New Group III CAC Staff Elected

The newest chairman and vice-chairman of the Group III Cadet Advisory Council are members of the Bowie Composite Squadron.

C/Capt. Erich Welch is the new chairman and C/CMSgt. John Brennan will be second in command. Both were elected to their positions by the cadet members of the CAC.

Cadet Welch, Bowie Squadron's executive officer, replaces C/Capt Matthew Herten who moved up to the position of Maryland Wing CAC Chairman. Cadet Brennan is filling the vacancy created with Welch's promotion. The Recorder position remains open. Those interested are encouraged to apply.

Filling Cadet Brennan's shoes as the squadron's representative to CAC is C/2nd Lt. Beau Bustanoby. The new alternate is C/A1C Eric Russell.

Turnout for the elections was very light. Cadets are encouraged to attend and participate in the council's activities. CAC provides a voice for cadets to the wing. The organization is also responsible for planning cadet activities.

The Group III Cadet Advisory council meets monthly at the Annapolis Squadron in Edgewater, Maryland. For more information on the council, email at
