Cadet executive officers are the second-in-command to the cadet company commanders, performing duties assigned to them and assuming responsibilities of the cadet company commander in his absence. They are responsible for supervising and coordinating the efforts of the company staff in planning, coordination, and execution of company events, as well as making safety and risk assessments for company events. Additionally, they ensure all company staff goals are met and while remaining knowledgeable of the current status of staff actions.
