GizmoGuy411 has returned returned from hitaus

Postby GizmoGuy411 » Thu Mar 10, 2016 10:25 pm

i have officially returning from hiatus! Before you get too excited, be sure to read this entire message!

My hiatus has lasted much longer than anticipated to the chagrin of many of you, and especially SkiDoGuy who has managed the Great Lakes Region so well during my absence. We all owe him a beer or two and maybe a bit more from me!

To his credit and to the credit of all our State Managers, the Great Lakes Region continues to be considered highly in the Waze community.

TerryPurdue has also functioned admirably as SkiDooGuy's unofficial Assistant to the Acting Regional Coordinator during this period.

Now with SkiDooGuy's new life obligations, it is necessary for him to step back for while himself. Athough we have discussed his future Waze role briefly, I will let him make his own announcements when he see fit.

For now, I consider him the Great Lakes Assistant Regional Coordinator. So he is still an ARC, just a slightly different one!

The management of the GLR will be changing as I get back up to speed and consider alternate means of managing the Region.

You can be assured that we will be heavily, actually, very heavily dependent on our excellent State Managers as well as our LAMs and AMs to help in this process.

I regret to say that I will NOT be as accessible as I used to be in the past, for some time. While I may drop in on occasion to the various Google Hangouts to cause trouble, I will expect that most communication will need to flow through our established channels and not directly to me.

To be honest, my hiatus should have actually continued for some time yet as my time is still very limited.

We will also be reviewing the Area Manager application process as well as rank promotions. While I cannot give you any specifics at this time, you can expect that your State Managers especially will be more involved.

So please give SkiDooGuy, and all your GLR leaders a hand for a job well done!

Hello again GLR!

Welcome back GG, ski has been doing a great job. I'm not sure beer will cut it, you may owe him something stiffer than that. :D

If that makes you "half back" then I assume you'll be running with the ball quickly, but expect lots of editors to tackle you.

You've been missed! Don't worry, Ski did an awesome job while you were gone! A 12 pack for him sounds more acceptable. Hehe
