    25. 25. Auxiliary Chain of Leadership January 28, 2010 Coast Guard and Auxiliary Organizational Structure Auxiliary National Staff District Commodore  DCOS  District Staff Officers District Captain Division Commander  VCDR  Division Staff Officers Flotilla Commander  VFC  Flotilla Staff Officers Members
    26. 26. Understanding the Chain of Leadership <ul><li>It is important to understand the Chain of Leadership so that you do not circumvent established procedures. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Locate yourself in the diagram; you may communicate with the person immediately to your left, right, top, or bottom. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Auxiliarists who serve in different assignments cannot abuse the position or responsibilities of one assigned duty to “pull rank” on someone they work with in another assigned duty. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Commanders” are responsible for the entire unit, but that “Vice Commanders” are responsible for the staff. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The District Commodore is responsible for the entire District, while the District Chief of Staff (DCOS) is responsible for the District staff. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>All Auxiliarists, from the newest member up to the National Commodore, are members of a Flotilla. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This means that all Auxiliarists have a Flotilla Commander, Vice Commander, Staff Officers, and Flotilla operations to work with and participate in. </li></ul></ul></ul>January 28, 2010 Coast Guard and Auxiliary Organizational Structure
    27. 27.

    28. 28. WHAT DOES EACH STAFF OFFICER ACTUALLY DO? January 28, 2010 Coast Guard and Auxiliary Organizational Structure
    29. 29. Centrality of the Flotilla <ul><li>The Auxiliary’s operations take place at the Flotilla, local unit, level. Divisions covering a dense geographic area will often coordinate multi-Flotilla operations. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>All Auxiliarists are members of a Flotilla because the Flotilla is also critical for personnel management, recruiting, training, and communications. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flotillas are designated in two ways: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Numerically, DDD-VV-FF, whereas DDD is the District Number, VV is the Division number, and FF is the Flotilla number. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Flotilla “054-25-12” would be Flotilla 12 in Division 25 in District 054 (meaning “District Five, Southern Region”), and will often be referred to as “Flotilla 25-12”. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Flotilla 054-06-07 will often be called “Flotilla 67.” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Flotillas are also designated by geography; the Flotillas described above are, for example, “Flotilla 054-25-12, Arlington | Northern Virginia” and “Flotilla 054-06-07, Williamsburg VA” respectively. </li></ul></ul></ul>January 28, 2010 Coast Guard and Auxiliary Organizational Structure
    30. 30. WHICH FLOTILLA ARE YOU IN; WHAT AOR DOES IT SERVE? <ul><li>Flotilla’s do not have a rigid AOR, and an Auxiliarist is not required to join the closest Flotilla, but most Flotillas do concentrate on a single area or community that becomes the informal AOR. </li></ul>January 28, 2010 Coast Guard and Auxiliary Organizational Structure
    31. 31. ARE CORE VALUES AND THE ORGANIZATION CONNECTED? <ul><li>Honor – Respect – Devotion to Duty </li></ul>January 28, 2010 Coast Guard and Auxiliary Organizational Structure
