WA Wing Cadet Advisory Council
About WAWG CAC
Cadet Advisory Council representatives develop their leadership skills while advising their commanders on ways to improve the cadet program at the group, wing, region, or national level. The CAC is the cadets' opportunity to influence senior CAP leaders, improve cadet life, and increase their leadership effectiveness.
The Washington Wing Cadet Advisory Council serves three primary purposes:
Provides a forum where cadets gain leadership experience at the wing level.
Aid the wing commander in monitoring and implementing the Cadet Program.
Make recommendations to the wing commander for improving and running the Cadet Program.
The Wing CAC meets at least once per quarter, but also work on projects, proposals and in smaller committees between meetings. Meetings are usually in-person, at WAWG Conferences, and via phone or video conference at other times.
In WAWG, each unit is represented directly on the Wing CAC, and there are no group-level CACs. In lieu of group-level CAC's, the Wing CAC has standing committees for each group, and group commanders are encouraged to seek their advice when appropriate.
Suggest a Project, Proposal, or Question
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an idea or question that you'd like the Wing Cadet Advisory Council to consider.
CAC Terms last from 1 October to 30 September every year, and every CAC position opens for applications for every new term.
Because eServices automatically removes all CAC assignments on 30 September, cadets wishing to carry-over their position into the next term must re-apply and be re-appointed.
In Washington Wing, there is a centralized term-change application process for every representative and officer on the WAWG CAC.
The Wing Cadet Programs Team will send every commander their list of candidates to choose from.
Fill a Vacancy
If there's a CAC vacancy that you'd like to fill mid-term, reach out to your unit commander about filling it!
Cadets can be appointed to fill vacancies at any time, and the CAC needs dedicated Cadet leaders like you to help make CAP better.
