The Colorado Wing will host its annual Public Affairs Officer Academy for all COWG and Rocky Mountain Region PAOs, Commanders and Recruitment and Retention Officers on Saturday, Nov 21, 2015 from 0900 to 1700 at the South Metro Fire & Rescue HQ Bldg, Centennial, CO.
The COWG Public Affairs Officer Academy has become known as one of the best in Civil Air Patrol and includes everything a PAO needs to know to successfully perform their role and meet training and unit requirements. Annual PAO training is a requirement of CAPR 190-1, is necessary for advancement in the PAO 201 Specialty Track and essential for SUI success. Recruitment and Retention are important for the Wing and CAP and as Public Affairs works toward recruitment of members, this is the first year that Recruitment and Retention Officers are invited to attend and there will be a special session on the subject.
Complimentary Breakfast, Lunch and Prizes supplied! Speakers are being scheduled and a complete agenda is forthcoming. There is no fee to attend but as always with the COWG PAO Academy, attendees can pre-order a PAO Academy polo shirt when they register. Pre-qualified COWG attendees from distant squadrons will be reimbursed for their travel expenses to ensure as many COWG units as possible are represented.
