Welcome to MER-NC-048, Raleigh-Wake Composite Squadron!
The squadron would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you on your decision to volunteer your time, and talents, in service to your country. You will find that membership in the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) and the Raleigh-Wake Composite Squadron can be a very rewarding adventure. As with anything, the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. You will find that we have fun; however, we take seriously our responsibility to execute our “Missions for America”.
As a new recruit, so to speak, there are several things you must do to become an official member of the Civil Air Patrol. The requirements must be done in the proper order. We will try to outline those steps here.
Please bear in mind that everyone in the Civil Air Patrol is a volunteer. Therefore, time restraints from personal and work responsibilities outside CAP may have a bearing on how fast your membership and leadership development requirements are met. Both you, and the other CAP members you interact with, must remain motivated in order to get all of your requirements done in a timely manner. A simple “please” and “thank you” goes a long way in motivating others to help you.
