CAP Pamphlet 201 - Specialty Track Guide - Public Affairs has been updated and is available on


Civil Air Patrol has an updated and redesigned CAP Fact Sheet in time for its yearlong celebration of the organization's 75th Anniversary. The 2016 Fact Sheet features CAP's new anniversary logo, and it can be printed on the front and back of a regular sheet of copy paper.


Civil Air Patrol has updated its anniversary planning guide for CAP's 75th Anniversary. Please review the guide, along with the organization's Social Media Guidelines, and begin formulating your 75th Anniversary plans for 2016. (Access special resources for your 75th Anniversary planning by clicking on the PAO Toolkit link at right and scrolling to the bottom of the page.)

The latest tool available is this Region Crisis Communication Plan Template provided by Lt. Col. Al Nash, the Rocky Mountain Region's director of public affairs.

Civil Air Patrol now has a revised CAPabilities ops mission brochure available for use. It is available online in two versions -- high-resolution (printable) or low-resolution (suitable for a quick review).
