contact for questions.

There's a number of different ways to gain compliance. Really, the only wrong way, is to not make the information electronically accessible via the web.

The RAP program, and CAP-USAF itself, has shrunk considerably in the last several years, and many of the contacts have probably changed.

With that said, PM sent.
