One item of note: While a member of one squadron you can have an additional duty assignment from a higher echelon. I'm not sure if that would apply squadron-to-squadron in e-services, but it might be interesting to try so that at least your record reflects your squadron location status.
It does, but the assignment cannot be done electronically, because the "other" CC can't see the member on their roster to select them.

As mentioned, unit of record, and probably the Wing CC of record need to approve of this.

Not be "aware", approve.  Big difference.

In some cases there may be reasons this is not a good idea, in which case the member could ask to transfer,
but might not be invited back.

I have 2 things...
GES
ICUT
wow aren't I amazing, hoping to get more soon though.

I always suggest that new people get the following things cleared quickly:

GES
ICUT
IS100
IS200
IS700
IS800
--
These are all pre-reqs for a lot of different things; by having them out of the way you won't ever have to worry about them again (Until CAP decides on a major refresh of GES and ICUT anyways. That is about once every 15-25 years.)
From there, MSA (Mission Staff Assistant) is a low hanging fruit that gets your foot in the door at a command post, and you can find yourself helping out nearly every position on a mission base. You might be a message runner one minute and a note-taker for the IC the next minute.
MRO (Mission Radio Operator) is another great initial qualification that is critical in a mission base; in many ways, the pulse of the mission can be found by paying attention to the comms room alone.
--
WA state also required IS100/IS700 for emergency workers, so getting the whole stack out of the way now makes for an easier time in the future.

CAP does not do TDY's. However you can participate in another wing's activities.
In your case with the member who spends 4 or 5 months a year in another state, as long as the two wing commanders have no problem with it, you should be good to go.
Their home wing commander should be notified just so they know what's going on and the wing commander of the wing they're visiting should be notified just to make sure they have no objections. They shouldn't but you never know.

I applied to the Honor Guard Academy for this summer, before the deadline and got no response after the slotting. It didn't appear on my "applied" despite actually applying. It was first on my list and have not been put as alternate either...

Members from any wing / unit can be assigned to pretty much any staff role in any other wing or unit or echelon.

Happens all the time.

Isn't necessarily a good idea, but it's not that uncommon.

Unfortunately, while we value History, we also purged a lot of it under Record Retention regs... Had a similar sit in my SQ, but dug in enough drawers to find a few things, and have been around long enough to know how to 'dig' elsewhere... Google, Newspaper archives, mission reports and other rosters, etc. sent to higher echelons...etc.  You may be able to get some CAPF 27 copies from NHQ, but that's about it. Big thing is start a program to document activities and people going forward while you work your way back.

And you may as well get a Duty Assignment to Historian and use the REG 210, Historian self-training docs (223, CAPP 5 & 6) to learn the craft as you go and work toward a Rating in this specialty. It's kind of like being a detective, with all the fun and frustrations of the real thing  :)!  Have fun with it, and just do your best.

While the regs require Annual Histories from WG, Unit histories are "encouraged ... periodically," so the only 'pressure' is you, and the final satisfaction of a job well done. Good Luck! b.

All: After thorough perusal of the Regs, I cannot seem to find the answer to this question. Hope y'all can help! 

SCENARIO:  A member of Wing X spends a number 5 months (summer) in Wing Y's territory. He would like to be able to participate in Wing Y activities and training...but without doing a transfer between his Wing X unit and Wing Y, back-and-forth, every 5-6 months. 

I remember on USAF active duty, we had a thing called "TDY" -- where you could be temporarily assigned to a different unit for a specified period of time. Seems this might be a handy tool for CAP, as some of us aging 'snowbirds' split our time between winter & summer places.

Other than a 2a TRANSFER, does anyone know or have experience, an answer, or a potential route up the chain of command to resolve this question??

THANKS for the favor of any reply!
V/R  CAP10Bob                                    (Brand new to the forum, so please excuse any errors ;) )

You can also check if the old CAP NEWS papers have anything about it. If you provide a time frame (2-3 months) around when your unit was chartered, they may be able to find at least your first commander.

I was able to have them find my Earhart from 1982, which National accepted as proof I earned it and is on my record in Eservices.
