HISTORY

To catch up on what this is, for those of you who are new to HG, check out Phase 1 (lower management restructure) and Phase 2 (final, upper management restructure & first annual Elections).



What’s New:
  • Each year we will bring on new Directors through an annual Elections process by our Staff & Member votes per the Future & Direction Board guidelines. This doesn’t mean all our current Directors lose their position or have to re-run, please read carefully below as we’ve done our best to accommodate current Leadership, while also bringing in new faces for innovation and longevity of the community.
Current Directors:
  • Each Director is given the option to commit to a 2nd year term and remain the same rank. Each person is currently being contacted directly by Huejay for a TS3 conversation.
  • Current Directors that commit to a 2nd term will have one additional responsibility, which includes mentoring the incoming elected Director till the end of the active term.
  • The HG Handbook states that Directors may hold a Director position for up to 2-years, we’ve made it so they are not required to re-run for a position for their second term.
  • Current Directors that commit to a 2nd year and complete their term including successful mentorship of their successor, will be promoted to Senior Director. Senior Directors do not have a term limit. Senior Director is the most prestigious rank awarded in HG Leadership.
Current Associate/Assistant Directors:
  • Current Leadership positions for Associates/Assistants will remain the same, however your position can be subject to change at a later date by the discretion of the newly elected Director with an approval by Chief of Staff.
Newly Elected Directors:
  • Director-Elects will have a new title (TBA) and be mentored by the incumbent Director to learn the ropes.

Hg Leadership Council - Nominatio...

Good Morning Everyone, Today's the day :devil:

As some of you may have noticed on the HG Calendar.
  • HG Leadership Council - Nominations Open TODAY, August 1st, 2016!
  • HG Leadership Council - Candidates Announced / Elections Begin in TWO weeks, August 15th, 2016
  • HG Leadership Council - Winners Announced in THREE weeks, August 22nd, 2016
Read all details below before posting or applying (which the instructions are at the bottom).
----



First, I would like to thank the HG '16 Furture & Direction Board that came together week after week to plan a better HG and address current issues across the community.
Thank you guys (and those of you not listed that came to some of the meetings): Note: F&D Board Members are grandfathered priority into their respective new HG Leadership Committee if they choose.


HISTORY

To catch up on what this is for those of you who are new to HG, check out Phase 1 (lower management restructure) and Phase 2 (final, upper management restructure) shown below:

View PostHomer, on January 4 2016 - 05:15 PM, said:

Hey everyone, I hope to clear up some more questions and attach a visual of the idea I have so far for the new structure.

HGOrganizationChart.png

As you can see there is a great deal of expansion to Council and new Committee additions. These are all areas of great importance that I plan to guide us to.

Phase 2 of getting HG back on track and addressing multiple issues among leadership involves the restructure and expansion of upper-management, that means Council and Community Directors.
All divisional operations and structure of Division Leaders and lower will not really be effected as we undergo the transition of Phase 2. Last year, Phase 1, was when we addressed the issues in lower-management, which has worked out pretty well. Our focus now is on the upper-management structure, which has been a great bottleneck to our operations and impairing lower-management's potential. I myself have been needing help at the operations level, and by expanding and aligning a new 'Council', we will be able to grow HG this year in the right direction.

I have had several leadership ask to be able to help contribute to the creation of an HG Handbook, and the new positions that will expand Council. I would like to open the document for Suggestions. In doing so, I have allowed all leadership to be able to make suggestions to the document, which requires logging in to the document with their HG Email to make live suggestions, which will be approved upon review from myself and upper-management. We will also start developing Committee specific documents, which is where all the processes, roles, and rights for positions will be documented.

Some have asked me where current Council and Community Directors will go with this transitions. Before the announcement of these plans, Council met often to develop many solutions to upper-management problems and as well agreed that Council will be grandfathered into a new invitation only Advisory Board, with the option to be grandfathered into one of the new active Council positions if they are able to fulfill its new requirements (that we are developing). The same is happening for Community Directors, we are discussing with each person individually to place them into the best position. There is a lot more for me to explain and finish writing up in the document regarding what the Advisory Board is and will assist doing, this is where many long-standing no longer active leadership veterans will reside.


HG LEADERSHIP COUNCIL

'Council's Board' now consists of any Director or higher position either elected or appointed.
'Executive Council's Board' is kept small and nimble to facilitate easier scheduling for meetings.

Yellow = New Director positions.
