The Concord Composite Squadron, Civil Air Patrol’s local unit in Concord, New Hampshire, will host a Membership Information Night on Thursday, January 19th starting promptly at 7pm at the New Hampshire Army National Guard Armory, 1 Minuteman Drive, adjacent to the airport in Concord.

This event is the first opportunity in 2017 for interested youth and adults to find out more about the Civil Air Patrol in the Concord area and how to join.

The Concord Squadron uses a unique “pipelining” approach to new membership & training which brings prospective members into the unit at predesignated times throughout the year to begin new member training. Reservation Map This Winter’s new member period begins at the Membership Info Night on the 19th and closes with “Inprocessing Night” on February 2nd where new member’s applications will be reviewed and forwarded to National Headquarters.

Access to the NH Army National Guard Reservation is via the Minuteman Way Gate off Regional Drive adjacent to Concord Airport.  Please have photo ID available for the sentries at the gate.  Once on the NH ARNG Reservation, proceed to the HQ Armory, which is located at the extreme northern end of the reservation, near Pembroke Road (see the star in the diagram to the right).

If you are interested in joining but cannot visit during the Open House, don’t despair! Contact Lt Col Darin Ninness via email ( or phone (603-340-7062) for other arrangements.
