Back on June 8th I received an email from Jason Ruff, an alumnus, member, and current APMS, asking if the CBAA would like to come in and discuss the CBAA during the cadet’s zero week. He also asked if we would host a cadet lunch that week. I personally don’t think that buying lunch for all of the cadets and cadre is a good use of CBAA money but that’s not the point of this message.
So to get to the point: is anyone willing and able to take charge of the CBAA and start it moving again?
I resigned back in 2014 because I was no longer able but I have kept the website up and passed along the occasional message. Also, Paul Hesco has been keeping the PO Box going. We have not had a meeting since July 10, 2014 and by my count we only have two board members out of seven who’s terms have not expired.
I do not think we need to talk about what the CBAA needs to do, should do, or could do. We have never been short on good ideas. I also don’t think we have been short on people who are willing. The problem seems to be the able part.
If you have any thoughts on this matter please go to our website and comment under the “State of the CBAA” post (http://uwcbaa.org/) Please do not just hit reply when this comes in your email. If you do, your response will only come to me and this is a topic that needs to involve as many members as possible. If you do email me anyway, I will do my best to get back to you but please keep in mind that I’ve been trying to get this message out since June 8th.
