137 Ashbury RCD Army Cadet - Communication information e-mail confirmation/update
CLICK HERE to confirm/update your information
We are presently working on a project to enhance the way that we communicate to the cadets/Parents. The last few years have been challenging finding the right communication platform to put in place and resulted in a lot of frustrations and complaints.
We have decided to try a private software called Instateam (https://www.instateam.net). This application is also used by other Cadet corps in Canada and they have great success with it. We tested it for a few weeks amongst the staff and the support committee members and we have had good results.
We will be testing the new application with Cadets/Parents for the remainder of the cadet calendar year 2018/2019 to see if the application will suit our needs. During this period any constructive comments are more than welcome. Again, the success of this trial will be possible if we can have everyone’s cooperation.
The application is available for different formats (Android, iPhone). The application is also available on PC base software.
We will be arranging a training session in mid February 2019 for those that might be interested. During this period Capt. Bonacci and I (Stephan Bourgie) will be the main contacts if you need support.
The current e-mail contact listing will need to be updated prior the launch of the application.
Please fill the following form to confirm/update your actual e-mail address/phone number.
