Iím just really wondering what the biggest squadrons are and how many members they have. If you could help me find this out that would be great, thanks!

Are you going to count school squadrons or no? They tend to be larger.

There's no "expectation" you do anything.  If you need that information you can request it from NHQ.
If you want that information, it's available to you, and anyone else interested in taking the time.
NHQ doesn't provide that information publicly in any easily accessible format.

Also, as mentioned, the "largest" units are school squadrons, which are not really comparable to normal units.

Click the 4-way arrow in the statistics box, you can see current numbers and trends going back to 2000.

Sorry for being late to the party.

You can view the number of cadets by Unit by going to the QCUA page and downloading the excel file of data.  https://www.gocivilairpatrol.com/programs/cadets/cpo/quality-cadet-unit-award

I guess we were responding at the same time.

The top three units by number of cadets is.

SWR-TX-802  Sheldon Cadet Sqdn                 185 cadets
GLR-IN-803   Anderson Prep Academy sqdn   164 cadets
MAR-NC-825  NCLA Cadet Sqdn                     149 cadets

All three are school squadrons...

Please provide your statistics on that .

2016: Top 5 squadrons were school squadrons
2017: Top 4 squadrons were school (Same ones) (5 out of the top 6 were the tip 5 from 2016)
2018: : Top 4 squadrons were school (Same ones) (5 out of the top 6 were the tip 5 from 2016)
2019: TBD but unless squadrons had a growth explosion of 30%+ and the top dogs a decrease, it generally will be the same.

Yes... this data is from the 2018 report. We'll have to wait until they release the 2019 data.

Unless it's well over 100, they aren't even close to being "second".

Squadrons rise and fall... we'll know in the next month or two what the standing is for 2019... seems like there are more squadrons this years at over the 100 mark. Perhaps Ned can share who the top 20 are?

And I wouldn't say Overlake had always over 100 if the currently do...

So Leesburg is the biggest non-800 squadron. That's cool.

Let me just say that being that big comes with its own problems. It's a LOT of work. We've got a great team, but it's still a ton of effort.

Late to the party, had to score the datas.

See the attached. This listing is units with 50 or more "active" members (not patrons), not school squadrons.

The data was current as of 31 July 2019

Thanks! I enjoyed looking through that list.  It let me know that size doesn't always equate to better. It would be good to see another column in the spreadsheet for average number attending meetings and events. My squadron is several down from being at the top in member numbers in our Wing, and have quite a few that do not attend, but keep sending in dues as their way of 'helping'.  Yet small as we are,  we are very active and are often at the top, or near the top,  of our Wing in metrics.
