State Manager (SM) Community Role

Post by orbitc
Hi All,

The "State Manager (SM)" community role was established for the USA in July of 2014.

SM duties include the following, but are not limited to:
  • SM will have editing rights in their entire state.
  • They will make sure Unlocks/Updates related to their state are addressed timely.
  • They will work with editors on issues that are related to editing and other issues as they arise.
  • They will maintain and update a closures list / wiki (if necessary) for their state..
  • They will Maintain/Update/Lead the Waze Forum State Page. They can monitor the forum, post updates, keep enthusiasm about state discussions going, and help keep the RC informed.
  • They will help inform editors about existing policy and helps evolve that policy based upon their work within a state.
  • They will identify key areas in their state.
  • SM will identify the good and the bad editors
  • Keeping RC (and local Champ where available) informed with good and bad editors (Basically the RC's would like to get the SM's opinion on an editor)
  • Keeping an eye on newer editors throughout the state and educate them by mentoring them informally or formally.
  • The SM position could be a mature Rank 4, although a Rank 5 would be preferable to best handle more requests.
  • This role is not the same as AM with a larger area. There is a much greater community involvement with this role.
  • There could be multiple SMs for a state..
  • If state is too small to have their own SM, then a neighboring SM would manage that state.
  • SM roles will be assigned by RCs with Champ endorsement

  • This role is a prerequisite to becoming a Country Manager (CM).
Experienced Rank 4 editors must seek endorsements from other SMs or by R5 and above editors for consideration to become an SM from their RC.

Experienced Rank 5 editors and above may directly request consideration to become an SM from their RC.
