|Re:||Nominations for Monarch's Own (Army Directive 2111-07)|
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Grand Alliance,
Nominations MUST be sent by a Commissioned Officer holding the billet of Commanding Officer of an RMA Chapter, the King Roger I Military Academy, or a member of the High Command. Nominations from Naval CO’s regarding RMA personnel serving their vessels will also be accepted.
Eligibility requirements for each nominee include:
• Nominee must have been a member of The Royal Manticoran Navy: The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association, Inc. for at least one year.
• Nominee must be a current or previous member (living or deceased) of the Royal Manticoran Army Branch and have served that branch for at least one full year. Ideal candidates include those who have made substantial selfless contributions to both the Army and TRMN. Activities witnessed can include anything from chapter leadership to protocols written, to scenario-based roleplay, to appearing in con minimum uniform and recruiting members for both the RMA and TRMN. Nomination should not include ONLY activities done, but what were the results of the activity.
The ideal nomination will have detailed information about the nominee and his or her specific contributions between the start of his or her membership up to September 15th of the current year and should include all dates of each action or contribution worthy of nomination. Nominations may also include letters of recommendation from other ranking officers (RMA or otherwise) that bore witness or were directly affected by those contributions.
The High Command shall convene at or around October 1st of every year to consider nominations received. This committee is made up of High Command members along with the honorary Commanding Officer of the Monarch’s Own. The committee may include 1-3 members (depending on availability) from any branch to advise the committee in their selections but have no voting power.
**Committee members who are nominated may select someone else within TRMN to act as their proxy during consideration. The proxy may not share any details involving review with the prospective nominee. Once the review process is complete for those potential members, then the proxy is relieved of duty and the normal process can continue. Proxies must be chapter/fleet command triad members, BuTrain staff, or Admiralty House officials with personal knowledge of the applicant.**
**Please be advised that this committee shall render decisions based on the strength of the nomination for each nominee; it is therefore important that the nominations be as detailed as possible to provide said nominee with the best possible chance for selection and induction.**
The incoming Monarchs Own Class and their Annual Commanding Officer shall be announced December 1st of every new year with a start date of January 1st. However, certificates shall be mailed to the individuals after announcements have been made.
If you should have any questions or require guidance on nominations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, where the senior members of our staff will be happy to provide that information to you.
In Service to Her Majesty, the Sovereign Queen of the Star Kingdom of Manticore, Elizabeth III.
