Welcome to the website of the West Central Missouri Regional Lodge #50, Chapter 3, Fraternal Order of Police. Our Chapter represents deputies of the Jackson County, Missouri Sheriff. The FOP is law enforcement officers striving to improve their profession by improving working conditions, wages and benefits, and by monitoring legislation affecting law enforcement on the local, state, and national levels of government.
Hello Brothers and Sister,
I hope this correspondence finds you all in good health and good spirits. This is a notification that the annual Chapter 3, Board Elections will be taking place at the general membership meeting on Thursday, February 21st, 2014. A brief explanation of what is necessary and how the elections work is outlined here. For consideration and / or nomination to the Chapter 3 Board, a member must be dues paying and in good standing with the Lodge. The member nominated must have attended, at a minimum, four general membership meetings the previous calendar year. The member must be in overall good standing with the Sheriff’s Office (meaning that they are not currently suspended or on a work agreement) and thus able to represent the membership at the Office. The qualities that are necessary of the individual member, and which should be considered prior to accepting any nomination or appointment, include the following. The member should be aware that the appointment comes with a fairly significant time commitment. The member needs to be available on a call out situation, should the need arise, to represent a member at any point in time. The members should also be aware that he or she will be required to attend the board meetings, held on the first Thursday of the month, the general membership meetings held on the third Thursday of the month, and being in attendance for the Regional Lodge meetings held on the second Wednesday of the month at Lodge #50. There is also a necessity that any new board members shall be required to attend stewardship training, provided at by Lodge #50 in the near future. It should go without saying, but the member accepting the appointment should also have a strong knowledge of the contract and the ability to communicate, with out bias, regarding the representation of the membership. Nominations will come from all members of Chapter 3, and taken from the floor. If a member is nominated and unable or unwilling to fulfill the oath of office and the responsibilities that come with it, he or she can simply state that at that time and their wishes will recorded in the minutes and they will be removed for consideration at that time. If at any point, multiple members are nominated for the same position, a ballot vote will be cast at that time. The vote will be tallied prior to meeting adjourning and the membership will be made aware of the outcome prior to leaving that night. Their are six positions on the board, Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer / Secretary, and three “executive Stewards”. All of the aforementioned positions will be subject to vote at the meeting.
We look forward to seeing you all there to exercise your rights to representation.
