Cadet Advisory Council (CAC)



Cadet Advisory Councils have three main purposes:

1.      To provide an organization where cadets gain leadership experience at higher organizational levels;

2.      Aid the commanders in monitoring and implementing the Cadet Program;

3.      Make recommendations for improving and running the Cadet Program.

Comprised of North Carolina Wing cadets, the North Carolina Wing CAC advises NCWG/HQ, the North Carolina Wing Cadet Programs Directorate, and the Wing Commander on cadet-related matters.
