Field Materials Repository
Last modified 20 NOV 16

This is a proof-of-concept of the field-submitted materials repository. The intent is to make available to units in the field successful items units around the country that are proven and work.  This document is not static and will change from time to time as new materials are added to the repository. Some items may open in the Google Docs browser (they are stored in Google Drive) which could cause them to preview oddly. Be sure to download the file and open it in the appropriate application.

If you have an item you feel would be appropriate for nationwide distribution and sharing among recruiting officers & commanders, and meets the branding guidelines created by Civil Air Patrol,  feel free to email it to dninness@cap.gov for inclusion here.  Include your name, rank, unit, and any instructions or comments that would help someone modify and use that item at their own unit.

NOTE: Some of the materials here are older items currently in use in the field and may not meet the current brand guidelines established by Civil Air Patrol. When downloading and using these materials, please consider conforming the piece to the current brand guidelines to ensure commonality of message and visual presentation. New materials will not be accepted for the repository unless they meet the established brand guidelines.
