Any member has access to the awards recommendation module. I have no duty assignments and no permissions at the moment, but I have it. I can submit recommendations (new and historic) and check my submissions. Just no approvals module.

Well, the reg says cadet officers can evaluate cadets junior in grade. I see no issue with a First Sergeant on boards aside from it. I don't think he's supposed to be on boards because of the letter of the law, but happily my CDC disagrees, and hence the 1st Sgt is on every board (except officers').

There is no "letter of the law" to that. The regulations do not state who can or cannot be on a board. It does, however, state who should not be on a board, with an emphasis on family members (e.g., if the CDC is the cadet's parent, then the CDC should not sit in on the review board).

You're correct that cadet officers may evaluate a cadet using the Form 50; however, that's literally in respect to cadet officers using the Form 50 to evaluate a cadet for promotion and make that recommendation to the Commander for the final decision. Any cadet can evaluate any cadet (although best practice would always be to evaluate top-down, obviously). You can have a C/MSgt evaluate a C/SrA using a Form 50, or even an alternative form if your unit has one, under the delegation of the chain of command; it doesn't need to be used solely for a promotion. Form 50s aren't actually required for promotions, but for the mandatory once-per-phase feedback session. Review boards usually just fall in line with that, as it's a suggested part of the leadership curriculum, whereas a "feedback session" not directly linked to a promotion loses an opportunity to train and mentor in addition to reviewing a cadet for promotion.

I don't like that the R52-16 states that a board with the cadet present must be held in accordance with the Cadet Staff Handbook which is guidance; suggested practices. In fact, the handbook even suggests congratulating the cadet at the end of the board, as well as handling sustaining the cadet in grade. Unless the Commander is apart of that board, neither of those should occur.

As answered above, NHQ will send the certificate out. It is not framed, just the certificate and summary letter.

We provide a certificate for every promotion to recognize the advancement in grade. For C/2d Lt, we'll present the promotion certificate and pin on the new insignia because we cannot guarantee as to when the Mitchell Award certificate will actually arrive in the mail. In the meantime, we get a nice wood frame for the certificate for when it does arrive. Once we have it, we put the award in, tape the letter to the back, and present it at a subsequent meeting.

I recommend not withholding a promotion ceremony just because you don't have the award certificate yet.

That's done through the "Award Recommendation" module, which is only open to Personnel Officers and

You'll need to provide substantiation of historical awards to your staff who will then enter them for approval.

Best bet is to scan / photograph the certificate(s) and 120(s) and email them to your Personnel Officer.

Yes, that's important, processing them is one thing, people get busy, but the effective date should be the date
they completed the last task.

I process approvals as soon as all requirements are met that way their time in grade starts. We recognize all that promoted on the 4th meeting of the month.

I normally process all promotions on the 4th Tuesday promotion night, but the Mitchell I process immediately to get the certificate in time for the promotion night. YMMV

The Mitchell award is separate from the promotion per se.

If the stars align, that's fine, but a cadet should not be delayed their promotion or
pinning just to present the certificate, especially in light of the fact that the Mitchell
should be presented by a Group CC or higher, which sometimes takes more then happenstance coordination.

FWIW, the last one we did arrived in about a week.

There are also some activities that are or include ES training. Some encampments have an advanced training corp that has ES training. You have to have already been to encampment previously to attend and it may not be offered in your state. There is also the National Emergency Services Academy which has ES training in Indiana at Camp Atterbury in July.  There is also the Lone Star Emergency Services Academy held in Texas. They and other special activities are listed here http://www.ncsas.com/. You have to have attended encampment before you can participate in cadet special activities.
