Promotions in UFS
In order to be considered for a Promotion, you MUST be a registered member on the UFS Database. Upon submission of a members promotion this will be check and those nominated for a promotion who do now have an account will be rejected without hesitation. As a organisation, UFS recognizes the contributions from its members, they are a way of thanking members for their hard work and the level of effort but into the group. The concept of promotions is very simple, you get out of UFS what you put in. Whenever and however you participate in UFS in any capacity, you will be rewarded with a promotion in due time. Up until the rank of Commander, promotions are placed in the hands of the chapter Commanding Officer. Once you reach the rank of Commander, Promotions are taken out of the hands of COs and given to UFS Command. Here, your efforts in UFS are really rewarded. In some cases, a certain position may come with a promotion, this is done as some positions require a certain level of authority in order for them to carry our their duties. Positions which come with a promotion include Joint Chiefs of Staff, Sector Commanders and Chapter Commanding Officers. After 6 months, these promotions become permanent.
Awards in UFS
Along with promotions, Awards are another way of rewarding a member for the work they put in. These awards can range from Certificates, Commendations, Ribbons and Plaques. Each Chapter within UFS is encouraged to use the UFS Awards Program to set up guidlines as to how to actually awards them. In UFS we have 3 levels of awards, Chapter Level (Awarded by COs), Sector Level (Awarded by Sector Commanders) and Fleet Level (Awarded by the Commander-in-Chief).
