MEMORANDUM FOR ALL CAP MEMBERS

FROM: CAP/CC

SUBJECT: Nondiscrimination

1. Civil Air Patrol is committed to equality of opportunity in offering access to its educational and

operational programs and activities. Nondiscrimination and diversity are critical to our success as an

organization.

2. CAP provides an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members and ensures that

educational, membership and operational decisions are based on each individual’s abilities and

qualifications. Consistent with this practice and applicable laws, it is CAP policy not to discriminate

in offering access to its programs and activities, or with respect to membership terms and conditions,

on the basis of race, sex, age, color, religion, national origin, or disability. This policy ensures that

only relevant factors are considered and that equitable and consistent standards of conduct and

performance are applied.

3. Commanders at all levels are responsible for ensuring that members under their command are

aware of and adhere to CAP’s nondiscrimination policy.

4. Allegations of violations of the CAP Nondiscrimination Policy will be sent to the Equal

Opportunity Officer (EOO), Lt Col Walter Vertreace. Submission of allegations and/or complaints

directly to the CAP/EOO will not be considered a violation of the chain of command.

a. Those wishing to submit a discrimination complaint should review CAPR 36-2 for

procedures and guidance. Additional guidance may also be obtained by contacting the EOO.

b. The CAP/EOO can be contacted at wvertreace@comcast.net, (267) 971-9442, or by writing
