Ready to join CAP as an active adult or youth member?  Here’s how to get started. 


Step 1. Come to a meeting or Contact our Squadron

The best way to learn more about what you can do in CAP is to attend a meeting.  You’ll have a chance to see how meetings are run and what types of activities are available. Squadron 712 meets every Monday night between 1900-2100 (7pm-9pm). Click HERE to see our meeting schedule. You may also contact us to speak with a Squadron leader who can answer your questions and provide you with more information. Please keep in mind that all of our members are volunteers and try to respond to membership inquiries as soon as possible, so please give them a few days to respond. 


Step 2. Attend three meetings

By attending meetings you will become an active participant in the squadron which will help you learn more about what we do and how you can grow within Civil Air Patrol. Our squadron and cadet officers are always available to answer all of your questions and provide you with the best direction possible to help you make a decision.


Step 3. Membership Application Process

Complete the Membership Application. A Squadron 712 officer will be able to provide you with the membership application, but you can also find it HERE. Adult members will also need to complete a FD 258 Fingerprint Card, which will be provided by Squadron 712, and complete their PA Clearances. Submit all of the required documents and membership dues to our administrative officer


When your application is received by Member Services at National Headquarters, it is date stamped and processed in order by the date it arrived.  The new member will receive an automated welcome email once the membership is processed.
