Stick to being an operator ...


Yep. As I've said before, I prefer to just be a little worker bee.

Its fun to poke the bear every now and then though. ;)

+1 I see a lot of classes that have nothing to do with CAP
and don't need tracking.

A lot of classes that had no CAP purpose eventually got into CAP, like COML for example. It's best to push ahead and not wait for CAP. See also our sUAS program!

As to specialty track tasks, those should
be on the pamphlet checklist.

Checklists that regularly get lost, misplaced, worked through by multiple mentors, etc. and then discarded upon completion rather than being put in the member file. This goes in the member e-file and doesn't get lost, misplaced, is able to track multiple mentor sign-offs, and is retained upon completion.

Please let me know what you think.

I like how it has all the specialty track tasks listed in a single list. Much easier than a collection of worksheets or pamphlets.

Future version plan includes a tab to show completion rates for PD progressions and FEMA progression chains. I'm also playing with commenting permission chains so that we can get mentors to sign off with commented approval that is verifiable by wing.

In a team drive setup, we should be able to allow commanders to monitor PD progression beyond just track completion.

Honestly, you have no idea how CAP works.

CAP is a volunteer organization, that's literally the only way the paradigm and ROI works.  The failures
are in retention of people, organizational knowledge, and lack of strategic plans that stir members' souls.

Stick to being an operator, or invest some time in leadership roles, then get back to us with your "idears" in 5 years or so.

"Budget" from what?

"Lobby" who?

You've been in CAP far too long to not understand how it works, unless it's willful.

Thats my point. "How it works" ... apparently needs to change or what is our future? A Cadet education program only by year 20xx?

"How it works" is letting us slip down to nothingness in the SAR world (except for the plain clothes Cell Phone guys).

How many posts here read like the one Eclipse wrote above?  Numerous.

"We've always done it this way" ... <<<    Time to wake up don't you think.

No budget? Ask not receive not. Time to hit up Congress or somebody?

Last I knew the only paid staff at Wing HQs are the civilian admin assistants (1 per Wing)...

Well with CAP's status with EMAs and others being like Eclipse mentions above, maybe its time for each Wing to budget in a lobbyist. Who can go after all these organizations and get us in the door. The occasional visit from a local Commander obviously isn't doing the trick. Time to be aggressive.

Of course I should have put that in a new thread in a different category. LOL
