A word from the assistant editor

This special edition presents a broad range of perspectives on the profession of arms. It is a unique opportunity to showcase Non-Commissioned Members (NCMs) written contributions. At the center of this section is the Chief Warrant Officer of the Canadian Armed Forces position paper on the importance of fostering an educational culture at the Chief Warrant Officer Robert Osside Institute on the Profession of Arms. This position paper intends to further the debate on the importance of a dynamic learning culture for NCMS as members of the Profession of Arms.

This section also presents three papers written by students of the Senior Appointment Program on the challenges of being a senior appointee Chief Warrant Officer in the CAF. Finally, a paper by a Royal Canadian Air Force senior NCM discusses the position and rank of Chief Warrant Officer in the CAF. Hopefully, this section will spark a debate on these issues but also encourage other NCMs to put pen to paper and to publish their valuable thoughts.
