Cadet Advisory Council

The cadet advisory council (CAC), according to CAPR 52-16 Chapter 7, has three main purposes:
  1. Provide an organization where cadets gain leadership experience at higher organizational levels. 
  2. Aid the commander in monitoring and implementing the cadet program.
  3. Make recommendations for improving and running the cadet program.
Cadets ranking from NCO and higher are encouraged to volunteer serving a term on the CAC. Composite and cadet squadrons appoint two representatives, one primary and one assistant, to represent their squadron at the wing council. (ref - CAPR 52-16 7-2 a.)

The cadet advisory council term of office aligns with the fiscal year (ref - CAPR 52-16 ICL March 2016). Cadets should be appointed to the CAC by 1 September annually via duty assignment module in eServices. 

Cadets appointed to the CAC serve a 1-year term of office. Commanders may re-appoint a cadet for only one additional term at each echelon. No cadet will serve more than 2 years at an echelon. 

CAPP 52-19, Cadet Advisory Council Guide, provides additional guidance on how the CAC works, including specific duty assignments, processes, and responsibilities.
