https://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/CAPR_601__Cadet_Program_Management__36D2A228D5925.pdf

Let's start calling out the changes...

"2.4.1.4. Standard of Training – Unit Level. Because no cadet unit can succeed without adult
leadership, every cadet unit shall have at least two members who have graduated from a TLC course (any
level). Beginning 1 January 2019, TLC graduation credentials must have been earned within the previous
48 months to satisfy this section’s requirement.
Thereafter, members renew their graduation credential
every 48 months by repeating a TLC, completing a higher level TLC, completing TLC Refresher, or serving
as an instructor. Wings are responsible for providing extra mentoring to units that are not in compliance."


"2.10.3. Paint Ball and Simunitions. Cadets may participate in paint ball or simunition-type (force-onforce
marking cartridge) training activities only under the supervision of a law enforcement agency or
military unit
and the HAA guidelines of 2.9. During these activities, cadets must wear protective
equipment to include, at a minimum, head and face protection, plus any additional gear required by the
host agency."


"2.5.3. Alcohol & Recreational Drugs. Cadets will not possess or consume alcohol nor use drugs
prohibited under federal law, even if local law permits their use
. Further, tobacco products and ecigarettes
(vaping) are prohibited for cadets at CAP activities. Seniors will not consume alcohol at activities
conducted primarily for cadets if they can reasonably expect to encounter cadets later that day. Seniors
will not use tobacco products or e-cigarettes in the presence of cadets.
"


"2.6.2.4. Winter Camping. Camping in conditions where the temperature may fall below 30OF may
be conducted only as a high adventure activity (HAA, see 2.9 below) and in accordance with Table 2.3. The
HAA proposal must describe plans for warming cadets, dealing with wet conditions, and evacuation to
indoor facilities."


"2.6.2.5. Uniforms. In cold weather, commanders and activity directors will prioritize protection
from the elements over adherence to CAP uniform standards.
"

So that closes that particular discussion.

"3.1.1. Cadet Recruitment. All cadet and composite squadrons must strive for positive growth, as
measured from year to year. All cadet units must conduct at least one recruiting campaign or open house
each year.
Units that conduct an open house similar to what is suggested in CAPP 60-21, Cadet Great Start,
satisfy this requirement. The group or wing must provide mentoring to leaders whose units are not
showing positive annual growth."


"3.1.2. Cadet and Parent Orientation. Units will provide prospective cadets with a detailed, systematic
orientation that transforms those young people into cadet airmen within 60 days.
A parents’ orientation
is also required. Units using CAPP 60-21 satisfy these requirements."

Looks like the death of the white shirt and black pants.  Mom, get out the credit card.
"3.1.6. Cadet Uniforms. Wear of the uniform is an integral part of cadet life (see 1.6.1). Proper wear of
the uniform is a pre-requisite for cadet promotion (see 5.2.3)."


FCU back to being an "if", not a "when".
"3.1.6.2. Curry Blues Voucher. Cadets may be eligible to receive items for the “blues” uniform
through a voucher program upon their completing Achievement 1, if federal funding is available. For
details, see capmembers.com/CurryBlues."


The days of "show up to promote" appear to be over.
"3.3.1.1. Attendance & Promotion Eligibility. Active participation is a promotion requirement
because direct, in-person involvement in the Cadet Program is the most effective way for cadets to
demonstrate their learning. “Active participation” is not precisely defined because the reason for,
frequency of, and duration of absences varies greatly. It is suggested that commanders consider cadets
“active” if they participated in 4 meetings or activities during the previous 8 weeks.
"


As do the days of "phantom cadets".
"3.3.1.4. Extended Absences. If the cadet will be absent for multiple weeks, the cadet is expected
to file a leave of absence with the unit commander, in writing, indicating the expected date of return.
During a leave of absence, participation in special activities beyond the weekly meeting is at the discretion
of the unit commander."


Same goes for cadets in college.
"3.3.1.5. College Students. Cadets who are college students living away from their home unit may,
with permission of the unit commander, assist their squadron or another CAP unit with special projects
via online activity. Cadets who make such contributions, even without attending weekly meetings during
the academic year, satisfy the active participation promotion requirement."


