|There are several types of projects that a Jurassic crew member can be part of. Some of these projects are long term and some are short term. Long term projects are projects that last for an indefinite period of time. An example of a long term project would be for someone to handle the Jurassic stampede or pen pal service. These are projects that will continue as long as we have a project leader. And the project leader may change from time to time when one resigns and another is chosen to take their place.
A short term project is one that will conclude within a short amount of time (a few days or weeks or even a few months). There is definitely an end to a short term project. An example of a short term project would be designing blueprints for the ship, or any project that has a stated conclusion.
In either of these categories (long term or short term) are projects that can be classified as Individual Projects, Division Projects, and Ship Projects. An Individual Project is one that can be done by one person from start to finish. A Division Project is one that can be done by one or more crew members within a particular division. Ship Projects are projects that involve as many people as want to be involved within the ship.
If you are interested in working on a project or becoming a project leader, there are a few things you should know. . .
- You must have your project approved by your Division Chief (if it is a Division Project), or by the Command Staff (CO and XO) if an individual or ship project.
- There are a few long term projects the JURASSIC would like to be involved with. Other then these, if you can think of a project you would like to lead, you must submit a written proposal to either your DC (for division projects) or the CO or XO (for any other type). The project proposal does not need to be long. Put your name, address, phone number, and SCC# on the top of the page, and a brief description of the project along with an estimated completion time. Also, state briefly why this would be a good project for the JURASSIC to be associated with. All this information should be no more then a page in length for most projects. Of course if you want to give a more detailed description that is fine. Also, please enclose a self-addressed stamped envelope with your proposal, so we can contact you to let you know if the project is approved or not.
- You must be a member of the JURASSIC to be a project leader.
- You must be at least 18 years of age to be a project leader for a long term project whether a Division Project or Ship Project.
- There is no minimum age for individual projects (but they must be approved by the CO and XO before you begin).
- You must make a written report to the Second Officer (or First Officer if there is no Second Officer) at least once a month.
