Appendix B

Affiliations and Professional Organizations Associated With the Functional Specialties

While CA specialists are assigned based on their civilian background and expertise, they may not necessarily routinely perform the tasks they will perform when deployed. CA specialty teams are expected and must be prepared to accomplish their wartime missions on short notice. They will not have lengthy "train up" periods before deployments. Affiliations with local groups, membership in professional organizations, and subscriptions to professional publications and journals associated with the functional specialty are viable, often overlooked, tools to keep CA specialists current or certified in their operational role.

The following list provides examples of some of the affiliations and professional organizations CA specialists should consider.
