Membership retention, both senior and cadet, is on the upswing, and we feel this Is indicative of on increase in esprit de corps. Our major deficient at this point is the safety program. We hove a new Wing safety officer and he wi II soon be implementing his program. We hope each unit commander will appoint a safety oFFicer and form a unit safety pion. With increased interest by members in the progrom. we have encountered some problems by actions token out or channels. Although we know they mean well, difficulties OCClJrbecause members don't know the oyerall program. By squadrons sending their questions or comments to groups, answers mey be reodi Iy available. If the group feel correspondence to Wing is in order, such referral is encouraged. Remember, roo, that letters and radio traHic between units S ould corry infoflTlOion copies to group an orea ommands concerned, so hat veryone remains lnformed. If am m r feels he Is r celving insufficient assistance 0 ter rollowlng e proper channels, he mey ¥lri eo leller to the edito 0 Bear Facts. The 1970 California Wing Conference may well be the I st of its kind for o few years. ext year we plan to hold 0 strictly social event. In lis place, we wi II have four or five seminars throughout the yeor and held in various sections of the stote. All Wing storr sections will be represented and everyone wi!' e invited to attend a Full-doy workshop session. We will be colling on the field for more activiti as of all types. All units will soon receive some material on the new Civil Defense/Natural Disaster agreement. Coming soon will also be a schedule for 1971 SAR schools, to help increase our capability in thh. area. Unfortunately, the burden has been falling on only a sm II number of rated emergency services personnel who participate in missions. Those personnel who hold ES cords should remember hot they are accepting a responsibility and must participate in missions. We are concerned about why some units ore r iline to meet rhese obligations, even thou h they have a n mber of rated p nonnel on the ros er. If you are not goil)9 to participate, don', request a cord; it is not 0 status symbol. The Colifomia Wing has accepted he responsibility for nooncing the funerol expenses for Jon romer, who was killed while flying on a search mission. We would like each senior to assess himself ~I and each codet 25~ to help us in this prcject , If we r ceive more thon is needed, we will earmark tf,e surplus 10 be used for 0 simi lor occosion. We hope this never hoppends, hi t we 011 know searching is dangerous. Send your contributions, poyable to Califomio Wing, to my a ttention a th Wing's address. Considerable comment has been mode on the General Aviati n category membership. I is this command's policy that GA members must meet the same training requirements as regular CAP members and they must have on ES cord 0 participate in seor ch missions. For GA members who wish to transfer to regular membership, they must folio", the same procedures as any new member, except that they do nor poy Notional dues; wing and unit dues are still required.
