Promotions

Promotion Policy as of August 2018

Promotions within the fictional rank structure of STARFLEET and the STARFLEET Marine Corps shall be handled in accordance with the STARFLEET Membership Handbook. Typically all ranks below O-6 will be handled by the Chapter CO’s. The RC will act as the CO in this capacity for Unassigned members. Promotion Requests Up Through Rank of Captain may be submitted via the form below.

 

Promotion to O-6

In addition to meeting the requirements as defined in the Flag Promotion Criteria (24 Months in STARFLEET, and have completed both Officer Candidate School, and Officer Command College SFA courses), the nomination must clearly demonstrate a level of dedication and effort equal to or greater than that expected of a successful Chapter CO for at least one full year. A promotion board will be assembled for each nomination to judge it against this criteria. Promotions up to O-6 may be submitted via the form on the Region 3 website: http://region3.org/wp/member-recognition/promotions/.

The Board shall consist of:
Chief Admin Officer
Chief of Operations
Chapter CO from a zone other than the nominee and nominator
Region Flag Lieutenant (or other available Region 3 staff member as needed)
RC or VRC (if the RC could be presumed to be bias due to circumstances –  the VRC will remain observer to the process regardless of voting status on the panel)

 

Promotion Recommendations to and above O-7

Promotion nominations to Fleet Captain and Above may be submitted to STARFLEET at: http://sfi.org/Backup/promotions/. Anyone may nominate individuals who meet the required criteria (found at http://sfi.org/docs/Members/flag-promotion-criteria.pdf). The Executive Committee is the soul body to review and approve each Flag Promotion nomination, however the Regional Coordinator of the nominee is solicited for an endorsement/recommendation.

To receive a flag promotion recommendation from Region 3, in addition to meeting the requirements as defined in the Flag Promotion Criteria, the nomination must clearly demonstrate a continued level of dedication at or above the Regional level, or otherwise present a compelling exception for this honor. The RC will take advice from the Chief Admin Officer, Vice-Regional Coordinator, and  Chief of Operations before submitting any such recommendations.

 

Promotions from E-1 – O-5 for unassigned members/Marine Expeditionary Units

Promotions for unassigned members and Marine Expeditionary Units (MEUs) up through O-5 can be submitted via the promotion form on the Region 3 website: http://region3.org/wp/member-recognition/promotions/. Any member may submit a nomination. The primary criteria on these promotions will be Time spent In previous Grade (TIG), courseware, and demonstrated activity. In the case of MEU promotions requests the unit OIC opinion will be solitied, if they are not the nominator. For higher ranks, the Brigade OIC option will be solicited.
