Last time the staff met we discussed having AAR3DL
assume the roll of the EOO, this is effective at 110001Z Tuesday (see
attached message). The reason I am doing this so late in my tenure..
and differently than in past times (remember I usually ask for
volunteers) is that we felt like we wanted to round out AAR3DL's
training so that the new SMD (whenever he or she is appointed) will
have a list of qualified candidates to pick from for the various
I feel very strongly about the need for this training
and believe it will only help us in the future. Further, I hope that
some of you that are sitting on the fence about the state officers jobs
will volunteer for some of these jobs in the future. Most of you know
by now that I like to include everyone to the extent that I can but
this can only happen with your participation. When YOU volunteer we
all learn and benifit from your experience.
So what do you get out of volunteering? Well I can tell
you from my perspective I got a great group of friends. Some of whom I
would only have barely know otherwise. I also learned how the MARS
program works and got to make some decisions that guided our progam
along. I know most of you are busy but it only takes about 10 hours a
month for most of these positions.
Keep up the good work
