How to Join Tahoe Truckee CAP
Civil Air Patrol membership offers a lot of great benefits. Not the least is getting to meet some really fine people.
We are a Composite squadrons which means we have both a senior and a cadet program. 
Step 1. Contact the squadron
Call or email the contact person and confirm the meeting date, time and location. You can also take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about membership eligibility. Please keep in mind that the phone number or email posted is often the personal contact information for the CAP member. All of our members are volunteers and try to respond to membership inquiries as soon as possible, so please give them a few days to respond. If you encounter a wrong number or incorrect email address or otherwise have difficulty contacting the local unit, please email us through the Contact page for assistance.
Step 2. Visit a meeting
The best way to learn more about what you can do in CAP is to attend a meeting. You’ll have a chance to see how meetings are run and what types of activities are available. 
Step 3. Membership Application Process
We can provide you with a membership application, fingerprint card (for adults), inform you of the amount of annual dues, and if they require any squadron dues. You can also download the membership application for Senior Members here: SENIOR or for Cadets if you have already visited your chosen cadet squadron apply here: CADET
Annual membership dues vary by state. You can view the membership dues table here.
Make sure you check the dues before sending in your application. Incorrect dues amount will delay the processing of your membership.
NOTE: Applications without the squadrons commander's signature will not be processed.
Step 4. Send Your Application
Send your completed application, fingerprint card (for adult members) and annual dues (made out to Civil Air Patrol) to:
