Quote from: Eclipse on February 26, 2020, 12:43:07 am^ Opening formation, post colors / announcements, awards - 15 minutes.All-hands sessions - Safety, ES training / tasking, EO. 30 minutes (or as needed)Cadet BreakoutsPT, Drill, Testing, Leadership, AE, CDISenior BreakoutsPD, Tasking, Personnel reviews, ES training & tasking, SUI prep and self-assessments, annual "stuff".Closing formation, take / homes, retire colors - 5 minutes.The rest of the time is flexible as needed.One of the keys to cohesion is the formations and the all-hands times reinforcing the "one CAP" concept and that's everyone is on the same team, working together.There is a 13-week evolution to the cadet schedule that senior trainingfits into nicely. And for starters, seniors meet every week. You can't complain there's not enough time, and blow off half the potential contact hours every year.I've inspected and mentored more then a few units where all they do is complain that there is "no time for PD and all that administration stuff", then you find out they meet only twice a month, blow off 5th weeks, and take all of December off, not to mention all the random reasons they miss meetings.Meeting only twice a month means that a member could miss only two meetings and not be seenfor over a month, losing momentum and initiative. Meeting every week insures that the momentum keeps going and that the unit doesn't grind to a halt because one guy is sick.If you don't have time to do all the things you should be doing, you're not meeting often enoughor are not properly staffed. If you find yourself with time and nothing to do, you're not doing allyou're supposed to. There's no way around that, and it's not rocket science.

I'm in a Composite. Never said otherwise. The Cadets meet every Tuesday. The Seniors meet 1st and 3rd Tuesdays. We meet in separate areas of the facility. Except for certain special occasions, where we will meet together. Occasionally the Seniors will meet during the off weeks for specific training. I held training for Mission Scanners recently for example. Hoping to start Observer classes soon. We stay busy.
