Legislative Day

 Florida Wing members with Brigadier General Regina Aye




Legislative Day provides cadets an opportunity to educate elected representatives at the national level about all that CAP does for the nation. The day involves meeting with members of Congress and educate them on the benefits of CAP and what the program has meant to you.  All of the accommodations are paid for and the cadets only expense is food and souvenirs.  Cadets will travel to Washington DC for typically three days. We will be selecting 4 male and 4 female cadets to go on this trip. 


Minimum Eligibility

For Legislative day you must be at least 16 years old, have the Mitchell achievement or higher, and be a member in good standing.
