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 Colin 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   'Council's Board' 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.   All Roles up for 2020 Election:   Executive Council's Board Executive Director of External Affairs: Promotion by Election only (apply now) Executive Director of Internal Affairs: Promotion by Election only (apply now) Council's Board Director of Gaming Divisions: Promotion by Election only (apply now) Director of Community Engagement: Promotion by Election only (apply now) Director of Development (HGDC): Promotion by Election only (apply now) *NOTE: Interim Historian is no longer a part of this election and beyond.   Further Reading: HG Elections 2017 Meeting Notes   HG LEADERSHIP COMMITTEES APPLY NOW (forms are at the bottom) GAMING DIVISIONS CS:GO DIVISION CS:S DIVISION GMOD DIVISION TF2 DIVISION ** New divisions to come ** COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT MARKETING TEAM RECRUITMENT TEAM COMMUNITY EVENTS TEAM COMMUNITY OUTREACH TEAM PARTNERSHIPS CORPORATE PARTNERS TEAM COMMUNITY PARTNERS TEAM AMBASSADORS DEVELOPMENT (HGDC) DESIGN TEAM WEB DEV TEAM GAME SERVER TEAM MAPPING TEAM MODELING TEAM CANDIDATES There will be NO campaigning allowed.
