Vice Regional Coordinator
Commodore Scott Peter
I assist the RC in the day to day running and administration of Region 20, as well as deputise when the RC is unavailable or on holiday. The VRC’s other duties include: responsibility for the Regional Summit, promoting membership of and assisting the OICs of the SFI fringe groups SFMC, Chaplaincy and STARFLEET Medical, to generally promote and represent Region 20 to members and non-members alike and take on any tasks or responsibilities assigned to me by the RC. As with all members of the Regional Team, I stand ready to assist members with any questions or queries they may have. LLAP
Rear Admiral Richard Sams
My main job as Regional Coordinator is to represent Region 20 on the Fleet Admiralty Board, ensuring that our voice is heard amongst the other 17 regions.
I also get the really cool job of recognising the hard work of members of the Region and presenting awards and promotions.
I have a great team working with me to support the 12 chapters that currently make up Region 20.
Vice Regional Coordinator's Chief of Staff
Captain Martin Strang
I was the former CMO of the USS Alba, before taking assignment on the Space Station Independent, where I started as XO.
I am also the VRC Chief of Staff and a part of the Region 20 office of the Assistant Surgeon General, in the role of Transplant Leader.
My role in STARLFEET is primarily running the space station as its CO, and in between times acting as the VRC CoS where I will be getting involved in Region 20 Admiralty board meetings and assisting the VRC with communications across the region.
As Transplant Leader, I am a strong advocate in promoting anything that has to do with organ donation and advances in transplant medicine, myself being a kidney and pancreas recipient in July 2012.
In my spare time(!) I am training for the British Transplant Games, where I am doing archery and bowling.
Regional Coordinator's Chief of Staff
Lieutenant Junior Grade Nat Lively
Alongside my service as Chief Security Officer for the USS Raven, my duties as the RC's Chief of Staff vary. From acting as Secretary to the Regional AB and EC to providing advice to the RC as and when he needs it. This all means my job is an exciting one, as it's ever changing. As a new (and young) member of STARFLEET, it's an honour to have been appointed for such a role, and although there is alot to learn, I look forward to working with the region and its members.
Chief of Regional Awards
Commander Kevin McNeillie
The name's McNeillie, CMDR Kevin McNeillie! My duty is to hunt down the best of region 20, encouraging the various ships in the region to tell me who they think is the best! This information is then fed through the computer, and a group of special agents from the across the region look at the data and decide who deserves to be the best of the best! This decision is then sent on to the Regional Coordinator for announcement!
There can only be one, so... who is the best of the best?
Regional Chief of Cadet Support
Lieutenant Commander James Saunders
I serve on board the Space Station Independent as the XO, also known as the First Officer, standing in for our CO as and when required. I currently oversee cadet development in our chapter, where I guide our younger members through Starfleet Academy.
My role as the Regional Chief of Cadet Support is a new position, created to offer support to the chapters which have cadet members. This role will evolve over time and will offer its own challenges, and I look forward to taking them on.
Regional Chief of Retention & Membership
Captain Tony Burr
Over the years, Region 20 has evolved into a diverse, like minded community, who subscribe to the ideals in the association’s membership handbook.
We have both correspondence and meeting chapters dotted around the UK & Eire, each under the chairmanship of a captain, each resonating with their own unique style of making it so... Subscribe for about a pound a month, paid annually, membership gives access to the fan association's infrastructure and its Academy.
Region 20's community holds close Roddenberry's inspired vision of the future, I see my task as expanding that like-minded community in such a way that it's not a burden to pay!
Chief of Computer Operations
Captain Erica Smith
My job is to build, rebuild and maintain the lovely red-shirt filled website you're looking at! I also work as an admin for the region's Facebook presence, post on the regional Twitter feed, and maintain our mailing lists. When I'm not doing any of those jobs, I also make fun things like logos and social media banner images for anyone in the region who needs them, helping to make us easily recognisable. I'm officially a part of the regional co-ordinator's team, but I'm happy to help any member of the region!
Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.
