If the later is true. Will SM show up in the Area Managers Layer?
No. If they are approved, they will be "upgraded" to access to the entire state.

As far as I know, it's by recommendation right now. If an editor feels qualified, they request it via their local champ or RC. But I think it might become/move towards an editor being nominated and asked if they would like the title by a local champ.
Either way, one or more champs will have to nominate a local editor. They will have to convince the RC that the mentioned editor is qualified via examples and personal experiences.
If you feel as though your ready to become an SM, then send Alan a PM and request to be on the SM list. I'm sure he will gladly select you as an SM once the program is given the green light.
