leave a comment »


On 11 Apr 15 – the Iowa Wing graduated 5 CAP members (4 from Iowa Wing and 1 member from the Oklahoma Wing) from the Unit Commanders Course in Davenport. Col Anita Elliott and Lt Col Mike McCoy instructed the course.

The Unit Commanders Course provides advice and guidance on leadership, management and ethics in a standardized format for the training of current and potential squadron and group commanders in Civil Air Patrol. Squadron and group commanders are responsible for providing local leadership, administering programs, and managing the volunteer members in the field as they perform the critical missions of the Civil Air Patrol as well as provide support to the United States Air Force as the official Air Force Auxiliary.

The UCC discusses the traits and skills new unit and group commanders will need to develop to effectively lead and manage their units. Topics include command and responsibility and accountability, recruiting, safety, how to work with families, management, leadership, communication, and elements of successful units and leaders.

Congratulations to Lt Col Bill Rubel, Maj Beth Ryan (OKWG), 2d Lt Chris Sessions, 2d Lt Michelle Elliott and 2d Lt Mike Herrera.
