What is the Community Action Information Board?

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. -- Wing leaders continually strive to provide avenues to care for Airmen and their families through a variety of methods, including the Community Action Information Board.

The CAIB is a senior leadership body that provides an important opportunity for wing leadership to come together and discuss a wide variety of individual, family, and community issues including health and mental wellness, spiritual care, stressors, and quality of life concerns. The CAIB operates at three levels: installation, major command, and Headquarters Air Force. At the installation level, the CAIB is chaired by Col. Doug Schiess, the 21st Space Wing commander.

The idea is to use a grass-roots approach to hear concerns with emphasis on positive actions, and programs that strengthen force readiness, and to assist Air Force families with successfully managing the demands of military life, making Peterson AFB the best place in the Air Force to work, live, and visit.

At the wing, the CAIB works hand-in-hand with a multi-agency working group called the Integrated Delivery System. The IDS, the action arm of the CAIB, is comprised of various helping agencies who develop initiatives to present to the CAIB. These agencies include representatives from child and youth programs, resilience, senior spouses, Reserve component representatives, the chaplain’s office, and the medical group. Uniformed members also attend, so they can speak to issues facing their peer group.

Past initiatives include an integrated community approach to suicide prevention, collaborative events such as the monthly community dinners, and Wingman University classes held during Wingman Day.

If you are interested in submitting an idea or initiative to the IDS, please contact Beverly Price, director, Installation Resilience Operations at (719) 556-6768 or email 21sw.caib.ids@us.af.mil for more details.
