Recruiting & Retention
The Southeast Region (SER) Civil Air Patrol's Recruiting and Retention Directorate focuses on supporting SER Wing Directors of Recruiting & Retention and indirectly all SER Recruiting and Retention Officers (RROs) and Units without an RRO on staff.
Initiatives seek to promote CAP's achievements in accomplishing core missions, share best practices, and encourage continued volunteer service of our valued members. The goal of this SER Directorate is to assist Wings in enhancing the value of CAP membership.
Functional Address: CAP SER/RR
Recruiting and retention in Civil Air Patrol focuses on creating awareness of CAP Missions, educating prospective members, setting realistic expectations, active listening to current members, and proactively helping members achieve their desired goals within the organization.
