Become a Support Committee Member
The Support Committee is a vital part of every Cadet Corps across Canada. The committee members are 109's representatives of the Army Cadet League. The committee is made up of volunteers that provide fundraising and financial management as well as conducting recruitment campaigns within the community.
The Support Committee contributes in ways such as developing and overseeing the yearly budget and expenditures, organizing and running Tag Day Weekends, organizing social and fundraising events for 109, providing food for training and activities such as corps dinners, SportsFest, FTXs, and other related cadet activities. There are many other roles that amount to providing further background support to the cadet corps.
This committee is generally made up of parents of past and present cadets but is also open to adult members in good standing of the community at large. We are always looking for new volunteers to share their ideas and time! As committee members do at times interact with the cadets, there is an application process to become a Support Committee member that includes a criminal records check and vulnerable sector screening.
