CAP dues for California’s se-nior members changed October 1.Cadet dues remain the same.Did that get your attention?After careful deliberations,the Wing’s Finance Committeedecreased annual dues for seniormembers by a dollar, going from$77 to $76. Here’s the break-down: $35 goes to National Head-quarters (NHQ), $5 is earmarkedfor Pacific Region, and $36 fliesback to California Wing.A little context may be in or-der. Each May, Wing command-ers are asked if they want tochange their Wing’s dues for theupcoming fiscal year, which runsOctober to October. Last yearCAWG raised the Wing portionof senior members dues from $35to $37, which would have mademembership dues $72, or $6 amonth. After CAWG notifiedNHQ of the intended change, theNational Board voted to raise thenational portion of the dues byfive dollars and offered a photoID card for an additional four dol-lars. (As of this writing, the AirForce has not approved the designof the photo ID card, and NHQ isnot accepting applications for this

First, CAWGproportionately redistributes $5 permember to each Group headquar-ters to offset their expenses. Andwhile Wing HQ’s building is rent-free, we still pay a substantialphone bill (averaging $350 amonth), subscribe to a DSL, anddisburse for IT equipment upgradeand maintenance. We also pay over$12,000 annual rent for our com-munications repeater sites. We arefortunate to have a full time admin-istrative assistant, Sue Lundstrom,who acts as the Wing secretary andprocesses all of the CAPF108s so
