Civil Air Patrol’s Board of Governors convened Nov. 30 in Herndon, Virginia, for the first time since its latest membership change.
Robert Corsi’s term on the BoG – CAP’s governing body -- began Nov. 1. The retired assistant deputy chief of staff for manpower, personnel and services, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C., Corsi succeeded William A. Davidson Jr., whose term ended Oct. 25.
Air Force Lt. Gen. R. Scott Williams became an ex officio member of the BoG when he was named commander of 1st Air Force (Air Forces Northern) and the Continental North American Aerospace Defense Command Region in July. He succeeded Lt. Gen. William H. Etter. Representing Williams at the BoG meeting was his vice commander, Air Force Brig. Gen. Daniel Orcutt.
The BoG voted retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Judith A. Fedder to succeed Davidson as its vice chair. Fedder will become chair Feb. 27, when she will succeed CAP Col. Jayson Altieri, who in turn will become vice chair.
The board also approved CAP’s fiscal year 2018 corporate and appropriated budgets and its legislative agenda for 2017.
The 11-member BoG consists of four Air Force appointees, three members appointed jointly by the secretary of the Air Force and CAP’s national commander, and four members-at-large selected by CAP’s Senior Advisory Group.
The BoG moves CAP forward through collective decision-making to generate strategic policies, plans and programs designed to guide it both today and tomorrow. It is assisted by CAP’s national commander and chief executive officer, the organization’s chief operating officer and the CAP-U.S. Air Force commander, who act as advisers.
