The Cadet Correspondent Workshop is a new addition to the training year that allows us to engage youth in telling their own stories at the local and regional level. Each corps will have an opportunity to nominate one cadet to become their corps Cadet Correspondent by attending the workshop. A Q&A about Cadet Correspondents, including who should be considered for this opportunity, is included in this package. Cadet Correspondent Workshops will be offered at the same time as many Year 5 workshops. Please note that your cadets can not attend Year 5 and Cadet Correspondent workshops simultaneously. Cadets can be loaded on to the workshop via FORTRESS, with more details coming soon on SharePoint.
If you have any questions about conducting public affairs at your corps, or if you have staff members that would like to be involved in public affairs, please do not hesitate to contact the:
Regional Public Affairs Officer, Capt Cheryl Major, at 250-363-7302 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY CANADIAN RED CROSS
The Canadian Red Cross has introduced the BC Branch to a possible fundraising opportunity for the upcoming training year. This program gives you the ability to utilize the Canadian Red Cross product line of first aid kits for your fundraiser. Currently about 75% of Canadians are not prepared for your basic wound care needs, and this program will now help Canadians be better prepared while at the same time helping your organization raise money.
The fundraising program was launched in October 2018 and the Canadian Red Cross has been working with a number of different groups with extremely successful results. To date, groups have sold $30,000.00 worth of Canadian Red Cross branded first aid kits and was able to produce a gross profit of $12,000.00, that’s a 40% gross profit margin! The Canadian Red Cross also have the ability to support your organization with product sell sheets, and marketing material specifically branded with our organization logo and information to help the fundraiser be as successful as possible.
