Public Affairs

The mission of the Mid-Atlantic Region public affairs program is to support and embrace Civil Air Patrol’s national objectives through a diverse and aggressive program that encourages, mentors and leads our seven wings to build and maintain a strong relationship with our internal and external audiences.

Regulations, Pamphlets, Useful Publications
CAP public affairs officers (PAOs) are guided by CAP Regulation 190-1 and follow the public affairs specialty track detailed in CAP Pamphlet 201.

Other useful publications from national public affairs include:

Public Affairs Planning

All squadron, wing, and region PAOs are required to create an annual public affairs plan for their area of responsibility.  These plans provide the PAO an opportunity to realistically look at their unit’s strengths and weaknesses, create objectives and goals, and assess how these goals are being met.  CAP NHQ provides a guide for how to write a public affairs public awareness plan.
