Today we announce a bit of a change in the Fleet Command Office. We offer our sincerest congratulations and condolences to all parties involved! LLAP and Good Luck!
On December 1, 2014 Fleet Commanding Officer Admiral Cody Glenn made the following Fleet Wide Announcement:
“Good morning from the Fleet Command Staff.
When we chose to create this organization, we did so with the understanding that launching a new organization would be, by far, more difficult than simply running a chapter of an existing organization. It would require a hierarchy and a chain of command, so that everyone who wanted to volunteer for a leadership position could carry their own weight, instead of one or two people carrying it all. It would require new rules, regulations, and bylaws in order to work properly. It would also require precedents to be set, so that those who take over positions in the future have a clear knowledge of how things work.
The difficulty in starting an organization from scratch comes from setting those precedents and building a strong foundation that can continue to be built upon. It is my belief that we have accomplished every step… except for one.
Today, a new precedent is set, limiting the Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer positions to a single consecutive term of two years in office. Those in these positions may only hold the office for one consecutive term. Whereas Michael Tolleson and I officially took these offices on May 29th, 2013, our terms will conclude on May 29th, 2015. At that time, a new Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer, appointed by the existing Fleet Commanding Officer and Fleet Executive Officer, will take office.”
To follow this, on January 1, 2015, he made the announcement of the two lucky officers who were chosen to begin their training. Please help us welcome and congratulate Commander Nathan Adams from California on his promotion to Fleet Commanding Officer in Training, and to Captain Jenn Russell of Nevada to her promotion to Fleet Executive Officer in Training! We will see you in office effective May 29th!!
