We have a community role called: "The State Manager (SM)" for was first developed in the USAand has since been used in several other countries around the world.{{AddCode|Expand The role was designed to organize the description of editing efforts across the State fifty United States and their territories. This role acts as a springboard for country-wide responsibilities, providing an intermediate step between the [[Area Manager]] (AM) and the [[Country Manager ]] (SMCM)}}role.
== Requirements ==
* Active in community
* Active in the forums and chat
* Able to add / update wikipages.<br><!---- This can be better worded if needed --->
== Roles & Responsibilities ==
<!---- This section is currently being fine tuned and will be changed to meet the final decisions/definition of an SM ---->
SM responsibilities will include the following, (but are not be limited to) the following:
* Being granted editing rights in their entire state.
* Help inform editors about existing policy and help evolve that policy based upon their work within a state.
* Identify key areas in their state.
* Identify, and keep the [[Regional Coordinator]] (RC ) (and Local Champ, (LC) or Global Champ (GC) where available) informed about advancing editors with good skills, and those editors which need improvement. (Basically the RCs would like to get the SM's opinion on editors in their state.)* Keep a lookout for newer editors throughout their state, and educate them by mentoring them formally, or informally.
== How to become a State Manager Attainment ==
An editor must meet the requirements stated in the section [[State Manager/USA#Requirements|Requirements]]. The final approval/decision will be assigned made by the Regional Coordinator (RC) for that state.
This role is not the same as an AM with a larger area. There is a much greater community involvement with this role. There could also be multiple SMs for a single state.
If a state is too small to have their own SM, then a neighboring SM would manage that state.
== State Manager Useful Links ==
<!---- Add links that are "important" for and about SMs ---->
