Making CAC Appointments

Overview

The WAWG CP team aims to make the CAC appointment process as easy as possible for commanders throughout the Wing. We run a centralized application process for all cadets applying for all CAC positions available in WAWG. Those applications are open from 1 Jul to 1 Aug each year.

Each echelon will have an appointment window, and the Wing CP team will send each commander a list of their candidates to select from at the beginning of that window. Appointments are made directly in eServices by the echelon listed below.

Dual-Hatting

Unless there are no other options, avoid assigning cadets to serve on two levels of CAC (i.e., a Group CAC Chair should not be a Wing CAC Representative.) The rolling appointment windows will help commanders avoid conflicts, because cadets will be removed from the candidate pool once they're selected.

Elections

Commanders can allow their CAC to elect the next year's CAC officers. Simply forward your CAC the list of candidates you receive from CP, and have them return their election results in time for you to enter the appointments.

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.

eServices

Appointments are made via the Cadet Duty Assignments module in eServices.

When adding your new CAC assignments, do not remove old CAC assignments. These will automatically be retired at the end of the term, so that cadets receive proper credit. The positions that each commander appoints are listed below.
