Regional Directors are appointed by the National Chairman to serve for a period of one or more years. They may be reappointed. There will be at least one Regional Director for each NSCC Region.

Regional Directors are accountable for the proper performance of duties and must, prior to appointment; indicate their willingness and commitment to fully support the Cadet programs.

Regional Directors report to the designation NHQ Representative, but when appropriate, have access to the National Chairman via the Executive Director. This establishes the Chain of Command within each Regional Director's region and NHQ Representatives' area.

Regional Directors within a region, serve as a facilitator responsible for coordinating region-wide programs such as training, flagships, inspections, ORI, etc.


Regional Directors are responsible for helping to ensure the success of unit commanding officers through oversight of training and administrative functions of assigned units, and only for those units. They have the authority to direct actions as may be necessary to meet this responsibility keeping the President/Committee Chairman of the sponsoring NLUS Council, or other sponsoring organizations informed.

  • Develop, as practicable, combined unit-training programs and/or competitions to enhance unit training, develop a "regional" concept of organization and cooperation, and fully use available training expertise and resources.

  • Assist NHQ Representatives in identifying and nominating to NHQ, for approval and appointment, individuals to serve as Commanding Officers of assigned units.

  • Keep sponsoring Councils, or other sponsoring organizations, apprised of the "tenure status" of unit Commanding Officers, and the need for positive support of the tenure concept.

  • Establish regional awards to recognize unit/individual achievement.

  • Recommend the disestablishment of any NSCC/NLCC unit, or transfer of unit sponsorship, when considered in the best interests of the Corps and the Navy League.
