Air Training Corps Association of New Zealand
The Squadron Officers are responsible for the administration and training delivered in the Squadron. However, each Air Training Corps unit has to have an Air Training Corps Association of New Zealand (ATCANZ) branch associated with it. They are referred to as the ‘Unit Support Committee’.
The ATCANZ Branch is made up primarily of parents from the unit and mostly looks after the unit’s finances, including fundraising to subsidise training. The setting of the annual fees is ATCANZ’s responsibility.
Cadet Forces is quite unique in that the volunteer officers take care of all aspects of the unit’s administration and training. Usually the only parental assistance asked for on occasion is with transport. The other way you can help out is to become an active member of our ATCANZ branch (By default every parent and caregiver is a member of the Unit Support Committee).
Only a small amount of your time is required and the result is a much lighter burden on your wallet, and increased variety and flexibility in the training opportunities offered to the Cadets.
