The role of Local Champ in the United States is an important community asset that requires a level of commitment, leadership and staying informed/engaged in the waze community.


This page will define some of the guidelines that are expected of a Local Champ in the United States, as to the individual champ's current activity status and how that will reflect on the ability and permission rights dependent on status of active/inactive.


The role of a USA 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 real life experience or determined improper conduct of a champ.

It is necessary to create two separate groups of USA Local Champs to achieve retaining the title and showing accountability of an active status, these two groups will be explained in detail below.

  • USA Local Champ Group (active)
  • USA Local Champ Emeritus Group (inactive)


The guidelines on this page are specific to the United States Local Champs and do not reflect any guidelines or expectations of other country's Local Champs or the Global Champ Group.

Activity Factors

These factors will be used to determine active/inactive status:

  • Date of last wiki edit
  • Date of last forum post
  • Date of last forum visit

Process for Determination of Active/Inactive Status

A spreadsheet will be available for USA 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 champ.

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 1 year of inactivity the champ will be removed from both groups, this will be considered a voluntary resignation.

A USA 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 only 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 with a loss of specific editing area and forum access.

Champ Groups Defined

  • USA Local Champ Group:

This is the group of USA Local Champs that are currently listed as active on the spreadsheet, average of factors being less than 90 days, and has full voting rights and access to champ forum.

  • USA Local Champ Emeritus Group:

This is the group of USA 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.

Upon an average of 180 days of inactivity the champ will retain title but lose voting rights, champ forum access and editing area limited to driven routes. Reestablishment to active status will require a champ discussion and vote, and a self paced reintroduction to current practices that is monitored by assigned peer champ.

USA Local Champ Loss of Title

This guideline is specific to the activity of a champ.

Upon an average of 1 year of inactivity a champ will be removed from all champ groups and rank lowered to R5, reestablishment will be the same as if the individual was starting the process of champ request from the beginning but should be recognized as holding the title previously.
