Volunteer AssistanceThe 2016-2020 CPS-ECP Strategic Plan was approved a year ago by the Board of Directors at their meeting in Vancouver, BC. This Plan belongs to all Members of CPS-ECP…. Squadrons, Districts and National. 

There has been great activity in the first year of the plan but there is still a great deal to be done….but it is a five year plan.
