Recruiting Material

CAP offers electronic resources and limited printed items to help you in your recruiting endeavors.  If you do not see a publication listed here, it is not considered material for primary recruiting.  Please note, that even if a publication is considered a recruiting piece, the office with the authority to distribute the material might not be recruiting and retention.

Please contact the office of primary responsibility for further information.  If you need to find the OPR, have questions, suggestion or feedback, please contact Marie Vogt at mvogt@capnhq.gov or 334-953-9381.

 

How to Order Recruiting Material 

Who Can Order?  All Commanders, Directors and Officers of Recruiting and Retention, Public Affairs and Administration duty positions have permission to order recruiting material through eServices.  Orders are usually processed and shipped out within 24 business hours.  If you need more materials than the maximum quantity allowed on the order page, enter the amount you need.  Orders that are over the maximum and/or are within 60 days of a previous order are reviewed before processing.

2.  Select "Menu" from the top left; then select "Administration"

3.  Under Administration, select "Material Orders"  

4.  Click on the red chevron and "Material Orders" on the top left of the screen.   In the drop down menu that appears, click on "order Request".
