Members will have opportunities to hear the latest news from CAP, share in the presentation of annual awards, increase knowledge with seminars designed to answer questions, and be introduced to resources for future reference.


While senior members enjoy informational seminars Saturday morning, cadets will have a special activity before returning to the Conference Center for their seminars.


The Saturday evening banquet presents even more opportunity for networking and catching up with friends across the Region.  After the banquet, there will be a special cadet social with a DJ and more, while senior members and guests may continue to network in the Hospitality Suite!

 

Check-in will begin on Friday night from 1800 until 2100 and from 0700 through 1000 Saturday morning, followed by the opening General Session. 

 

Individual breakout sessions will start immediately after the General Session and cadets will go on the tour. Throughout the day, there will be sessions for the senior members and cadets. The banquet will be held on Saturday evening.

 

This year’s conference is an ideal location for a weekend getaway with the family. While members attend training sessions, family members can enjoy any of the 9 specialty museums, hike the trails, or observe nature at any of the 20 Nature and Park attractions, revisit history at over 20 different historic sites and landmarks.  Explore TripAdvisor and check out the Official Richmond Area Visitor's Guide located at the city's Visitor Website for planning the perfect getaway for family members while you are recharging your CAP batteries!  There is something for every interest!

Special Considerations for Cadet Attendees:

1.  Cadet Tour - We have an exciting and exclusive opportunity for the first 45 cadets to sign up for the conference to attend a workshop at the Science Museum of Virginia to build your own satellite and test it in the virtual wind tunnel!  After the first 45 registrations, you will be placed on a waitlist.

2.  Supervising Senior Member - you will be required to list your supervising senior member or chaperone upon registration.  If a parent will not be onsite, the senior member you list as your SSM will be required to acknowledge and accept that responsibility before your registration will be considered complete.

3. Hotel Accommodations - cadets not rooming with parents will be required to pay for a share of a hotel room.  All rooms have 2 double beds.  Rooming assignments will be made based on cadet biological sex, grade in CAP, and age.  Requests will be accepted for rooming assignments, but we cannot guarantee all requests will be honored.  If you purchase 1 share of a room (per night), you will be sharing a double bed with another cadet.  If you purchase 2 shares (1/2 of a room, per night), you will have a bed to yourself.  There will be no more than 4 cadets sleeping in one room.  Cadets who are not rooming with parents and are staying onsite overnight are required to register through this registration for their hotel room.
