Assistant Regional Coordinator

Carl's comment: Until relatively recently thing worked on consensus. And most of the US Champs seem to be bold enough to voice their objections. In the absence of any objection to a RC adding any particular ARC, it should basically be assumed that no one has any reason to vote no in a poll. So I would suggest that the ARC selection should also be champ-community driven, but in the absence of any objection to a proposed promotion there is no reason for an election.

Orbit: This entire group is made out of champs. We voted every single of them to be in this group. That means that we have some level of confidence and trust in them to be able to assist RCs with the AM applications and other promotions. The decision to assign ARC(s) is up to the RC. Due to the fact that in most cases (if not all) the ARC is is in the same region as the RC and already working together with the RC. Often, RCs consult with their local SMs, CMs and LCs for an advice. This is an extension of that thought. RCs can assign a person to be their support person as long as the person is a LC. ARCs primary goal to help with the AM applications. Any major changes etc still falls on to RC as usual. The level of collaboration is up to the parties involved. If the RC does step down that does not mean that ARC automatically steps in... because we should go through the new voting procedure that we have been setting up.

The decision

Paul: An ARC should be a nomination of the respective regional RC, an announcement of the nomination should be posted in the champ forum for an "objection/discussion" period. The nominee must be at least an LC. If there are no objections at completion of this period the nomination is approved. If there are objections, discussion and consensus must be established for each item of objection. Should this not be accomplished in the time period the nomination fails, and a new nominee must be considered. It should be noted that the nominee will have full access to comment/defend on any objection as they will have full access to the discussion as an LC/GC. The role of an ARC should fall in line with that of the RC, but the RC should be considered the senior decision maker for the region. Upon assuming the ARC role the RC and ARC can establish their roles for the region. If an RC steps down, the ARC will assume temporary RC duties until the permanent status can be voted upon. The ARC does not automatically assume the permanent RC role as this is a voting situation, but they can be an automatic nominee.
