On 26 April 2014 the Department of the Chesapeake, in its annual encampment, elected Colonel Robert Poolock as its Commanding Officer for 2014-2015.
The Department encampment also voted to purchase a group insurance policy through the NRA, which will provide coverage to both Department and Camp events. The Department of the Chesapeake will conclude the arrangements with the NRA and pay the fee's for the first year of the insurance plan. Beginning with the Dues being submitted for 2015 the Department Per-Capita will be raised from $6 to $10, with the additional $4 being used to pay the cost of continuing the insurance in future years.
The Dept. of the Chesapeake adheres to the SUVCW National Policy on Electronic Communications
