The New Hampshire Wing Commander, Col. Darin Ninness, invites you to attend the 2020 New Hampshire Wing Conference and Annual Awards Ceremony at the New Hampshire Army National Guard Regional Training Institute in Pembroke on Saturday, March 28th 2020.

Wing Conference is an annual professional development gathering for Civil Air Patrol members.  The conference affords CAP members a broad view of the Civil Air Patrol’s organization and exposes them to the issues and trends facing CAP in our current environment. The goal is to educate attendees and build relationships throughout the wing. Bring your thoughts and ideas, and be prepared to have a great conference!

(Officers: you need to attend two conferences for the completion of Level III in the Professional Development Program.
Conferences attended prior to entry into Level III count toward fulfillment of this requirement!)

There will be several separate sets of breakout sessions throughout the day with 4-5 different options or tracks during each time. Everything from Emergency Services & Operations to Aerospace Education,  Information Technology, Cadet Programs and Public Affairs (more may be added!)  The conference will also host the New Hampshire Wing Change of Command Ceremony at the general assembly in the morning.

Date: Saturday, March 28th 2020