Attendance tracking now mandatory, including contacting absentee cadets.
3.3.2. Tracking Participation & Contacting Absent Cadets. All cadet and composite squadrons will
maintain participation rosters and monitor their cadet retention rate. When cadets do not attend any
activities within the previous 30 days, the unit commander will ensure that the cadet is contacted. For
cadets who have been chronically absent, it is sufficient to contact them only twice (i.e.: at 30 days and
then at 60 days). An optional Participation Tracker is available in eServices


We all know a CC or staffer who needs to read this section in detail:
"3.4. Progressive Discipline. Commanders will respond to cadet misconduct through a system of
progressive discipline that is positive, incremental, and seeks both accountability and behavioral change
from the cadet. To discipline is to teach self-control and that actions have consequences. CAP prohibits
corporal punishment, including the use of exercise as punishment."

That last line still read pretty unambiguous...

Minimum requirements for cadet staff roles:
"4.1.1. Design Considerations. There is no standard organizational structure for a cadet staff. Each unit
will design a staff structure that is appropriate for its mix of cadets, consistent with the broad principles
set forth in CAPP 60-31. Cadets must meet the grade eligibility requirements shown in Table 4.1 below to
serve in cadet staff positions.
To afford units flexibility, minimum grades for some positions are set lower
than their doctrinally pure levels (e.g., flight commander is an officer position by doctrine, but a C/MSgt
may be assigned.)"

The days of the C/SrA Cadet Commander are over.

Training plans, minimum meeting curriculum, monthly activities, and public calendars are now all required.
See page 21, § 4.3.1. Weekly Squadron Meetings.


There appears to be no reason a unit should maintain >any< hardcopy tests in inventory as they are all,
including milestones, available to print on-demand.

SDA's are changing, including staff appointment for each achievement, a requirement to change the document types
and not repeat them per SDA, and an oral presentation at the end of each one.

The reg Calls out a fairly high number of forms and other regs that don't yet exist or haven't been renumbered.
One major one is the new SDA guide.  I have cadets who are completing an SDA, and should be able to finish
them well before 1 Feb, however, the lack of the new guide being available means that these cadets
will have to hold off on starting their next one, since the timing would mean that they would
probably be about 1/2 done and then have to start over on 1 Feb
.


CPFT will radically change - we all knew it was coming. Best to dig in and maybe start a separate thread dedicated to that.

Wingman is required for Curry (not just any CDI).

CAC rules are clarified, including required grade for certain echelons, and discouraging double-posted cadets,
which has been the norm since CAC's were started in 1846.

"7.2.6. Double-Service Discouraged. Because the CAC exists to provide cadets with advanced
leadership opportunities, the program should operate so as to involve the maximum number of eligible
cadets. Therefore, concurrent appointments to multiple CACs is discouraged. (Example: The wing
chairperson should not concurrently serve as the wing’s representative to the region.
)"


Also makes its purpose clear, none of which include "fixing the senior program" or "planning wing conference activities":
"7.1. Purpose. Cadet Advisory Councils (CAC) will be established at the national, region and wing levels.
Group commanders may establish CACs, with the wing commander’s approval. The three purposes of the
CAC are to:
• Provide a forum where cadets gain leadership experience at higher organizational levels.
• Aid the commander in monitoring and implementing the Cadet Program.
• Make recommendations to the commander for improving and running the Cadet Program."


Requires an "off duty uniform" vs "civilian attire" for activities:
"8.3.1. Off-Duty Attire. When BDUs, ABUs, or blues are not appropriate, such as during fitness
activities, laundry time, downtime, etc., unit commanders and activity directors may designate a
standardized casual “uniform,” such as khakis and a special tee shirt, versus non-standardized civilian
attire of the cadets’ choosing."


And prohibits gender-based UODs
"8.3.2. Gender-Based Directives. Under no circumstances will an activity’s attire rules differ by gender.
(e.g., “Semi-Formal Dress Uniform for males, gowns for females” is impermissible, but “Semi-Formal Dress
Uniform or ‘black tie’ civilian attire” for all cadets is permissible because both genders are given the same
options.)"


