Each month, the Academy staff compiles the statistics about our recruiting and training for the fleet’s informational purposes. Let’s take a look at how we did in July.
This first graph shows the number of applications we received each month this year. The month of July brought us the largest number of applications so far this year with fourteen new applications coming in. With most of the applications coming later in the month, this new interest in our group could be attributed to the release of the new Star Trek movie.
The following chart shows how members found us, according to their application:
This final graph shows how many people graduated from the Academy during the month of July. While we had fourteen new applications only two graduated during July. This is due to the fact that the vast majority of July’s applicants began training during the last week of the month. Their actual graduation dates were in August.
New recruits are the lifeblood of our community. When our application rate slows, it makes it hard to keep our ships fully crewed, not to mention impossible to grow. So if you’d like to help us recruit more members and grow our fleet, you can join the Publicity Team using this form.
