Cadet Competition Survey
Ladies and gentlemen,
We want to hear from you. The National Cadet Competition committee is working to develop a new model for cadet competition. To determine how best to meet the needs of the cadets we would like to solicit your feedback. We are especially looking for the perspectives of those members who have NOT participated in cadet competition. Why? What is it that has kept you from participating in the past and what can we do to support you participation in the future? Please let us know by completing this short
In five minutes you can give us valuable information about how to move forward. We also ask that you take a moment and forward this to other CAP members- seniors and cadets alike. Help us to reach out and hear the voices from the field.
For those interested in learning more about the proposed NCC changes please check out the Proving Grounds where you can read an "NCC problem statement" that identifies some challenges facing the NCC program, and articulates criteria for possible solutions. You'll also find a first draft curriculum guide, which could govern a redesigned NCC. To keep up to date on changes and to share further feedback, follow the Cadet Blog. Thank you for your time and attention.
