CIVILIAN OPERATIONS

     Civilian Operations is the core principle of the Central Aid Agency, it embodies the entirety of our first mission.  The driving force behind Civilian Operations is the C.A.A. belief that faith without works is dead.  To us works must back up faith, and the best way to do that is to get out into our communities and serve.  


     Civilian Operations is made up of Sectors.  Sectors are numbered in order of creation and serve as the geographical nexus for C.A.A. operations in that area.  Sectors are led by a Council-appointed Sector Commander who is often aided by Sector Staff.  The size and structure of the Sector depends greatly on how big it is.  Sectors can be as simple as a group of people meeting in a living room or church, or as big as a designated building with assigned staff.  The size of the Sector depends on it's membership size, service area, and financial resources.



Sector Operations

    Sector Operations are the backbone of Civilian Ops.  Sectors serve as both physical locations, and units where personnel are assigned.  Civilian Ops Sectors hold meetings twice a month, and a community Service Project or Fundraiser at least once a month.  


    Sector Meetings last about an hour and consist of the Sector Agenda and a half hour Bible Study.  Service Projects vary greatly in time and type.  They can last anywhere from a couple of hours, to several days depending on what it is.  Fundraisers are occasionally held in place or in addition to Service Projects.



Structure

     Civilian Operations follows a Tier 3 structure with Type 4 hygiene requirements.  This means that personnel are usually assigned directly to a Sector, follow looser regulations, wear a simple uniform, and focus primarily on community service and outreach.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has"
