Timeline

Each month there are two classes to promote patronage officers to full member.

These classes pass on the 15th and last day of each month.

On the 5th and 20th of each month IG should send out NUMAS (Name, Uniform , Forum Username, Avatar, Signature) Letters in-game to all Society members listing each applicant by name and which inspections are needed. Once the applicant has met all required inspections and NUMAS is added next to the patronage officers name they will be eligible for vote. Often the captains up for patronage will be numerous enough it is easier to send a separate in-game mail on how to update Forum Username. After each letter is sent, note it in the Inspector General Log Book.

Early Class

  • Vote Opens 10th
  • Results Announced 15th

Late Class

  • Vote opens 25th
  • Results announced 30th
