This page defines the commitments expected of a [[Roles_and_responsibilities#Local_Champs|Local Champ]] in the United States. To retain the status of US Local Champ, with its rights and privileges, Local Champs must continue to meet these commitments, or request a leave of absence.
== Introduction ==
The role of a US Local Champ is hard earned and the title should be retained unless the
champ chooses to step down or it has been determined that a champ can no longer serve in the role due to improper conduct of a champ, or an inability to remain engaged at the level described in this document.
It is necessary to create two separate groups of US Local Champs to achieve retaining the title and showing accountability of an active status, these two groups will be explained in detail below.
*Local Champ Group (active)*Local Champ Emeritus Group (inactive)
A spreadsheet will be available for US Local Champs to review and monitor as to the status of the group and their own current status.
The spreadsheet will be formulated to present the active/inactive status of each
The formulation will use the 3 factors above, will eliminate the factor of the longest inactivity and average the remaining 2 factors.
Upon an average of 90 days of inactivity the
champ will be moved to the Emeritus Group.
Upon an average of 180 days of inactivity the
champ will be removed from both groups, this will be considered a voluntary resignation.
A US Local Champ will be assigned as the moderator of the spreadsheet for a determined time frame (TBD), the moderator will be responsible for gathering the necessary factor information to input on spreadsheet on a (TBD) basis. The moderator assignment will rotate through the champ group as a champ project.
== Spreadsheet moderator responsibilities ==
The moderator will be responsible for input of the data of the factors above and adjusting for new or removed
champs on the spreadsheet.
Upon an average of 60 days of inactivity, the moderator will attempt contact of the inactive
champ via PM and email and inquire about the champs inactivity, this will include an email to staff so they may attempt contact also.
If no contact can be established, the moderator will inquire via topic post in the
champ forum for information regarding the champ.
Upon an average of 90 days of inactivity and no response from communication attempts the
champ will be moved into the Emeritus Group and retain title, the moderator will inform champ group of loss of voting rights .
== Champ Groups Defined ==
*US Local Champ Emeritus Group:
This is the group of US Local Champs that are currently listed as inactive on the spreadsheet, average of factors being greater than 90 days, the voting rights are restricted
and reestablishment to the active group only requires current activity in the determining factors.
