A Message from our Commander

In celebration of our reopening and 80th anniversary, California Wing is excited to announce the return to our in-person Wing Conference!

Our Wing Conference staff has been working hard to bring you an exciting, interesting and innovative conference where you can engage in great learning experiences, socialize with old friends, and meet new ones.

California Wing has grown, progressed, and succeeded through innovation not only in the technologies and missions that we employ, but also our thought processes and leadership philosophies. Members from around the Wing have enthusiastically engaged in new and exciting initiatives that not only make our program more exciting and rewarding, but are resulting in new core competencies that make us even more valuable to our Communities, State, and Nation.

In this past year our Wing has faced adversity in the way of a global pandemic and statewide wildfires, and even in the face of such disasters our membership stays focused on our missions and continue to serve others both in disaster relief and search and rescue missions.

The theme for the 2021 conference is “Together We Stand”, to commemorate the countless hours our volunteer membership has spent on serving the nation. We have so much to celebrate and learn together at this conference as together we continue to grow, continue to achieve, and continue to exceed expectations in all of our missions.

I invite you to explore the multitude of learning and social opportunities available and I sincerely hope you decide to join us at the Conference.

Your attendance will certainly leave you inspired, as I am, by the heroes that we are honored to serve with on a daily basis, and that you too will inspire others as we move forward in our changing world!
