Two years ago I had a meeting with my Regional Commandant. He asked me what I hoped to gain from the meeting, but added what was not available, (that included a correction of misapplied rules). The only thing I could then suggest was that the organisation should appreciate the value of its' volunteers.
Comforting then to know that he did not take this on board, but within a month what happened without his hindrance, proved clearly that there was an alternative non-public agenda.
I understand the general feelings, you are where you because you want to be, because there is nothing better providing the Cadet experience.
Civilian Committees do not voice opinion, but they were never consulted over revised Governance. And they have not been told that, despite it not saying so in the Rules, they are accountable to the ACO, or at least that is what HQAC has told WExOs.
So once what you thought was how things worked, and that without you knowing someone has changed them, it becomes a bit unsettling, because it can undermine your level of commitment, especially when the glory seekers never have frontline experience because they do not have what it takes to relate to what makes Cadets tick.
Shame that RAFVR(T) glory seekers cannot get deployed,- it might help them to appreciate that those around them are integral to their survival
