ORGANIZATION: Civil Air Patrol - Oak Ridge Composite Squadron


The Civil Air Patrol Oak Ridge Composite Squadron is seeking a volunteer to serve the Oak Ridge community as our Recruiting Officer. Oak Ridge Composite serves the local community through three main missions; Cadet Programs, Aerospace Education, and Emergency Services. Because Civil Air Patrol is an all-volunteer and non-profit organization we rely heavily on the volunteer spirit of our members. We need an outgoing and proactive volunteer to create a solid recruiting campaign for membership and our Cadet Program.

A successful Recruiting Officer :

  • Formulates plans and establishes policies, procedures, and programs, designed to assist CAP in attracting new members and retaining current members at the unit level.
  • Plan and conduct periodic membership drives and open houses to attract new members and to stimulate interest in current inactive members.
  • Serve as the content provider for unit web site content pertaining to joining Civil Air Patrol and any other new member information, as well as the unit’s point of contact for recruiting matters and new member inquiries.
  • Make presentations to outside groups, both youth and adult, to attract new members.
  • Stage display booths and provide recruiting coverage at local high schools, shopping centers, air shows, and other public events.
  • Follow up with members periodically during their membership year, and especially 60/90 days before renewal.
  • Initiate direct, personal contact with individuals expressing an interest in CAP by telephone, internet inquiry, etc. and follow up to ensure that all interested persons are fully informed on the CAP program and local unit activities.
  • Informally survey members who chose to not renew for reasons and to identify membership issues.
  • Maintain a close watch on membership and participation trends to identify "at-risk" members before they reach the end of their membership year.
  • Advise their respective commander on guidance from higher headquarters and statistics and trends related to recruiting and retention.

Prior experience as a fundraising coordinator is welcome, but not required. Civil Air Patrol can offer training for those that want to learn and hone new career skills. Applicants must be 21 years of age or older. Wear of a uniform is occasionally required. Membership application fees apply.
