Additional numbers of Medals of Communication may earn one of the following upgrades:

Gold Oak Cluster (goc) In sixth month of activity MoC-goc
Platinum Oak Cluster (poc) In ninth month of activity MoC-poc
Diamond Oak Cluster (doc) In twelfth month of activity MoC-doc

The system of awarding those upgrades is simple. Assume that the members mentioned here are very active in terms of communication every month. In the first two months of activity, members are rewarded with the Bronze Oak Clusters. In the third month they are awarded the Silver Oak Cluster instead of a Bronze Oak Cluster. In the fourth and fifth month they are awarded yet again with Bronze Oak Clusters and in the sixth month, they shall gain a Gold Oak Cluster. This process continues until the reach Diamond Oak Cluster and then starts once again from the beginning. Therefore, members active throughout all months in a year should receive eight Bronze Oak Clusters and one of Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond Oak Clusters. This is not a continuous process, so if a member is somehow not active in a few months, he shall not be penalized and when he returns he will continue his progress in this “queue” as if nothing has happened.

Authority: This medal can be awarded by the Communications Officer.
