All positions are open and need to be filled. Please Contact Larry D. McParland at email@example.com to express interest in these positions. Please be aware, ANY position should be readily handed over to more qualified people as they join the group. Many are not qualified for this level of leadership. I'm a Marine, we use the resources we have available and hope and pray that more come along.
As our group gets bigger we will break down to smaller groups. It will not matter if you are civilian, former military, or military everyone can help out.
My first goal is to setup state level organization.
State Leadership will be broken down as below:
State CO -------------------- Larry D. McParland
State XO -------------------- Bill Goodwin
State Supply --------------- David Gagin
State Intel ------------------ Liz AKA Yellowbird
State Transport ------------ Open
State Communications – Open
State Recruiting ---------- Open
State Security ------------- Open
Let’s define these positions.
This role is to communicate with national leadership and insure that their state is working towards fielding the numbers set by national leadership based on population, travel concerns and logistical considerations. The CO will communicate with the other state leaders what the goals are and help those other leaders work towards achieving those goals. Accountability, assigning leaders, replacing leaders, etc.
XO is the CO’s right hand. He/She is responsible for insuring that the CO’s orders are being worked. He helps organize the state and handles much of the clerical responsibilities of the CO
Get the word out EVERYWHERE in North Carolina. The main, and most important job, of the "PR" position is to get as many bodies to show up in D.C. as humanly possible. Without the numbers needed for success, all the travel and security plans becomes a moot point
The PR person becomes one of the most critical positions in any organization like OAS. And no matter whoever the PR person is, they must stick to the words already spoken by Col. Riley. Deviating from the 'script' could cause trouble, so we should all stick to the bullet points that may already exist on the PFA and OAS sites
Supply’s role is to find resources, determine what resources are needed and to communicate with team leaders on what they will need and help them find places to acquire said resources. Examples. We will need Tents, water, food, camping locations. Supply at a state level is not solely responsible for acquiring these things but in assisting Company level people find those resources at a local level.
Intel position is to find legal issues and help team leaders overcome those issues. Regulatory requirements. Look for state events that are good places for team leaders to go and recruit. Work on flyer's to hand out to churches, VFW, American Legion etc and develop the contacts to disperse out to state leaders.
Organizing mass transport for the state. Car Pools, Bus rentals, fuel donations.
Setting up call trees. Building contact info lists for state leadership and being in charge of dispersing info from State CO and National Communication Director down to Company level. Setting up Alternative Communication abilities at a state level. Radio Channels, Rally Points etc
Recruiting Members falls on the individual companies, but State level recruits the recruiters. Finds Company CO, Vets them, talks and interviews them, then passes recommendations on to State Leadership. Once Company level Co's are in place, then helping them recruit members and assigning new people to the appropriate teams. Highly recommended that this leader in particular, have a “War Room” with a state map up on the Wall with Pins labeled with Company CO pinned. Will help when assigning new members to the correct teams for their area.
This position is multi-faceted. Making sure our teams maintain security will have to be left to each group based on each company’s skill level. State level, well, would be will be impossible to maintain. BUT making sure each team is educated on security is a good thing. I think setting up a state level security team that roams throughout the rally maintaining order might be called for. A team going from company to company should not be ruled out, but will be difficult and costly, both fuel, man power and time wise. I think considering security badges for all Phase 2 people should be considered, if resources allow.
