(pronounced KA-dray or KAH-dree or KAH-dreh)

This is a slippery little word because it can denote both an individual within a group and the group itself. More specifically, the aforementioned group is made up of people unified by some bond such as membership in an organization or training in a specialized skill set.

Example sentence: The cadre of emerging designers stuck together even after they graduated, attending industry events, studying for the NCIDQ, and even going to national tradeshows together.
