CAC Term-Change Process for Commanders


Term-Change Applications for all CAC positions in WAWG are open on 1 August and close 31 August.

Cadets serve on Cadet Advisory Councils on a term-by-term basis, so every year on 30 September, every CAC Assignment* expires automatically in eServices. The new term begins on 1 October.

This means that commanders at every level in CAP need to enter CAC assignments before every new term starts, even for cadets who will be carrying the same job into the next term.

The WAWG Cadet Programs Team manages a centralized application process for all CAC positions that are hired within the wing, to give cadets across the wing an even experience, and reduce admin overhead for commanders.

Wing CP team will send each commander a list of their candidates at the beginning of the selection window shown below. The cascading selection windows prevent the accidental dual-hatting of cadets, by screening applicants who have already been selected for other CAC positions.

  *Assignments made after 1 August don't expire until 30 September of the next year, to allow entry of the next-term's assignments before it begins.

Overall Process

eServices Notes


Unless there are no other options, avoid assigning cadets to more than one position. This ensures every position gets full focus, and that there are more opportunities for cadets. You'll be able to see who from your unit already has a position in the "Already Selected for Position Next Term" column:

Filling Vacancies

Some positions may still be open at the beginning of the CAC term (1 Oct), or some may come open during the CAC term. The wing-wide applications are only open during the annual term-change process. Outside of that window, commanders are able (and encouraged) seek and hire applicants for vacant positions, but will have to do so directly themselves.

Be aware that if you fill a current-term CAC vacancy between 1 August and 30 September, it will carry into the next term automatically, unless manually removed at the end of the current term.

Term Limits

Cadets can only serve a total of 36 months at any one echelon of CAC. It's pretty uncommon for cadets to serve this long at one echelon, and we capture previous service in the application process for you.

Commander's Prerogative

This process isn't meant to limit a commander's prerogative for appointing cadets to CAC. While we strongly encourage commanders to select cadets from the applicant list we send them inside their windows, commanders have the authority to appoint any cadet they see fit at any time. Additionally, commanders have the authority to fill, remove, and replace any of these assignments at any time, and are able to use an election process to fill vacancies.
