2011 Region Cadet Leadership School (RCLS)

This announcement pertains to the 2011 RCLS North, to be held at the New Hampshire State Fire Academy in Concord. The activity will run from the 26th of December to the 1st of January (2012). RCLS (or COS) is a requirement for the Eaker award just as encampment is a requirement for the Mitchell, so I would suggest attending if possible.

If you are interested in applying you will need to submit the following items as soon as you can, because there is a cap on the number of attendees.

  • CAPF 31 -Submit to MEWG Headquarters. Since it is an out of state activity, the wing commander must sign it, in addition to your Squadron commander.
  • CAPF 60
  • Fee (check or money order) – $75.00 ($35.00 due with application)
  • A resume detailing your CAP, school, and community involvement – Submit with your CAPF 31
  • A letter of recommendation from a person that can speak to your leadership potential, work ethic, scholarship, and moral character.

You MUST also be at least a cadet master sergeant and have attended a basic encampment.

The application deadline is the 26th of October 2011. More information is available at the website below, if you can’t find the answers you seek there, feel free to contact me through your squadron commander (or ask below in the comments section).
