The Civil Affairs Association continues to expand its value to its members. This month we established the CAA Professional Publications Advisory Board and a supporting Research Library.

Founded by the late Dr. Kurt E. Mueller, Col., U.S. Army Civil Affairs (Ret.), the Civil Affairs Association Professional Publications Advisory Board comprises scholars and policy and publications experts to assist civil affairs professionals in publishing papers and articles in established professional journals to achieve the following outcomes:

• Promote individual CA officer and NCO professional development and Civil Affairs Regiment intellectual capitalization through the provision of advisory services, research resources, and platforms to that end

• Strengthen and refine strategic narratives to tell the civil affairs story to audiences within and beyond the Regiment who have impact on the development and future of civil affairs

• Mainstream the discussion of civil affairs in larger explorations of national strategy, security, and defense policy and operations, interagency and interorganizational partnering, in addition to joint and service force development.
