    Hello New Zealand!

    I've had the opportunity to speak to dStyler who had originally contacted me about starting this Regiment. Real life has him occupied at the moment and he is unable to step up and take on the roll of Regiment Commanding Officer.

    Is there someone else that is willing to come forward? We can work with you to teach you what you need to know.

    Please send me a message if you are interested or tag me here so we can get you guys moving forward!

    I am interesting taking the role of RCO, but I would like to know what requirements there are to be a RCO (if any) and what it involves before I commit myself to it.

    Thank you for offering to step up, Camjay!

    According to our Mantle, the position of RCO is described as follows:

    For your reference, the RXO and RMO are described as follows:

    Basically, you are the link between your members and 405th Division and you organize all events for your Regiment (or at least task your other staff members with duties pertaining to events etc.)

    We generally have monthly meetings via Google Hangouts between Division and the RCO's (or RXO/RMO if the RCO is unavailable) and it would be your responsibility to pass along any information from those meetings to your membership. As well, you would be responsible for keeping your membership apprised of any changes to procedures that come from Division and making sure that your Regiment follows those procedures.

    Basically, you do the stuff so that events run without a hitch, your membership has all of their questions answered and everyone can have fun.

    It's as time consuming as you want it to be. Certainly there is a minimal amount that should be expected by your membership that allows you to keep apprised of what's happening, keep Division updated with what is happening in your area, and keeps your membership happily attending events and in the loop. Certainly there will be times when real life intervenes and that is understandable, however, you are expected to keep your membership and Division in the loop and, if necessary, have your RXO or RMO attend monthly meetings etc. on your behalf should it be for an extended amount of time.

    You will have access to an email address just for your Regiment which you will use for communication with event organizers etc.

    You will also be in charge (unless you task another staff member with this) to run both the Facebook Group and Page for your Regiment. The Page is the public facing page where you can attract new members and show off what your Regiment has been up to as well as share what other Regiments have done or what has been posted to the main 405th page. The Group is the members only area that you can use to remind your members when they need to look at something on the forum. It is not intended as a place to organize events nor should it be the main source of communication. It is a secondary source to this forum. For example, if there was a big event coming up in your area, you would post to the members only group to let everyone know to check out the forum and give them a link to the right thread so they can quickly head over.

    In short, it's not all that complicated but really is a very important role to fill. Your members will depend on you to be the "one that knows".

    Sound like something you'd like to do?

    I'll consider it FANGS, I am a 17yr old high school student so I have to think carefully about taking this on.

    Ahhh....yes....we do need you to be 18 to hold that position. Most definitely school comes first and this would be a big task to take on for you in that regard. Not because of your age, but because school is so much more demanding of your time outside of school than work generally is.

    That's a shame, FANGS is there any other way I can help get NZ running?

    There will be lots and lots for you to do. Don't fret!

    I think it would be helpful to get conversations here started - are there any local conventions coming up? Perhaps we can start figuring out where people are located and plan a casual meet up or armor build parties?

    FANGS I'm going to assume that most members in NZ are in the North Island. I'll create a thread in the NZ forum and ask where everyone is. Is there anywhere else I should post and ask?

    I honestly don't know where everyone is located but certainly starting that conversation here would help get the ball rolling. If you want to draft up a post, we can also push it to the main 405th to get people to head over here. It'll take time to get people involved but keep talking! If they see activity, there will be a reason for them to stay!

    FANGS I'll get a draft ready as soon as possible then.
