12 Jun – Summer Briefing

ANNUAL CEREMONIAL REVIEW – Congratulations to all cadets who made our first live review in 3 years a success! Thank you to all the families who supported us, and to the Sponsoring Committee for their hard work behind the scenes!

BUNTZEN LAKE HIKE – Be sure to come out to our last event of this training year! Sign up is on Teams. It will be on Sat 18 Jun from 0900-1600 hrs. Drop off is at 0840 to beat traffic at the park. BRING YOUR LUNCH – snacks provided. Dress is civvies appropriate for the weather, and good footwear for hiking.

SUMMER STAND-DOWN – With the end of the training year, we will be taking some time to organize for next September. There will be no regular training through the summer months, and the offices will not be open. We will be looking to have a senior NCO meeting and/or workshop the first week in September.

SENIOR NCO SURVEY – We would like all senior NCO’s (FSgt and up) to complete the short survey as mentioned in Teams. This will help us prepare next year’s command group and instructor team, as well as acknowledging anyone taking an early retirement. This link will be open until the end of July for input.

CADET 365 ONBOARDING – All cadets should have received an email with instructions on how to activate their accounts. If you didn’t receive it, email Major Angst at david.angst@cadets.gc.ca

EMAILS – As we are moving to the Cadet 365 system, we will not be monitoring the 754cal@gmail.com account as frequently. Please check the staff directory on the Contact Us page for addresses for specific officers and CIs.

VACCINATION STATUS – While you do not need to be vaccinated to participate in our regular activities, any cadets who wish to participate in overnight activities such as Field Training Exercises will require 2 doses.

REGISTRATION IN SEPTEMBER – Registration for returning cadets is scheduled for Wednesday 14 September, and for new cadets on Wednesday 21 September.