Requires explicit permission to participate at other units (that should be fun):
"8.4. Cadet Participation at Other CAP Units’ Activities. Units sometimes open their activities to cadets
from outside units. To participate at an activity hosted by a CAP unit other than their own, cadets must
obtain permission from their parent, home unit commander, and be accepted by the hosting unit.
Commanders will ordinarily approve cadets’ requests to attend these activities, denying requests only for
good cause. If approving a cadet to attend an activity hosted by another wing, the unit commander will
inform the wing DCP."


Wings now required to have an O-ride plan and take the lead in getting cadets flying (about time):
"8.9.1.2. Program Coordination. Each wing will develop an annual, written plan to maximize flying
opportunities for cadets in every unit within the wing. The plan will adhere to a “push” model, whereby
the wing takes the initiative to program flying opportunities for each squadron, versus a “pull” model
where squadrons attempt to obtain aircraft and pilots on their own. Wings may assign this responsibility
to either their CP or DO section."


Surplus CEAP must be returned to the wing for general CP use (that >will< be a lead balloon in some places).
"9.2.7. Cadet Encampment Assistance Program. Special funding may be available to assist
disadvantaged cadets with tuition and uniforms. If an encampment accepts CEAP funds, all surplus
encampment money remaining at the conclusion of the encampment shall remain under wing control and
designated for cadet programs.
See capmembers.com/ceap for program details. "


Cadet required sleep time has been reduced at encampments, though interestingly it doesn't say "required",
it says "afforded the opportunity", which would seem to indicate they can stay up later if they want to:

"9.3.5. Personal Needs. Encampments will provide every participant with three full, balanced meals
daily. Students will be afforded the opportunity for 8.5 hours of uninterrupted sleep nightly, and the 30
minutes preceding lights out will be reserved for personal time. Cadet cadre will have an opportunity for
8.0 hours of uninterrupted sleep. "


Other changes / eliminations:
"Eliminates mention of Drug Demand Reduction as a stand-alone program with its own reporting
requirements, although a drug-free message remains a key aspect of cadet character development
(1.9.4.3)"


"Eliminates mention of squadrons having a dual-charter opportunity with the Boy Scouts of
America; individuals may join other organizations, so the section was unnecessary and created confusion"

The AFMAN is the official reference for D&C, not that pesky CAP one we’ve been trying to get people to use for like a year and a half.

I think the big changes like active cadet fitness program and SDAs are good and these little nitpicks are just that, but knowing how hard it will probably be to correct it (when it could have been put out for this kind of feedback from the field forever ago) is discouraging.

Actually there is speculation that the CAC was the cause of the fall of the Incas because
they were not able to find a Senior-Member coordinator, and there was a multi-year war
regarding where to order pizza.

I have seen cadets go active military, or college, still be on the roster. To me that's dead weight. On paper it looks like high cadet count, 40, when its really only 15 any given week. So what do we do with the dead weight??

So what do we do with the dead weight college students??

Great question!

Start with the guidance in the 60-1:  at a minimum have them participate in special projects online.  They can write up weekly and quarterly schedules, mentor cadets on aerospace and leadership on the phone, draft SOIs and operations plans, draft lesson plans, handle CAC duties, participate occasionally with units at or near the college, and much more.  They can prepare for staff roles for activities at the wing or higher levels (example - preparing for their future job as a flight commander at next summer's encampment) by participating in conference calls and activities when they are home from school for holidays or college breaks.

There is essentially no limit to what motivated but geographically isolated college cadets can do.  The senior member leadership part is identifying possible contributions and working with the remotely located cadet - students.

But I think we agree that they have to do something that is worthwhile and valuable to some part of CAP.

Thank you for working with our cadets.  You are making a difference.

Unfortunately there is little other option then termination for cadets over 18 who choose not to participate.
You can't turn them into Seniors or Patrons without a Form 12, and their numbers do affect the squadrons
ability to achieves things like QCUA, SOM, etc.

