Calling all COP Recipients — We’re looking for you!

In August 2007, the Board of Directors and membership of the Association approved the creation of a new class of membership–the COP Membership.   This new membership class is in recognition of, and limited to, former CAP Cadets who completed the early CAP Cadet Program and earned its capstone award–the Cadet Certificate of Proficiency (COP).

Over the last 6 months, we’ve developed quite a list of COP holders…but we know there are more of you out there!  If you received, or know of someone who received, the Cadet Certificate of Proficiency, please let us know.

Not sure if we have you on our list yet?  Review the master database here.

Your Association is also looking for a COP Coordinator — someone to serve as “master sleuth” to track down, record, and tell the stories of our COP pioneers.  If you are interested in participating in this effort, contact us.

Always leading,

Mike Hower, #895
National Secretary
