Here is the USAF Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chairman (SEAC’s) 2020 reading list:

A reading list of five books for 2020, and all of them stress different aspects of leadership.

It is an eclectic listing of books going from Attila the Hun to Ernest Shackleton, and from the highest mountains of the world to the halls of power. The one constant is each deal with leadership and has lessons for readers.


•”The Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun,” By Dr. Wess Roberts;

•”Let the Word Go Forth,” By Theodore Sorenson;

•”Military leadership: In Pursuit of Excellence,” By Robert Taylor, William Rosenbach and Eric Rosenbach;

•”Moving Mountains: Lessons on Life and Leadership,” By Reinhold Messner; and,

•”Shackleton’s Way: Leadership Lessons from the Great Antarctic Explorer,” By Margot Morrell and Stephanie Capparell.


The new Safety Program publications are now in effect.  The upcoming National Safety Officer College will be the perfect opportunity to gain a full and detailed understanding of all the components of the new CAP Safety Program, Safety Management System, and commitment to risk management in all we do.

We are planning to use a "blended learning" approach using readings, online lessons and quizzes, discussions, projects, and webinars.  The course work is tentatively slated to begin in August 2020.  There will be much more information as the date grows closer.  Members from all over the country will be able to work together through the on-line portions.  We hope this method will be convenient and meet the training needs of more members.

NOTE:  In accordance with CAPR 160-1, the course will be a requirement for region and wing directors of safety.  It is also a requirement for those members pursuing their Master rating in the Safety Specialty Track.  We are challenging all leaders to take the course to gain a full understanding of the program and its expectations.
