|Re:||Chain of Command and Appropriate Contacts (Admiralty Order 1308-06)|
We are The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association. As such we have some limitations on what we can, and cannot do. It is important that these limitations be respected. To that end, I will describe here our Chain of Command as of this moment. This supersedes anything previously published and is effective immediately until a new Membership Handbook is published with the updated information.
The Chain of Command for this organization is as follows:
On the Board:
- First Lord of the Admiralty – President & Chairmain
- First Space Lord – Senior Executive Vice President
- Commandant, Royal Manticoran Marine Corps – Executive Vice President
- Marshal of the Royal Manticoran Army – Senior Vice President
- High Admiral of the Grayson Space Navy – Vice President
- Appropriate Board Member
- (Board Members Staff)
- Space Lords
- (Space Lords Staff)
- Fleet Commander
- (Fleet Commanders Staff)
- Squadron Commander
- (Squadron Commanders Staff)
- Divisional Commander
- (Divisional Commanders Staff)
- Chapter Commanding Officer
- Chapter Executive Officer
- Bosun/Department Heads
- Department Executive Officer/Senior Enlisted
The Staffs of the higher levels should, in general have authority to speak for the people they work for. That is their purpose. While their word may not contain the same force of law as say a Space Lords, it should be considered as good.
Additionally, we need to discuss appropriate contacts for certain things at this point. Although it had happened in the past, and I thought we had dealt with this, recent incidents show me we have not. We have a few people who have permission to interact with BuNine and David with regards to procedural questions, uniform questions, technical questions and artwork questions. One of those is our First Space Lord, who is our direct Liaison with David for matters such as this. Another is the First Lord of the Admiralty who can bring the questions to BuNine and who has some authority to release certain artwork for TRMN uses. You should be contacting these people *FIRST*, before you reach out to David or BuNine directly, as in many cases, these questions have been asked and answered and we already have the answer on hand. If you follow your chain of command, you will find that these communications are smoother in the future. By following the chain of command, we can ensure that questions get answered for everyone.
If we should hear of any unauthorized contacting of David or BuNine (outside of what would constitute normal business [i.e. you are putting on a convention and wish to invite David or BuNine, or you are one of the few who works with BuNine on specific projects, or you meet them at a convention where they are open for input/questions]) the person responsible may be removed from TRMN. We maintain our Official status through an arrangement we have with David and BuNine, and non-official contact asking for artwork, clarifications on how a ship looks, uniform policies, why TRMN operates in a certain way, all of these jeopardize that status.
This is endorsed by our Official Liaison to David Weber and BuNine.
