Subj: ANNOUNCEMENT OF NEW DIVISION LEADERSHIP - 07/16

2. The Division Leader is a more experienced student serving as the senior student leader within AUP nationwide, exercising responsibility, accountability, and authority for AUP's overall student activities while supervising subordinate personnel. The Division Leader is appointed, relieved by, and reports to, the leader of the national AUP Operations staff.

3. Ms. Mazzola is a senior at Virginia Tech studying Political Science with a concentration in National Security. Her goal is to commission active duty in the USCG and then either attend law school or work on Capitol Hill. She has been part of AUP since her freshman year when the program got restarted at Tech. She recognizes the benefits of the program and the potential that it has to be even better.

4. Her e-mail address is katiem6@vt.edu. Please contact her with any ideas you may have or if you need anything, but please consult your chain of command first.

5. Ms. Mazzola’s leadership philosophy is as follows:

  1. Communication: Communication is essential to an effective organization. Without communication the organization will fall apart. Students must communicate up and down the chain of command in order for AUP to be successful.

  2. Community: A sense of community will foster an environment where members feel a sense of ownership and unity. This enables flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances and challenges presented throughout the year.

  3. Empowering: Empowering individuals will give them the opportunity to take ownership of actions and grow as a leader. Students will gain greater insight and understanding with the experiences. This strengthens our ability to communicate and adapt to challenges.

6. Ms. Mazzola’s goals for the year are to:

  1. Create opportunities for students to lead,

  2. Have members volunteer in their community through the Auxiliary,

  3. Take every opportunity to learn, and

  4. Have all members complete requirements to be at Senior Status.

LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT GUIDE (LMG) - 03/16

To: ALAUP

From: DIR-S

Subj: LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT GUIDE (LMG) - 03/16

1. The AUP Leadership and Management Guide (LMG) is provided to integrate policy from the Auxiliary Manual and the Auxiliary Operations Manual for personnel participating in or otherwise interacting with the program for AUP operations and administration.

2. Download the Leadership and Management Guide here.

3. This Leadership and Management Guide (LMG) replaces the old Leadership and Management Interim Guidance (LMIG) from September 2013.  It is provided to integrate policy from the Auxiliary Manual and the Auxiliary Operations Manual for personnel participating in or otherwise interacting with the program for AUP operations and administration.  District Commodores and Directors of Auxiliary have already been told by CG-BSX at NTRAIN to treat this document as if promulgated.

4. Unit Officers and Unit Leaders will ensure that their AUP unit complies with all provisions, effective immediately.  In accordance with their role as local program managers for AUP, Unit Officers will share this information with their sponsoring FC or DCDR, who we expect will also receive this information from their elected COL now that it has been distributed.

5. The LMG, Chapter 1, Section B specifies that all AUP units must be either a flotilla or flotilla detachment as defined by the Auxiliary Manual, Chapter 4. Because this is a new requirement, AUP units that existed prior to 1 February 2016 will have until 1 January 2017 to obtain recognition from their district and then organize as a detachment or separate flotilla in accordance with the AUXMAN.
