Supporting every squadron is a strong committee that is largely made up of the parents and guardians of the squadron's cadets.
The role of the civilian committee is primarily to ensure the squadron fulfils its obligations to provide the core syllabus of training to the cadets. In addition to raising and controlling the squadron funds, it assists the OC and his/her staff in organising additional events and activities to ensure the cadets get the most out of their time in the ATC. The committee also provides an independent link through which parents and guardians of cadets can support the squadron, introduce new ideas and provide feedback.
The civilian committee must have a minimum of five members and includes our OC to ensure that the members are aware of the needs of the squadron and any upcoming events which may require support.
The committee has three specific positions that must be filled:
- The Chairperson - currently an open position
- The Honorary Secretary - currently Mrs J Uppal
- The Honorary Treasurer - currently Mr N Cresswell
The other current members of our committee are:
- Mrs T Fordom
- Mrs H Lupton-Weeks
The committee are always looking to welcome new members and are happy to consider any ideas for activities or fundraising events that will support the cadets. Please feel free to contact the committee with your ideas or for more information.
Contacting our committee
You can contact the civilian committee in one of the following ways:
- Speak to the OC or a member of staff on a parade night
You are also welcome to attend one of the monthly committee meetings to discuss any ideas or questions that you may have. These usually take place on the first Monday of every month, see our calendar for more details.
