NER-MA-019 Beverly Composite Squadron
Main Content



Send us an email and/or message us on our Facebook page. We would welcome the opportunity to talk to you about your particular skills, interests, and desire to volunteer. We will find an opportunity that matches your interests!



Types of Squadrons:

Senior squadrons only have an adult program for senior members 18 years of age and older. Cadets are not accepted into senior squadrons.

Cadet squadrons only have a youth program for cadets. There are senior members in this program, but their purpose is to manage the youth program. Adults join if their primary interest is working with the cadets.

Composite squadrons have both a senior and a cadet program. Essex County Composite Squadron has both senior and cadet programs.

Step 2. Contact the squadron
Call and/or email the unit contact person and confirm the meeting date, time and location. You can also take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about membership eligibility. Keep in mind that the phone number or email posted is often the personal contact information for the CAP member. All of our members are volunteers and try to respond to membership inquiries as soon as possible, so please give them a few days to respond. If you encounter a wrong number or incorrect email address or otherwise have difficulty contacting the local unit, please email us through the Contact page for assistance.

Step 3. Attend a meeting
The best way to learn more about CAP is to attend a meeting. You will have a chance to see how meetings are run and what types of activities are available. You should visit all the squadrons that are convenient to you. Each squadron has a different leadership, culture and volunteer opportunities. Typically you will attend three meetings before completing your membership application.


Cadet Costs
