Hi everyone, in this thread we'll be accepting nominations for Base Commanding Officer (CO).

According to the Rebel Legion charter, nominations may be made starting 12:01 A.M. EST September 1st and continue until 11:59 P.M. EST, September 10th.

All nominations must be seconded. A member may nominate themselves but that will require a second and third nomination. Standing officers must post their desire to seek another term or if they decline to seek another term (no response is considered a decline). A second is not required for standing officers.

If there are no nominations made for a particular office by 11:59 P.M. EST September 10th, then the officers holding these positions will remain in office. If a standing Outpost or Base Commander chooses not seek another term and no nominations are made for that unit, the XO must accept or decline being promoted to CO. If the XO declines (no response is considered a decline) then the Legion Council is empowered to appoint a new CO or to consider having the unit absorbed into a neighboring unit due to lack of leadership.


Also please be sure to participate in the nominations for Legion Council, Legion Commanding Officer (LCO) and any Detachments or other sub-units you belong to.

Nominated

Jeff Schipman - Dawmer
Brian Bean - Masterbean

Accepted

Jeff Schipman - Dawmer
Brian Bean - Master bean

I just want to inform you all of my intention NOT to run for Base CO this year. While it was fun and cool, I do not feel like I have the ability to keep up with the website as much as the position requires per my current internet situation. Hopefully in the future I will be in a position to do so again, but in the meantime I will continue to be an active member and serve in smaller ways here and there as I can.

Thanks for a wonderful year, all! Leia Buns

Hello fellow Central Base rebels, as current XO I am posting my desire to continue commanding Central Base. I believe since Teresa is stepping down after the elections, that means I am running for CO? If I have that wrong, I apologize and will simply run for XO Laughing
I've truly enjoyed helping out in this capacity and would look forward to doing so for a full term.

Is it possible to fourth a nomination? Jeff, I see you've already accepted, but I want to throw my support in there for you.

Just a bit about Jeff. He's kind, caring, and knows how to get things done. He's fair and honest and many of you have already dealt with him and know these things first hand. I think he'll do a great job as C.O..

Teresa, thanks for your time and effort. I hope that you won't be like a 501st C.O., which basically means when you leave the position you disappear. I hope you'll stay active and continue fighting the good fight Very Happy.

Not to derail the thread, but I just wanted to clarify that A.) I'm not going anywhere, B.) I'm not going to be any less active this year, C.) I am happy to serve our base in any lesser capacity this year, and D.) I will definitely consider running again in the future when I'm in a better position to do so.

Love you all and this group too much to disappear on ya. Very Happy

And thank you for the kind comments.

Masterbean, the rules for running are posted in the RL charter

Quote:
Nominations for offices may be made starting 12:01 A.M. EST September 1st of each year and continue until 11:59 P.M. EST, September 10th. September 11th through September 20th are reserved for candidate Question and Answer (Q&A) sessions. Members may post questions for the candidates to answer. On September 20th candidates will post final statements. Voting will begin on 12:01 A.M. EST September 21st through 11:59 P.M. EST September 30th, after which no more votes will be accepted. All nominations and voting must be on The Rebel Legion website. Nominations, Question/Answer, and Voting for LCO and Legion Administrative Council Positions will be in the Election Forum. Nominations, Question/Answer, and Voting for Base/Outpost/Detachment COs can be in their respective forum areas. The COG will oversee all election processes. The COG will archive all election results. Every Rebel Legion member with full ACTIVE status may vote. Members that are placed on the RESERVE status may not vote until their status has been reactivated by their Base/Outpost CO. Both ARCHIVE (inactive) members and Forum-users have no voting privileges.
Notice of upcoming elections will be posted on the forums and be sent out by a mass email one week prior to the election by The Captain of the Guard. However, notification of any elections to individual members of a unit is ultimately the job of Base/Outpost/Detachment Commanders and Regional Captains.
All nominations must be seconded. A member may nominate themselves and that will require a second and third nomination. Standing officers must post their desire to seek another term or decline to seek another term (no response is considered a decline). No second is required for standing officers.



So are you nominating yourself? And as Teresa just stated, she is staying on as Central base CO
