R15 RC Nominations Begin


Commanding Officers of Region Fifteen,

It is my duty as the Inspector General for STARFLEET to announce the
opening of the nomination phase for the Region Fifteen Regional Coordinator
(RC) Election. The nomination phase will run from April 1, 2018 thru April
30, 2018, 11:59 pm Eastern Standard Time. The term of the Regional
Coordinator will be from July 1, 2018 thru June 30, 2020.

Those seeking nomination for Regional Coordinator must receive at least 10%
of the nominations from commanding officers of chapters in good standing in
the region. For Region Fifteen that means each prospective nominee must get at
least two nominations each to be eligible to run for Regional Coordinator.
Those chapter COs submitting nominations must include the following
information in their email/letter: In an instance where a chapter CO is the
RC or planning to run for RC, the first officer may submit the nomination
on behalf of the chapter assuming that the RC is the one being nominated.
If the incumbent RC or CO is nominating someone else they may go ahead and
submit on behalf of their ship if they are the CO.

– Name of the nominating CO’s chapter
– The nominating CO’s name and SCC#
– The nominating CO’s contact information (email, mailing address)

them to the following address:

Office of the Inspector General STARFLEET
Attn: Fleet Captain Stephen Stott
114 Brickingham Way
Columbia, SC 29229

If only one candidate is nominated that candidate will immediately become
the Regional Coordinator upon announcement of the election results. If any
candidate receives 50%+1 or more of the nominations from the chapters in
the region, that candidate automatically will become the RC upon
announcement of the results. If no one nominee reaches the 50%+1 of
nominations and there is more than one nominee then we will move to the
next phase which is the election phase. The person receiving the majority
of votes from eligible chapters in the region will win the election and
upon announcement of the results become the Regional Coordinator.

Again, the deadline for submitting nominations is 11:59 pm EST, April 30,
2018. If there are any questions please let me know. Also please make sure
you email your input to IG@SFI.ORG. Thank you.

Live long and prosper,

Inspector General STARFLEET


R15 RC Announces His Resignation


Good morning,

It is after much deliberation that I must announce my resignation as Regional Coordinator effective June 1, 2018.

This was not an easy decision to make. I sought this position, not because I wanted “to be in charge” of anything, but rather because I saw a way that I could assist this Region and this organization that has given much to me over the last 25+ years. I came in with some great ideas and a lot of enthusiasm. Many of those ideas have been implemented and I think it has helped the Region grow stronger.

It is not because of anyone or anything on the FLEET side that I have chosen to make this decision. Since shortly after taking office, I have been dealing with a series of difficulties in most aspects in my life; my health and that of family, major changes at work along with an increase in stress and hours, and many other things.

The continued stress has been wearing and it makes it increasingly difficult to give STARFLEET the proper time and respect that it deserves. As such, my duty is clear.

While I was not able to accomplish everything that I had set out to, I feel that I will leave the Region in better shape than when I started.

I believe that there should be enough time for a full election cycle to take place between now and June 1, so that we can allow for a smooth transition to the next Regional Coordinator.

I want to thank the Regional staff for stepping up and taking on their positions to help Region 15 to prosper. We have had some ups and downs, but I would like to believe that there have been more ups than downs.

Thank you all for giving me the chance to serve. I am hopeful that when the current stresses lessen, that I will be able to serve in a higher capacity once more. Until then, I will be stepping back so that STARFLEET does not add stress, but rather is a way to relax and enjoy the fandom that we all love.

With respect and my sincere thanks,

MGEN E. Jerry Beaulieu

R15 RC New Year’s Remarks


Members of Region 15,

As we move into a new year, I want to let you all know something that was announced over on the STARFLEET Members Only page. Effective at 12:01 this morning (1/1/2018) Fleet Admiral Robert Westfall has stepped down as Commander, STARFLEET. Dan Toole will be moving from the VCS position to the CS position and there will be some confirmations coming down the line. Robert has stepped down due to health reasons, so I would ask that you all please be respectful of his decision.

2017 has had its ups and downs. I have had a number of very difficult things happen over the last six months, but I am hopeful that they are behind me for now, and that I can go into 2018 on a high note. We have some big things coming up this year. Our 25th Anniversary as a Region, the 15th Anniversary of the 15th Brigade, a new Awards program, some further improvements to our communications channels, and more (I hope.)

I want to wish a Happy New Year to everyone in Region 15 and beyond. I look forward to what the new year will bring to the Region and the FLEET.

MGEN E. Jerry Beaulieu
Regional Coordinator Region 15
