Everything you are describing falls into the wheelhouse of the PAO fundamentally. It sounds like PA is the track you want.

Thanks for the reply.

Well, we already have three PAOs. But maybe another could fit in somewhere. I dunno.

PAO is so geared to " performance as a public affairs officer as they relate to community relations, media relations, internal relations, internet communications, online presence management, and mission participation, and as liaison with other organizations and agencies."

And working with those agencies is not my interest. My interest is reaching out to potential recruits in full blown advertising and marketing mode. So maybe Recruiting Officer would be better. Still pondering.

What duty assignment you have is irrelevant to the conversation of what is official and what is not. Get with your CC, put it all into a PA plan, and execute it

So I made it to Mission Pilot status (along with MS, MO and AP)  Now its time to start up Level II and I can't decide on a track.

My ideal track would use my 46 years of advertising/marketing/photography/video production/website/social media experience.  So thats a little of PAO, a little of ITO and the Recruiting part of RRO.  LOL

I already built and maintain the squadrons unofficial website. (I say unofficial since Im not an ITO)

Using other community Facebook pages, I already advertise and boost posts (self pay) of CAP events to generate interest. But again, unofficially on my own. (AND YES ... I'm careful what goes online. Don't even go there.)

IOW ... I'm really trying to leverage the media that teens use to get us 'out there' more than the folks just handing out pamphlets at schools and such.

So I would enjoy a track that would be in this realm ... but I don't guess we have a 'create your own track' .... that I would call "Advertising and Marketing Officer" or similar.

Maybe just staying where I am and working without the title is the way to go. As long as I'm helping the squadron, I don't mind staying Level I.

So now the Wing & Region CC need to review each VG mistake and decide whether it is worthy of being forwarded to NHQ?

Any noise on this is better then no noise, but as PHall says, many of the VG issues are internal QA which they may or may not
blame on lack of a CAP spec, but generally are just "didn't bother to check stuff", which they generally fix, but requires another
member cycle of hassle, and that's assuming the issue is noted before it's been sewn on, etc., at the member's expense.

There should be terms in the contract for QA penalties when identified, especially the really blatant stuff.

And until those specifications are complete, that excuse will continue to exist.  Again, good on anyone working
on them, but considering the significant backlog of seemingly easy curriculum and program corrections already outstanding
where is any assurance this actually ever happens when it hasn't existed in the last 75 years?

Its dark here - after seven thirty at night - and I'm going to miss my Squadrons PT night tonight, which I could use very much right now thanks to all the German doughnuts at the beginning of the day and the German beers at the end of the day. I think I'd have trouble making the FIRST mile tonight (GA045 typically runs a three mile PT).

Auf Wiedersehen, Kameraden!

That DD Form 365-F ain't fillin' itself out, there, big guy.  Step on the scale.

Anywhere you find a sizable Polish-American community, there's always paczki (punch-ski), which are essentially jelly donuts served until Mardi Gras.

Having grown up in Detroit, pączki was always a peripheral thing to the non-Polish kid (like pierogi, or gołąbki)

Then I became an adult, and realized "Whoa, this ain't no ordinary bismark!"

I miss me some pączki.  Really
