This update contains a few different topics related to the Operations Department, mostly related to staffing opportunities. As a sort of preamble, I wanted to start with an observation I made a few days ago as I thought about the purpose of this department, as it exists at the intersection of the majority of the other departments' responsibilities, while also having duties of its own. In short, the Operations Department exists to help the membership navigate between the fleet's various offerings through mentorship, ranging from the New Member team, to mentoring Task Force leadership, to coordinating the established roleplaying groups (a.k.a. games, sims, writing groups, and a whole bunch of other jargon depending on your perspective). If you're not sure where to send your question, always feel free to approach your Task Force staff or any member of the New Member team (even if you're not a "new" member), as that's what we're all here for!
