Admiral’s Log Entry: Your leaders

“If you want to judge leadership, why not start at the beginning?”  Picard- Peak Performance, Stardate: 42923.4

Admiral’s Log, Stardate: 73021.9: I will stop by various chapter meetings (sometimes unannounced) just to see how members of our Star Trek family is doing. It always amazes me in how each chapter does things just different from the other chapters. The way they conduct the meeting, the way they present news from the fleet, the way they recognize their members for their achievements. They all have their own way of doing things based upon the needs of the members. I especially like it when the various leaders help each other out when one is seeking advice and information. Truly it is an example of how “We do not stand alone”.

At the last meeting I attended, it got me thinking. How much do we appreciate the leaders within our groups. This club is a club for fun. Some of the leaders have volunteered to take time out of their fun to enhance the fun of others and make them better. There are a lot of behind the curtain tasks that the various leaders have to complete to keep their clubs running and growing.

So my question for you the member is: have you stopped to think about how much the different leaders do for you in this fan club? From the Department Chiefs to the Executive Officer all the way up to the Commanding Officer. The many different meetings, assembling agendas, gathering orders, rank advancements and awards. Ask one of your leaders how much time they put into the local chapter and you will get a variety of answers. Something they do all for the benefit of the members to help them enjoy Star Trek.

So what can you as a member do to show your appreciation for all of the hard work put into the club? The simplest thing to do is to tell your leaders “Thank You”. I’m sure that just a simple acknowledgement of their efforts will help show them that their efforts are appreciated. Another thing that you can do as a member is offer to help with something. When many people contribute to the club, they get a sense of pride in building something that everyone can have fun with. You don’t have to volunteer to be a department head (however I’m certain that would be greatly appreciated) but just helping with little things can go a long way in making the club run smoother. Volunteer to contact someone, be willing to welcome a new recruit into the club or help put together a club flyer is just a small number of opportunities that a member can take to assist. Plus it will help everyone (including the leaders) to have some Star Trek fun.

Let’s see what’s out there and let’s help each other get there.

Help for a Seventh Fleet member

Rest in Peace Tristan.  We miss you.
Rest in Peace Tristan. We miss you.

Our motto in the Seventh Fleet is “We Do Not Stand Alone”.  In times of need we rally together to help out when we can.  A call is being sent out now for such a need.  As most of you know, Lt. Commander Tristan Vilhauer of the USS Valkyrie passed away suddenly last month due to complications with his liver. He was only in his twenties and did not expect to have to worry about funeral expenses.  The hospital will not release the body of our friend until the cost of $1500 can be covered.  Captain Charles Corr has set up an account at Wells Fargo to help raise funds to cover the costs.  If you can help out you can go to any Wells Fargo bank and make a donation.  If you would like the account number, please email Info@SeventhFleet.org and we can send it to you.  Thank you for all that you can do.

Congratulations to Captain Roger Taylor

Personnel_newsLog Entry: Stardate 67031.5, Rear Admiral Carl Stark recording. The members of the Seventh Fleet Council gathered together to discuss what will be happening with the Seventh Fleet for the next three months and beyond.  One of the many discussions that we had tonight was the advancement of Commander Roger Taylor to the rank of Captain.  We are proud to announce that this proposal was accepted and Captain Taylor was awarded his rank.  This also means that the chapter-in-training, PCU Essex, will now become a fully active chapter, the USS Essex.  The details on the launch ceremony will be announced soon.  Well done Captain Taylor and well done to the crew of the USS Essex.  Tally Ho

What is your challenge for 2014

From_AdmiralLog Entry: Stardate 67022.2 Rear Admiral Carl Stark recording Last month at our Seventh Fleet Admiral’s Banquet, a lot of our members talked about the challenges they would be facing in 2014.  For myself, I am returning to school with Western Governors University.  I know that some of you are already on the road to losing weight (good job) and a lot of you want to gain a Command Grade rank (Lt. Commander or Commander).  So the question I would like to ask is, what is your challenge for 2014?  How do you plan to accomplish this challenge?  What help can we provide to get you past this challenge?  I’d love to hear your ideas.
