Corporate Learning Course
Sep
28
to Sep 29

Corporate Learning Course

Exact times TBD. Here is the email from Lt Col Bob Dulinawaka, NV Wing Professional Development Director:

Nevada Wing is conducting a Corporate Learning Course this weekend in Las Vegas, and I've gotten feedback that resulted in setting up a CLC on 28-29 Sep at Wing Hq. The Course Director is Maj Pat McDonough, patrick.mcdonough@nvwg.cap.gov, 530-400-2565.

 

CLC student candidates -- this local, Professional Development growth opportunity will further your knowledge, continue your Professional Development progression, and increase your capability to produce success in your squadron and the Nevada Wing. Talk to your squadron folks -- those who have been to CLC. I know you'll find it rewarding and fun.

 

Squadron Commanders, Professional Development Officers, and Wing Staff -- your commitment to mentor and recruit these squadron members, and your personal participation as CLC staff members, is very important for the ongoing success of our squadrons and their capability to perform our CAP missions. 

 

All-- contact Maj McDonough to sign up as a CLC student, or to help as staff or instructor (12 instruction blocks - all course materials provided).

 

I imagine that you'll feel rewarded, and be glad you committed your time, talents, and effort to make our Civil Air Patrol team more capable. 

 

Bob
