Senior Officers are the people that take charge of ensuring our processes and policies are executed by all members of the guild, including officers, raid leads, and class leads. They are the first line of response when issues arise and should be given complete autonomy in aligning other members with the GMâ€™s vision, the guildsâ€™ goals, and the organizationâ€™s reputation. They can present suggestions for changes to policy for review to the CGMâ€™s or AGMâ€™s and GMâ€™s, but must accept the decisions of their seniors and help adoption of those decisions by other leaders and members. However, SOâ€™s have considerable weight in decisions whenever they present them and often CGMâ€™s or AGMâ€™s and GMâ€™s take their stance to heart.
A Senior Officer can request to step down from their posts should their real life get too busy or they choose to break from gaming and they feel they cannot properly perform the Senior Officer functions. This should be done in a post in writing in the chapterâ€™s leader, privately. Also note that Senior Officers can demoted if a GM or AGM feels they are not performing their duties as stated above and we expect them to have thick skin if that happens, but it is the duty of the GM to give the SO three warnings (all documented with a Founder as well) before a demotion is considered.
It is recommended to have a minimum of TWO Senior Officers in any chapter, and no more than FIVE the total of which should always be an odd number.
Appointed by:Â All GMâ€™s, CGMâ€™s or AGMâ€™s, and Founders by vote.
Service Requirement:Â Â A minimum of ONE YEAR as OfficerÂ and a deep understanding of our structure and ranks.
