Under the constitution of the Air Training Corps (ATC), each squadron must be overseen by a Civilian Management Committee of no fewer than five persons.
The 1895 Squadron management committee meets approximately once every two months for a couple of hours one evening, usually at the Squadron Building in Cromer. Discussion and subsequent actions are primarily focused around cadet recruitment and fund-raising for the Squadron. However the committee is also there to help the Commanding Officer to help run the Squadrons welfare needs and advise suggestions for local policies for the benefit of the Squadron, staff and cadets.
The main purpose of the committee is to ensure local independent non-RAF control of the Air Training Corps (ATC) Squadron. Much time is devoted to fund-raising for the Squadron which as a part of the Air Training Corps (ATC), itself part of the Air Cadet Organisation (ACO), is a registered charity. However the overwhelming factor is that everything is for the welfare of the Cadets and Squadron, for example, the funds are used in their best interest, the training schedule reflects the best interests of the Air Cadet Organisation and so on.
The committee sometimes gets involved in a range of activities to assist in fund raising and cadet recruitment. Some examples of this have been assistance with parking and bag packing at local supermarkets.
Whilst most Committee members are parents of cadets this is not a requirement and the Squadron would always welcome interest from individuals, organisations and relevant bodies who feel they might be of use in the Committee.
