What is the Civilian Committee?
The Civilian Committee is the backbone of the squadron. The Civilian Committee determine the running of the ATC from squadron level through to representation on the Air Defence Council. Each squadron has one, comprised of parents and friends, its role being to assist the squadron’s Commanding Officer, raise funds and ensure the squadron maintains direction.
As you can imagine, fundraising is a very important aspect as it supports many of our activities. Most camps and other adventurous pursuits are financed through this fundraising and it's these efforts which help keep the cost of air cadet membership incredibly low.
Many parents and friends get a great deal of enjoyment and fun out of assisting the squadron as members of the Civilian Committee. Committees meet to their own timetable, usually once-a-month, under the direction of a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. Our squadron Civilian Committees will be very pleased to accept offers of extra help - even if you can't commit to regular or long term assistance.
