It’s technically a few hours before the term formally starts, but Rob said he didn’t mind if we posted some stuff a little early.

For those of you who do not know, the first thing Presidents do when their term starts is select a new cabinet. The cabinet is the set of people who volunteer to do OOC work for the club, who report to the President. People from the previous term’s cabinet continue in their roles until the President selects new people. Fleet Commanders and Department Directors are considered part of the cabinet. Those would be these positions specifically:

  • All Fleet Commanders (so Foremost, Pioneer, Meridian and Black Fleet commanders)
  • Academy Commandant
  • Personnel Director
  • Gamemaster Director
  • Engineering Director

Executive Assistants are not part of the cabinet; they remain appointed even after terms change over. TECH is not part of the cabinet either.

Steve and I are now accepting cabinet applications. We would like everyone who is interested in helping out the club to please apply, even if you already have a cabinet role that you wish to keep right now. As we said in our campaign posts, we’re offering two different ways for people to apply:

  1. Please indicate which position(s) you would like to serve in, and how you meet the requirements for that position if that position has requirements outlined in the bylaw that governs it. Also please present briefly some sort of plan for what you would like to do for the term.

  2. Alternatively, please just tell us that you’d like to help out around here, and indicate whatever particular talents you may or may not bring to the table. We will figure out what to do with you, regardless of whether it’s in the cabinet today or not.

Regardless of which path you choose, please send your application via email to Yes, that’s my own email address; there’s apparently some sort of problem with the mail forwards, so I’d like you to email me directly. I will confirm receipt of your application with a brief reply, and then reach out to you again later this week to discuss it.

We will keep applications open until Sunday, August 7, as we’d like to be able to get the cabinet appointed on Monday, August 8.


Just FYI, we’re on track to finalize the cabinet on Monday. You still have a few hours to apply if you’re interested.

I think I’m going to hold off on the first “re-alignment” post (I think I might get a new name for that; the whole “re” thing was a kinda last minute campaign gimmick) until after the cabinet is finalized. Explaining how we came up with it would make a good practical lesson.


Just another note here. We had a few last minute applicants, so the final down-selection and communication loop is happening later in the process than it typically does for a couple of positions. I don’t want a post in Command to be the first time someone learns that they did or didn’t get a cabinet spot, so I’ve delayed posting the edict slightly.

I hope this does not cause any inconvenience.
