* Be endorsed by a Champ
* Be active in the forums and chat
* Read, understand, and have a working knowledge of the wiki<!---- This can be better worded --->
=Rolls & Responsibilities=
SM responsibilities will include the following, but are not limited to:
* having editing rights in their entire state.
* Making sure Unlocks/Updates related to their state are addressed timely.
* Working with editors on issues that are related to editing and other issues as they arise.
* Maintaining and updating a closures list / wiki (if necessary) for their state.
* 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.
* Help inform editors about existing policy and helps evolve that policy based upon their work within a state.
* 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.
=How to become a State Manager=
To become an SM, an editor must be endorsed by a Champ. The final approval/decision and rolls will be assigned by the Regional Coordinator (RC) for that state.
The SM position could be a mature Rank 4, although a Rank 5 would be preferable to best handle more requests. Also, this role is not the same as AM with a larger area. There is a much greater community involvement with this role. There could also be multiple SMs for a state.
If state is too small to have their own SM, then a neighboring SM would manage that state.
