X.O. - Executive Officer: As the XO you are the second-in-command of all that is AK. As such your attitude, opinions and personality MUST reflect positively on the image of the ARMORED KNIGHTS. As the XO you have broad authorities and responsibilities over all -AK- aspects, specific responsibilities are outlined below.
1. Authority - You have the authority to do as you see fit in all CLAN aspects as they relate to the Armored Knights Governing Documents. Specific areas where CO approval/notification is required are as follows:
A. CLAN GOALS - Except as stated in other documents, CLAN GOALS and DIRECTION are dictated by the CO and FOUNDERS. As the XO you will now be a part of those discussions. You can make suggestions and/or bring ideas/suggestions to the CO for discussion, but only the CO can make hard changes to CLAN doctrine.
B. DISMISSALS - All dismissals from the CLAN for other than INACTIVITY require XO approval and CO notification.
3. Personnel - As the XO you have numerous personnel in the CHAIN OF COMMAND in order to ensure the smooth operation of the CLAN. Task your officers as needed, then let them work. I expect you to not only utilize these personnel, but to also hold them accountable for carrying out their expected duties.
As the XO you have fairly wide sweeping authority over the KNIGHTs. Except as otherwise noted you are able to make decisions as you see fit. By using our Governing Documents and doing what’s best for the CLAN and its image, I trust that you can and will make the right call. If any specific issue is not covered by documentation, then make the decision you think best. Making the hard call is part of the job and as long as your reasoning is sound, your decision will be the same. And of course I am always available and open for discussions.
