5. The CBA Regimental Band:

    a. Band officers consist of a commander, executive officer, and drum Major (optional). Seniors will hold these positions. The exact rank depends on how well senior band members place

    during the officer selection process. Therefore, the rank of the band commander will vary between

    Cadet Major and Cadet Captain. Subordinate cadet officers serving in the band will also be

    considered for rank under the same circumstances.

6. The SAI, when organizing units and selecting cadets for leadership positions, has a training

    objective to provide as many leadership positions as possible in order to offer the maximum

    number of cadets the experience and opportunities of leadership.
