The National Executive Council of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association may designate “Regions” of the Association, the boundaries of which shall be determined by the NEC. Within those Regions, “Groups” shall comprise one or more areas. For example, the Alberta Group of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association includes all of the Wings located in Alberta. A “Wing” may be established upon petition of members for a local branch, and upon approval and recommendation of the appropriate Group.
Each of these components of the Royal Canadian Air Force Association will have its own Executive Council, hold its own Assets and Liabilities, conduct its own business as appropriate to the locality, and make its own Rules and Regulations as long as those are not inconsistent with the overall Bylaws of the Air Force Association of Canada, and having been approved by the National or Group Executive Council.
