Region 3 News
It is with great sadness that I must report that CAPT Cody Glen has requested to step down as the Region Chief Communications Officer, in order to handle personal matters and focus his remaining efforts and energies closer to home. Cody brought not just amazing professional grade products in the Fleet Channels, and in establishing the other communications we now all enjoy, but also a fun and professional attitude that has been a pleasure to work with. He will be missed on staff, and leaves some very large shoes to fill.
Now speaking to those soon to be empty shoes...I have been asked by the RC to solicit applications for the position of Region 3 Chief Communications Officer. The duties and description of that post are:
The Chief of Communications (“CoC”) is responsible for the coordinating communication between Chapters in the Region, developing the branding/stylesheet for the Region, and the publishing and issuing of the Region 3 Newsletter, Fleet Channels. The CoC will generate a calendar of events that includes inter-chapter activities, Region 3 events, STARFLEET events, and any known conventions of interest to the Region. The form of the calendar is left to the current technology. The CoC will also utilize any other current, applicable technologies to facilitate communications within the region, at the direction of the RC.
The CoC shall have assistant(s) and will select them with the assistance of the CoS and with the confirmation of the RC.
The first responsibility of every Region Staff Member is to adhere to and comply with all STARFLEET’s rules and regulations. Further responsibilities include, but are not limited to:
• Fulfilment of responsibilities of the individual positions as described in this R3 Handbook.
• Report as requested and required by this handbook and direction from the RC or CoS.
• To be a proponent of the Region by being a visible and participating member of the Region.
• Submission of articles to all issues of the Region 3 newsletter, Fleet Channels.
• Attendance at Region Staff meetings is required. Lack of attendance can be grounds for removal from an office should consistent and unjustified attendance problems arise. The key here is unjustified – we all know this is a volunteer organization and more pressing matters come up, but this should be the exception, not the rule.
We will be taking applications until 1 Jan 2012, with an announcement of who was selected to happen within a week or two there after (to allow the RC time to review applicants, hold interviews, and make the selection). This is a big, visible, roll within the region and I encourage all looking for a challenge to step up and answer the call. Interested applicants please submit applications to rc alias.