At least now there is verbiage from the program which stresses the necessity to be an asset of some or another.
Personally I've never met a cadet or senior member who was legitimately interested in being of some use who
couldn't find a creative way to do so, just as there is no end to the excuses for those who like the idea of CAP,
but not the work.

There used to be a requirement that if a cadet moved out of the area he/she was required to transfer to a new unit, if there was one in the area. I know several cadets who had local units, but didn't transfer and stagnated in grade without ever advancing, despite showing up on the active roster.

In a former squadron, they have 2 at AFA, one in AFROTC, Plus 3 or 4 active duty. Another 3 or 4 in regular college. To my knowledge all are out of the CAP loop. If the squadron knows they are leaving, can they be asked to go Senior before they leave?? all are 18 or 19.

A CC can always ask, but whether or not a cadet, or mom and dad, are interested in the
conversation is another story.

Cadets can "dark-side" for free the first year, but still have to submit a Form 12 and fingerprint card,
complete a BGC

The two you have in the AFA should transfer to the unit there.

The ROTC and regular college would fall into the "you're either here or you're not category" of
participation.

The "3 or 4" on active duty are automatically disqualified from cadet membership and should have
already been terminated.  I have had members in squadrons who were deployed and still
were remote assets to the unit, but on the mean most cadets who have recently joined the
military have enough "real life" on their plate to bother with doing F12's, finding someone to fingerprint them
from Bagram, or even Lackland, etc.  If they cared enough about it, they buttoned things up before they left.

Realistically speaking, unless you're into Phase IV and still aiming at Spaatz, or are an
C/NCO with designs on E3 so want your Mitchell, the ability to progress and promote when you're
away at school are fairly slim.  I know of a few who attended local colleges or "commuter schools"
so they can still come to meetings, even if not as often, that's a different story.

There have been many cadets who have gone off to the AFA/ROTC, etc as Phase IV cadets who have completed the Spaatz between 18 and 21.

Most of this is about having a conversation with your member.

A cadet going off to enlist in the Army? Yeah, get that CAPF 12 before he or she goes, sure. (I just did it to 2-3 of my guys who did that).  "Renew your membership, don't forget!"

A cadet heading off to college? They're still going to be a cadet, and potentially be helpful to you/the unit until they're 21. Do you want to say "Ok, you're off to college, you're dead to me now.."? No.

They're still members, treat them as such and be creative. 

Years ago, I horse-traded with other commanders when I had a cadet in their area for college or they had one in mine. It took a couple different tacks, depending on the cadet, the unit, the kind of time they're going to have, their level of expected participation at each end, transportation options, etc.

  • the cadet transfers to the unit nearby for the duration of their college years, coming back to the home unit for the summer and participating, but for all intents and purposes now a member of the sq local to their college. Including for things like commander permission to participate, etc.
  • cadet transfers to the unit nearby for the school year for testing and promotion purposes, transfers back in the summer.
  • cadet remains a member of the home unit, participates and tests at the local unit, with records, promotions, etc being handled at the home unit thru agreement with the local unit

Only happened a small handful of times (3? 4?) but I know I had one cadet at a unit near his college and when he'd test, take a PT test, or participate in Moral Leadership, the local unit would send us the CAPF23s , test scores, or the ML roster for his records, let us know what he'd been doing, etc. He'd come back for Christmas break, participate with us, we'd review him for promotion based on the work he'd done at the local unit, promote or not promote depending on what was going on, let the local unit know what was what.  It worked out pretty well, actually. Cadet managed to get his Mitchell (he was C/SMSgt or something when he left to go to college anyway.. its not like he was a C/SrA or something).

There are options if you're smart and keep the aims of the program in mind.

Once a cadet becomes an active duty military member they are no longer allowed to be a cadet.  A 2B should have been done on them after giving them a reasonable amount of time to transfer to SM.  In my squadron we try to get them to become an SM when their ship date is 90 days or less.  That way they get the membership card before they ship out.  We try to keep in touch with them but the first year is usually very busy with BMT, school, first assignment, etc.  If we don't hear from them we transfer them to patron status.

https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/index.cfm?cadet_regulation_2018_available_for_preview&show=entry&blogID=1857

Summary.  For a summary of the program enhancements and administrative updates, an online presentation is available as a simple PDF and as a recorded webinar.

