It is an honor and a privilege to have been appointed as Chair of the Ontario Provincial Committee (OPC) Air Cadet League of Canada (ACLC).
Over the last number of years, I have had the pleasure to work with dedicated Chairs, Governors, and staff, not to mention our membership, as together we move the OPC forward. Each of the Chairs have brought their unique styles, and experiences to the position to ensure that OPC is a leader. Their mentorship has meant a lot to me and their continued support is very much appreciated.
I realize that no matter how many projects you would like to see during your term as Chair, you will only be able to accomplish a few. My focus will be on Fundraising, Communications and Training, in addition to continue building on our partnership with the military, and the Air Cadet League Nationally. This can not be done without the support and commitment of our Board of Governors. We are very well positioned with our Board, and the expertise they bring to the table to accomplish these goals.
Our greatest asset is our staff and volunteers, who work tirelessly for our cadets.
We exist to serve the needs of our members in their support of the air cadet program. Often the first question many volunteers ask when becoming involved is “What is expected of me?”
The simple answer is for you to become fully engaged. Individual governors will be Chairing various committees and will be seeking volunteers from our membership for their team members. If you are approached, please consider the request carefully. We are a team with one common goal, enhancing the air cadet program. The added benefit of volunteering for you, is the opportunity to develop your personal skills which may include:
Together, we will move the OPC forward
TO LEARN, TO SERVE, TO ADVANCE.
