    Default officers

    Do any of you guys have officer in your explorers post like chiefs, captains or officer like that? If so what do you do as an officer? I mean as an explorer are you an officer.

    My post had upwards of 20 members and we had 2 lieutenants, an Assistant Chief, and a Chief. The remaining explorers who didn't hold officer positions were broken into two companies based on experience (we wanted it to be relatively equal). The two lieutenants were in charge of each of their companies, and made sure trainings went smoothly, with everyone participating and paying attention. They also took attendance every training and figured out where explorers were if they didn't show up. They also made sure explorers showed up for fundraisers/etc.

    I was the Assistant Chief and I planned and put together trainings for the explorers, or assigned trainings for other explorers to teach, which I would oversee. I would also, in light of the "chain of command" relay comments/questions/messages between the companies and the explorer chief. Along with that, I would have a major part in public relations (along with explorer chief) including contacting local media of our events, and progress in our trainings, and I ran the explorer post Facebook page.

    The explorer Chief was the one who would directly report to our explorer advisors and Department Chief about any news/problems/progress within the post. He was also the one that would head the explorer meetings and hold individual conferences with explorers to talk about things that they should improve and things they are doing good with.

    This setup worked GREAT for our explorer post and made everything run smoothly!

    No officers, just the senior man who has the same duty as the senior man in any department. Responsible for showing the new juniors the ropes and the way things work.
