CADET OFFICER FORUM 15/3/08, 1600 hr
**********************************
As of today, only 10% of the Cadet Officer's population has signed up for the Forum. I am truly disheartened as this Forum is organised for you, the Leaders of tomorrow. We have so much to share and learn. I believe you too have some burning issues that needs clarification. We only meet once or twice a year. I urge you to make that special effort to be present for the Forum. Your CCA trainings at the school units can always be postponed. I hope AKE prep training would not be an excuse too. Please pass this urgent message to all Cadet Officers that you know. Thank you.
