Why is Attendance important?
An absence is when a cadet misses a mandatory event (or optional event that the cadet has already committed to) without being excused. In order to be excused a cadet must inform the Squadron of the reason prior to the event. When planning on being absent for an event, a cadet must be excused. Absences and excess excused absences will affect opportunities for promotion, awards, opportunities within the Squadron and summer camp acceptance. Furthermore, excess consecutive absences will result in a cadet’s automatic termination from the Squadron.
