Note: NO Promotion is just given for meeting the time requirements. Promotions must be earned by fulfilling all the responsibilities of each rank. Promotions are not asked for; promotions are earned. Because you have been in your position for a long time does not guarantee you a promotion. If you have completed these requirements, please speak with a leader. If you are not maintaining the requirements of your position please understand you are hurting your section, the community, and your friends. If this happens you will be relieved of your leadership position. It isn’t personal. We can’t have inactive or ineffective leaders hold back what our members need.
