Sponsoring Committee

Becoming a member of the Sponsoring Committee:

Many parents ask how they can help with the squadron. The best way is to join the 583 Coronation Squadron Sponsoring Committee, which is your direct link to information about squadron activities and how you can participate.

The Sponsoring Committee is comprised of parents of cadets and is the primary sponsoring group for the squadron. Any parent can become a member of the committee by submitting an application form and being approved by the directors. We recommend that all parents become members of the committee.

Each member has one vote and the members elect the Board of Directors once a year. The Board of Directors choose the executive officers by electing a Chairperson and appointing the Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. When a Director resigns, the balance of the Board of Directors will appoint a new temporary Director to fill the vacancy until the next annual general election is held.

To join the Sponsoring Committee  an application needs to be completed and sent to the Sponsoring Committee Chairperson.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact one of the Sponsoring Committee Executive Members.


The 583 Coronation Squadron Sponsoring Committee is responsible for raising funds for the Sponsoring Committee supported aspects of the training program, such as power familiarization flying, weekend exercises, band expenses, entrance fees and transportation for various outings, as well as rent, insurance and operating costs.

 Please check our Squadron Sponsors page for a list of generous donors to our squadron.
