28 NYWg Priorities? Now, a couple of items from the National Conference and Command Council Meeting recently held in Las Vegas; -On the CAP Website, "Ask the National Commander" is gone. Questions should be first referred to the local level and then upward through the Chain-of-Command. Members can also use the CAP national website on-line knowledgebase. -The National Commander is pushing for all CAP units to become involved in Wreaths Across America. This program is not only a fund raising opportunity for units, but is a wonderful program to honor those who have served, by placing wreaths at the graves of veterans. It has been suggested for units to reach out to and partner with veterans organizations such as VFW and American Legion posts. September 30th is the close of the fiscal year and financial reporting needs to be accomplished IAW CAPR 173 series regulations. Effective 1 September, the Wing Communications Section has rolled a new radio Call Sign Plan. The CAP Strategic Plan has been rolled out and Groups/Units will be receiving information regarding benchmarks and target goals to be attained. During the past couple of weeks, the New York Wing Pilot roster indicated that we have 79 Form 5 current CAP pilots. About 39 of those were Mission Pilots. We must strive to train all of our pilots towards becoming mission rated pilots. We must also make a final push to accomplish Orientation Flights for our cadets. Funded missions for FY14 cease on/about 15 September as the Fiscal Year closes out on the 30th.
