Region 11 Coordinator

Members:

It is with deep sadness that I have accepted the resignation of Region 11 Coordinator, Sergeant Major M Smith. M contacted me with her decision and after discussing this with her, I know this was not an easy decision for her to make. I wish her the best in her travels.

At this time, I would like to announce that Vice Region 11 Coordinator, Brigadier Liam Smith, is now serving as the Interim Region 11 Coordinator until an election can be completed. The USS Genesis shall be authorized to serve as the Interim Flagship of Region 11 during this time.

Brigadier Liam Smith, I look forward to your participation on the Admiralty Board as the representative of STARFLEET Region 11. Congratulations and best wishes for your future success!

STARFLEET Historian

Members:

For the last few months, the team has been unsuccessful in contacting our STARFLEET Historian, Commander Michael Hardegree-Ullman. I have reached out to his chapter Commanding Officer, who has experienced the same silence from Michael. While we are concerned and hoping all is well with him, we need an active Historian for our organization; therefore we are making a change to this position. I would like to personally thank Michael for his work in this position and I wish him the best in his future endeavors.

At this time, I would like to announce that Vice Admiral Chrissy Killian is hereby appointed to the position of STARFLEET Historian. Chrissy, as many of you will remember, was appointed to the Historian’s department last October. As a current member of the department, Chrissy has a strong understanding of where the department is currently at, as well as what needs to be done to bring it up-to-date. Chrissy brings a wealth of knowledge to this position, as well as a drive to ensure our historical records are updated and maintained for our members.

Please join me in welcoming Chrissy to her new position. If you would like
to help out with our organization’s history, please contact Chrissy at
historian@sfi.org.

In Service,

Wayne

I have received word from the Inspector General that, in the matter of the Region 3 Regional Coordinator Election, Colonel Jeremy Carsten has received a majority of the votes cast and has met the eligibility requirements to serve as the Regional Coordinator.

Here is the official verbiage from the Inspector General:

“It is my duty to announce that the Region 3 Coordinator election has concluded, with COL Jeremy Carsten, based on the polling of the chapters of Region 3, wining in the election phase.  He is hereby ordered to take command of Starbase 3 and the 3rd Fleet, serving a 2 year term, beginning on 6/1/2015 and expiring on 5/31/2017. Furthermore, upon assumption of command, under Article 2, Section 1, Subsection B of the Criteria for Command Grade Promotions, COL Carsten shall be promoted to the rank grade of O-7, as either a Brigadier or a Fleet Captain.  May God have mercy on his soul.”

So, in accordance with STARFLEET rules, Colonel Jeremy Carsten is hereby recognized as the winner of said election and is appointed to the position of Regional Coordinator of Region 3, as well as promoted to the rank of Brigadier, effective on June 1, 2015.
