Wisconsin Wing is seeking a member to assume the duties of Wing Historian. We are entering the 75th anniversary year of our great organization and there is plenty of opportunity for someone to shine in a largely self-directed position.
Prepare annual histories at all levels.
Assemble and maintain copies of CAP historical documentation, to include both written and oral histories.
Prepare historical material for orientation purposes, building esprit de corps, and to support executive decision making with lessons to be learned from past experience.
Provide assistance and advice concerning research; preparing lectures, papers and staff studies; and other activities that require historical knowledge or the use of historical materials.
Develop increased interest in, and an improved understanding of, Civil Air Patrol history.
Maintain objectivity, critical evaluation and a full appreciation of the importance of factual data in the preparation of historical narratives and reports.
**The member selected will stay assigned to their local squadron and will not transfer to Wing**
Qualifications: The ideal candidate would have
Some experience with working with historical items and a drive to expose others to our history.
Member of CAP for at least 5 years.
Completed Corporate Learning Course (CLC).
Be the grade of Captain or higher.
This position is ideal for a detail orientated member seeking an opportunity to excel while working independently in an area with minimal direct guidance. While the qualifications are ideal we are willing to train the right motivated member. We are looking for someone to start job training right away and will slowly assume more responsibilities as training continues.
