How to become a State Manager ==
An editor must meet the requirements stated in the section [[
State_Manager#Requirements|Requirements]]. The final approval/decision will be assigned by the Regional Coordinator (RC) for that state.
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.
