Squadron Sponsoring Committee (SSC)
The Squadron Sponsoring Committee ("SSC" or Parent Committee), is a non-profit charitable organization that is responsible for providing financial support to the Commanding Officer of 604 Moose RCACS. The SSC is made up of parent volunteers that are elected to the Executive Committee (EC) and others that are appointed as directors.
The SSC meets generally monthly where the EC and the Commanding Officer provide information to the membership and are open for questions. Membership in the SSC is free and all parents are welcome to join. As the SSC is operated as a non-profit charitable organization, there is a yearly Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the EC is elected.
The SSC is affiliated with the Air Cadet League of Canada - Alberta Provincial Committee. The Cadet program is made up of a partnership of the Canadian Armed Forces and the Air Cadet League. Each partner is responsible for various funding responsibilities and the SSC is the lowest level of the Air Cadet League organization and is responsible for 604 Squadron only.
