My squadron had most of the seniors with 3 to 4 jobs just so we could function. We buckled down on recruiting, now it's not a problem. I will agree that to many jobs on one person is not good. No matter how talented, go-getter, can-do, etc. you are, unnecessary stress and a slow down of quality will result. Dragon 3-2,I'm not saying you cant do it, I'm just saying its a lot. I'm in the AZ Guard, with RSP Drill Weekends and CAP, of which I was Deputy Commander of Seniors, Safety Officer, Transportation, and Assistant Supply Officer, I was pretty busy. I no longer have those positions because I am getting ready to leave for BCT, and we finally have more seniors!!!!!. As far as you in the Guard, that's awesome, whats your MOS?.

Quote from: usafaux2004 on August 10, 2011, 12:41:29 pmI've now been to a whole FOUR Squadron meetings as a SM. So far, these are the observations I've made: SMs aren't really required to participate in much outside of the required training. I could come in to the meeting, do the opening formation (or not), and then just drop in on various unit activities throughout the night. Because SMs aren't really required to do much, or are focusing on a particular track, training, project, you may not see them there every week. Our squadron ran an Observer course that just recently ended. The weekly attendance dropped drastically on the SM side of the house. A lot of SMs wear Field and Dress Uniforms, not many of them wear them properly, or well. As a former cadet, and an HGA attendee, proper uniform wear is my thing. I've fixed some issues when I find them with cadets, but I've pretty much keep my mouth closed for the SM side of the house. Part of that is that I'll disengage again once classes start up on September 7th, and as a non-staff, "just here for the Summer" member, I don't have the authority or the place really to correct all of the issues. I'm sure some folks will jump on me for this, but I don't think it's unreasonable to expect people to wear their uniforms properly if they choose to wear them. I'll add more to this as I observe more.
Quote from: usafaux2004 on August 24, 2011, 12:46:21 pmWe've done two ORIs now. The results were pretty good, with formations of at least 16+ SMs in each.. For whatever (numerous) reasons, I'm known as a uniform stickler. I don't expect people to sew in creases (I don't do this either). Or Starch their uniforms into stone figurines of glory (I don't do this either). But I will let someone know discretely if their laces are sticking out, if their gig line is off, if their ribbons are off, etc. It's the small things that add up to proper wear and uniformity. Anything on top is extra, and usually, as you said, outside the time parameters professionals have when working a 9 to 5 and volunteering for CAP. I've been to SIX meetings now, and have only two left until night classes steal me away for the (final) year. After that I hope to move back to the unit area, get transportation, and re-engage. Cadet Programs are obviously an interest. Public Affairs always interested me, so I may pursue that while unable to participate at the meetings even. ES (just got UDF Trainee signed off again) for the most part will have to wait a year until trying to get my GTM back to active status. I was worried initially, about what I'm going to do as a SM. Cadet Programs made sense, but typically even the CP Officers are doing other jobs at the unit. I think now I've figured out that there's plenty of opportunities, and will look forward to getting into the thick of it. As a side note, already down 9lbs since late July/early August, so 28 more lbs, and I may put my BDUs/Blues back on. Same set I wore as a cadet.
