Geographic Area Structure of A.P.S.L
The Australian Preppers Survival League (A.P.S.L) geographic areas of operations, tie in with current Australian Government States, Territories, Municipalities and Wards geographic areas as defined by their respective governments. This is an explanation of the leagues area structure:
Family Unit or Individuals

This is a starting point for new leadership in the league. A new leading member can either be an individual or part of a family unit. Individuals are able to join in with family units or with other individuals. The family unit is led by leader(s). The leader is appointed within the family unit by voting or agreement. Family units can have multiple leaders, and individuals can be promoted to leader if they are senior to other individuals in their neighbourhood area and appointed by voting/agreement. Corporals can be appointed by Sergeants in their neighbourhood and are able to lead extended family units or a small group of individuals in the neighbourhood.
