of Officer Duties
following information is provided to assist Detachments in the selection
of officers, assisting members in determining their interest and
capability in an office, and to provide an outline of possible job
functions that can be carried out by each officer what the Board of
Trustees and members should expect from the incumbents of each office.
note that there are some duties that are specifically required for each
officer. However, there are
also some functions that may be optional or delegated based on
individual capabilities. Keeping
in mind the section on Functions and Objectives of the Detachment,
some leadership requirements are to be determined by the Detachment in
consideration of plans and capabilities.
general comment can be made regarding all Detachment offices.
First, an interest and willingness to serve is a major factor for
consideration of any office. Second,
every office is important and will require time, effort, and commitment
to minimally meet the needs of the Detachment.
Members should consider the time and commitment required when
deciding whether to accept an officers position - factors of work,
family life, and other outside pressures have to be accounted for before
a commitment can really be made.
officer candidates will not generally possess all of the
characteristics, traits and skills that are useful to a particular
office. The listing that
follows describes attributes that may be desirable. Each candidate, and each Detachment should decide those
talents that are of importance to the genre of the Detachment, and which
characteristics can be acquired through training/education.
