Event Description:

This course provides expert advice and guidance on leadership, management and ethics in a standardized format for the training of current and potential squadron & group commanders throughout the Civil Air Patrol. Squadron and group commanders are responsible for providing local leadership, administering programs, and managing the volunteer members in the field as they perform the critical missions of the Civil Air Patrol as well as provide support to the United States Air Force as the official Air Force Auxiliary. The UCC discusses the traits and skills new unit and group commanders will need to develop to effectively lead and manage their units. Topics include command responsibility and accountability, recruiting and retention, safety, how to work with families, management, leadership, communication, and elements of successful units and leaders.

This is the new UCC course, which incorporates both on-line and in-residence sessions. Much of the learning/studying is part of the online course. Because of the importance of the online portion, there is a cut-off date for registration to insure that participants have the necessary time to complete all on-line sessions. 

The cutoff date for registration is 15 November 2017.

Event Location:

The in-residence sessions will be held at the Punta Gorda Airport, Airport Authority Conference Room, 7375 Utility Road, Punta Gorda, FL 33982,
from 0730 to 1700.
