See my response on FB. The answer is yes, as far as C.D.F. is concerned. Other organizations may have different rules.

For those without FB,...
Quote from: AFAdm. Jenner
Over all group membership, is wide open for multiple member/citizenships.

I'm not 100% familiar with BFC's membership rules but, if you're referring to specific chapters, then yes, you can only be an active member of one at a time, within that group.

For example, if you were to be assigned to BSR-52 Battlestar Firestorm (current C.D.F. flagship), then you would only be allowed to be an active member on that chapter within the C.D.F. However, you could hold and perform any other duty in the C.D.F., that didn't require you to be a member of a specific chapter, IE organization level office/position.

Speaking for the C.D.F. we do not particularly care if you hold a membership in another chapter in another group simulataneously, so long as whatever duties you have in your C.D.F. chapter get done.

C.C.A. and BFC may have different rules. While all of these are members of the Colonial Alliance, they run, manage and draft their own rules and guidelines for functioning within that group.

Very cool indeed anyone who works at NASA is a hero just by being part of the space program is historical. 

Jack Klugman a true actor and Icon in my opinion i grew up watch the TV show the "Odd Couple" some days i laugh so i hard i cry.  The combination of him with Tony Randall just stellar in ever respect two actors whom really complimented each other i will miss very much.

As for Storm-in Norman the man is a strategic genius who has gone down in military history.

CDF | Policies / Re: Board of Directors - Q&A
« Last post by FAdm Jenner on August 31, 2012, 05:03:18 PM »
Thank you for your answer, AFADM Jenner. That kinda clears things up... a little. I still confess to being confused about the whole matter and the way it all seemed to happen almost overnight and then all topics/discussions regarding it were erased from the forums.

It did not happen over night. That's the main thing you and everyone else, needs to understand. This was no sudden fit, and then poof, it's done. It actually occurred over the space of 2-3 weeks. Many phone long phone conversations were exchanged among many of the main people involved. Most it, DID NOT occur on the forum. Therefore it has the appearance of happening overnight. Also, those conversations did not get erased from the forums, they got moved to a non-public area. Some of the conversations got pretty personal and nasty. It was determined that in the best interest of the CDF, a visitors first impression of us, should not be a bunch of hate filled, name calling threads where a situation that no longer exists and has been resolved were being discussed.


How was it determined who was given the opportunity to return to the CDF? I think it's great that such an option was offered, just curious as to how it was determined who got offiered it.

It was determined by myself, Adm. Rivera and AFAdm. Merrit, who would and would not be allowed to return if they so chose. How specifically that was determined is simple. Those who were "leading" those who were removed, were NOT given the option to return nor will they be. All the rest of the crews of the departed ships were given the option to return. Some did, some did not.


Is there any way to find out about the Board of Directors and how the CDF operates since it became a business, since the page for it off the main CDF site does not work?

Yes, I know, I need to rebuild that section.

Basically, the Board of Directors is the legal, governing body of the CDF Corporation. The board consists of 4 people, currently, Myself, AFAdm Merrit, Adm. Rivera and Adm. Caparella.

How it works:
The board of directors manages the day to day legal responsibilities/issues of the CDF, they ARE NOT micro managers. The BoD DOES NOT "run" the day to day business of the fan club part of the CDF. They do not manage the Fleets, chapters or anything else. That's the Octagons job. They do however, have veto authority over any decision made by the Octagon WHEN and only when, a decision made by the Octagon would have repercussions for the legal entity of the CDF.

The BoD has 4 positions;
1. CEO
3. Secratary
2. Tresurer
4. Director

Appointments to the BoD are for currently, indefinite terms. However, I expect to be changing this at some point. As soon as the board can work out a workable system for voting/rotating members. There are currently 2 ways to leave the BoD, resign or be voted off by the remainder of the board.
When a member of the board leaves, all positions below the one leaving moves up 1 slot. The remaining slot is then filled by the remaining board voting a new member in.

It is my intention, to have this open slot eventually be voted on from among recommendations made by the fleet commanders, after consulting with their memberships.

The hard thing to understand is, The Octagon is NOT the BoD, even though some of it's members do compromise the BoD at this time. And Vice Versa. Being in the Octagon, does not guarantee inclusion in the BoD, and being on the BoD does not guarantee begin in the Octagon. At least not yet. We're still working out those details and trying to devise the best scenario possible.


Thanks for the information, sir!


Derek