Fitness. One of the two biggest program enhancements in the regulation is the introduction of the Active Cadet Fitness Program and a revised Cadet Physical Fitness Test. Squadrons that are eager to switch to the new CPFT may do so immediately, but the transition is not mandatory until 1 February 2018. Online CPFT administration tools will be available at that time, and a large variety of fitness activity plans will as well. 
https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/library/fitness/

Staff Duty Analysis.  The other big program enhancement in the regulation is the introduction of a revised SDA program. During each Achievement in Phases III and IV, cadets will serve in a support staff role, draft one of eight types of technical documents, and deliver an oral briefing using the technical document as a jumping off point. CAPP 60-32, Staff Duty Analysis, is available now. Squadrons that are eager to switch to the new SDA may do so now, or wait until 1 February. Tools for tracking the completion of SDAs in eServices will soon be updated.
https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/cadet_staff_duty_analysis/

Updates to Other Cadet Publications.  As the cadet regulation changes, so too will the library of other cadet-related forms and pamphlets. We will be gradually phasing-in revised publications throughout 2018. For now, the following revised publications are available:

CAPP 60-12, Parents’ Guide to the CAP Cadet Program
Replaces the unnumbered Parents Guide. Adds sections on CEAP and Curry Blues Voucher. Adds content about ABUs. Mentions that CAP is open to youth who have special needs and asks parents to bring those needs to local leaders’ attention. New cadets receive a copy of the Parents’ Guide with their New Cadet Packet. Hardcopies will also be available through Vanguard.
https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/parents/

CAPF 60-90 series, Cadet Leadership Feedback
Replaces the CAPF 50 series. No substantive changes made.
https://www.capmembers.com/cadet_programs/library/leadership-feedback/

CAPVA 60-100, Cadet Super Chart
Updated to reflect the new CPFT and SDA rules. The Super Chart is available online, formatted for printing on two sheets of letter-size paper. We also plan to provide every squadron with a poster-size version in early 2018.
https://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/Super_Chart__2017_letter__combined_17CB4F9432F4D.pdf

CAPVA 60-101, Personal Cadet Tracker
Updated to reflect the new CPFT and SDA rules. The suggested best practice for using this document is for each cadet to print a copy, keep it at home, and manually update it as they progress so they can set goals and stay abreast of what they need to do to earn promotions.
https://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/Personal_Tracker_26E409B4B484D.pdf

DDR & Future of the Cadet Character Program.  One consequence of the new CAPR 60-1 is that the stand-alone regulation on Drug Demand Reduction, CAPR 52-22, is rescinded. A memo explains how that will affect the future of the cadet character development program.
https://www.capmembers.com/media/cms/DDR_Letter_0E7408635DDA9.pdf

CAPR 60-2, Cadet Protection Policy.
Replaces CAPR 52-10. No major substantive changes are planned. The draft regulation is in the final stages of staff coordination. It is hoped that it will be published by year's end with a 1 February 2018 effective date.

Also, and perhaps I missed it but, updates to the TLC materials would also seem in order. I'm conducting a TLC in DEC here in Atlanta and will be augmenting the existing with some slides to summarize the changes for the students.

CAPVA 60-100, Cadet Super Chart
Updated to reflect the new CPFT and SDA rules. The Super Chart is available online, formatted for printing on two sheets of letter-size paper. We also plan to provide every squadron with a poster-size version in early 2018.

Thanks, Eclipse. I did see that. I'm referring to the individual web pages also.

Once a cadet becomes an active duty military member they are no longer allowed to be a cadet. 

A slight qualification.  The regulation uses the term "extended active duty" and makes it clear that cadets undergoing basic training for the Guard or Reserve remain eligible for cadet membership.  Even though the military itself would consider them on a form of active duty, usually "ADT" or Active Duty for Training.  The point is that there are several different flavors of "active duty," not all of which are disqualifying. 

Cadets serving in the Guard and Reserve are normally a "win-win-win" for the cadet, CAP, and Uncle Sam, all of whom benefit from the synergy of the training.
