The AF abuses this terribly, but flight suits should only be worn when participating in flying, and going to or returning from flying.

Why?

There's about five paragraphs spread over three pages in AFI 36-2903 on just who is allowed to wear a flight suit.
But if you meet the criteria and are assigned to a flying position or a non-flying position that has to be filled by a flyer, you're good to go to wear the flight suit as your specified duty uniform.

Right. That was the basis behind my “why”.

Hasn't been that way in the USAF since the late 70's.

...by that time they will be saying "Black boots are cool... Green boots are not cool..."

Just because someone may be more used to ABUs with green boots, it does not make look the ABUs with black boots any less professional. Lets face it, are you sure that if the Air Force decides it will be using black boots tomorrow, do you think that after one or two years anyone will say "that does not look cool?"

By that time they'll be on their next uniform...again...

For additional clarification:

Cadet duty assignments to not earn any badge or device, with the exception of Cadet Advisory Council.

I used to see the AFROTC cadre in college walking around in their flight suits, yet they had no airfield and no aircraft, nor flying duty.

I asked one time about it. The reason I received from their deputy commander: "Oh, this is so much more comfortable to wear."

1) Is there a difference between the two positions or jobs?

I would consider a "Volunteer Professional" to be someone who specializes, or has a great deal of experience, in organizing volunteer programs/activities. This would be the go-to person for information on setting up or managing an organization or event.

A "Professional Volunteer" can mean a number of things: one who contributes their own time and dedication to service under a volunteer organization, acting professionally (i.e., conduct) within that organization, being widespread and participating in a number of volunteer service capacities, etc.

Quote
2) What is the point at which you reach the Volunteer Professional or Professional Volunteer status?

That's subject, but I think it's how you present yourself and "earn your way up the ladder." Essentially, it's time and experience.

Quote
3) Can you be one without the other?

Well, you can most definitely be someone who contributes to an organization but is not the person I would consult to lead a project. Being great at comms doesn't makes you the person to put it charge of a training exercise, and maybe the person in charge of the training exercise doesn't have the skill to perform a fine-tuned technical task. They're both professionals in their own right, but not necessarily the same function.

I would think to be a "Volunteer Professional" that you would need to be a "Professional Volunteer" first.

Quote
4) Is there such a thing as a Qualitative or Quantitative category for this concept?

Qualitative, absolutely. Your qualities will make you shine in a volunteer organization, not the number of times you contribute. Someone who shows up to everything but doesn't offer anything is useless. An activity that has 100 people but nobody is trained isn't much an activity, especially if it isn't adequately organized/managed.

You need quantity, yes. But not at the cost of quality and effectiveness in what you do.

5) If you have the KSA’s and no position can you have the same impact of someone that has the position but no experience?

"Position" may be another subjective term. If referring to a specific assignment, generally, the person without the position may be someone of influence, but they won't have the authority. They have to tackle that challenge of influencing and convincing others (i.e., buy-in).

Then again, maybe someone with the experience can be assigned as a mentor for someone with the position. We do this all the time in the cadet world---cadets "run the show" while seniors "supervise and mentor."

This is a chicken vs. egg scenario. What comes first: Experience or opportunity?

I would never call myself either.  Is someone you know, waiting on pins and needles until they can add one of the phrases to their resume and online signature?  ::)
