I wore long sleeves all the time as a C/First Sgt and when I was Cadet Commander when I didn't have to wear my service coat. But those days are gone. Now I wear wonderful corporates. Before I deployed on FEMA Corps last year, I turned in my papers for senior last June before I reported to my FEMA Campus. After I deployed for FEMA on the FEMA Corps Internship (that I noticed CAP Marketed again this year, cool!)  and grew my hair out, I wasn't shaving! I came home and bought corporates shortly thereafter.

It's really not a "unique" uniform either, as Eclipse mentioned. You can find a plethora of photos online.

In NVWG Cadet or senior, if you're not active/all of a sudden go poof we put them in I believe it's the triple 0 squadron. We refer to it as "Ghosting". Granted I'm a new senior (Flight Officer) but I would NEVER EVER 2B a cadet for failure of attendance. 2B's are a LAST RESORT. I would say a 2b should be used as a disciplinary tool when all other options have been exhausted, similar to expelling a student from school. Progressive discipline.

This is coming from a former cadet who successfully fought 2 wrongful 2B Attempts (thank god my dad was IG to help me through that process, it is NOT easy appealing a 2B....)

I understand hurting metrics and percentages and all that (trust me I know, my dad is NVWG RRO I get tired of hearing stats all the time LOL), but that's no reason to 2B Them. Ghosting them gets them off your roster, problem solved.

Ah.. good point.  I can see why CAP might want to keep the fundraising efforts local in order to keep it under control.

They shouldn't have a place at meetings, as cadets/SMs in theory have other things to do?

So how did that happen?

I'd be curious myself to see what others have done.  We haven't set anything yet at mine because it hasn't become a problem, I have observed at least one cadet using one during a meeting while I was giving the monthly safety briefing.  I know here in Massachusetts some school districts are banning them from the schools.  I'm of the belief that we should ban them as well there's no scientific evidence that they truly help anyone keep focus.  They're just the latest like slap bracelets were about 25 years ago.

I am unable to get a clear answer on this topic regarding the wearing of recruitment ribbon. If you get 2 members to sign up and join are you entitled to wear the recruitment ribbon or do they have to stay in the unit for a year to get the ribbon?

Good question. There is no particular time a member must stay an active member in order for you to receive the ribbon, HOWEVER, that doesn't mean recruit all the people like throwing noodles at a wall to see what sticks. As an effective recruiter part of your duties are to find the RIGHT people, and to make sure cadets or seniors aren't joining on impulse, but are actually doing so because they believe in the program and it's mission. There's a reason cadets have a 3 meeting minimum before joining. Like the others were saying, retention is almost considered a bigger deal than recruiting, because you can get all the people you want to join, but if they aren't staying it's not doing you or the organization any good.

Those members you recruit will need to have you added as the recruiting credit in E-services in order to be authorized the ribbon, and an F2A being put in your personnel record by your squadron commander or his/her delegated representitive doesn't hurt either.

My question is, why does CAP prohibit the use of percentage based professional fundraisers?

Oh, my guess would be...probably because most of them are blood sucking annoying leeches that keep way more than they turn over, while incessantly bothering people so much that that their tactics would give CAP a seriously damaged reputation.

But that's just a guess.

Fidget spinners, blocks, toys in general? Are they allowed at your meetings or how do you handle them. Discuss.

Your question. Why not start the discussion? Tell us about your Squadron instead of tossing something into the room so you can watch others deal with your issue.

I joined with a green card. Never stopped me from any military base activity I attended.

I had a green card at first. It was invalid once i became a citizen. But I had no documentary proof of my citizenship for the next 10 years, including my first 2 years in CAP. In fact, the only identity documents I had at all were expired passports from other countries until I was 16.

I had a citizenship certificate at my swearing in ceremony.

I was never sworn in. So, no ceremony.
