CIVIL AIR PATROL BOARD OF GOVERNORS

Eleven distinguished members make up Civil Air Patrol’s Board of Governors. They are leaders in their own right, drawn from the ranks of CAP volunteers who have careers in a cross-section of America’s workforce along with U.S.Air Force officers and civilians involved in the fields of education, aviation and emergency management.
These board members move the organization forward through collective decision-making, which generates strategic policies, plans and programs designed to guide CAP both today and tomorrow. They are assisted by the national commander, who serves as Civil Air Patrol’s chief executive officer, as well as the organization’s chief operating officer and the CAP-U.S. Air Force commander, who act as advisors.
