Quote from: RiverAux on July 02, 2007, 03:13:26 PMDoes anyone know of a library that has a complete collection of Civil Air Patrol annual reports? These have been required since we were chartered. I've never seen some of the earlier ones.Scanning in these reports and putting them online would be a great project for a CAP historian. Same goes for Wings that actually publish their own annual reports.

As of 31 Dec 96 Cadets: 19,523 Seniors: 33,350 Total: 52,873 As of 31 Dec 97 Cadets: 23,211 Seniors: 33,478 Total: 56,689 As of 31 Dec 98 Cadets: 25,860 Seniors: 34,508 Total: 60,368 As of 31 Dec 99 Cadets: 26,189 Seniors: 35,027 Total: 61, 216 As of 31 Dec 02 Cadets: 26,937 Seniors: 37,598 Total: 64,535 The reason why I have more statistics than RTCs is because some RTCs list membership numbers for previous years that I didn't snag an RTC. Note: I wonder how much the membership changed due to the middle school initiative. If you subtract those numbers, what are the true numbers. Of course, they still wouldn't be "true numbers" in the sense that just because we have x number of members doesn't mean we have x number of participating members.
