I am currently the Cadet Commander of a Squadron and wish to host a small ALS including my squadron and any surrounding squadrons that wish to attend. Who do I need to contact to get my event make/approved so that attendees can have the chord, certificate of completion and documentation that they completed the activity. Would I contact the my Group Commander?

My guess would be your Wing Cadet Program folks.

Talk to your squadron commander first, as he/she will have to be the one to make initial contact with higher HQ to get approval for your activity.  Your commander may delegate planning and running the activity to you, but he/she will be responsible for it as far as higher HQ is concerned.

You still need to talk to the Wing Cadet Programs folks too. If for nothing else they should have the course materials and such.

Or better yet, you could just attend one of the three ALS currently on the schedule at texascadet.org.

On top of letting your commander know, there is also a group structure in Texas that you might look in to before going to wing
