CADET ADVISORY COUNCIL (CAC)
Click Here to download CAC Contact Information
The Cadet Advisory Council is defined as
having three main purposes: provide an organization where cadets gain
leadership experience at higher organizational levels, aid the commander
in monitoring and implementing the Cadet Program, and to make
recommendations for improving and running the Cadet Program.
There are two CAP publications which
describe the Cadet Advisory Council. The first is
CAPR 52-16; Cadet Program Management. This regulation is
the foundation to what a CAC can and cannot do and the general rules
associated with a CAC. The other publication is the
CAPP 52-19; Cadet Advisory Council Guide. This pamphlet is
not a mandatory regulation but is more a resource to make CAC function
more efficiently and make easier the accomplishment of a CAC's goal. The
guide was mostly developed by the National Cadet Advisory Council and is
an excellent resource for CAC information.
So what is a CAC? When you break it down to its simplest form, CAC is the united voice of all cadets through representatives to make suggestions and recommendations to build an even better Cadet Program for our members.
