Duties, powers, and task items for UCRCoA State Directors:
Ensure that UCRCoA is displaying your preferred/best contact information on the  State Chapters page [the page you just clicked on for this].  Your Director profile should include your best email address, a 150 pixel high x 100 pixel wide photo, a 75 x 75 pixel or smaller logo for your favorite organization or group, with a link provided to embed for that logo, and a very short bio of about 50-75 words.  As a state Director or higher, you may also request your free "first.last@unitedcivilrights.org" POP3/web email address, if you would prefer to use that for all UCRCoA business.  Please use this form to update your contact information, photo, org logo, and etc. as just described above.
After you complete your state leadership profile, as above, and also join the corresponding official Yahoo Group for your own State, then you will be promptly bumped up to a full-blown Moderator with rights, privileges, and powers for your State's official Yahoo Group, so with the ability to command and control all group members, do special notices, add Calendar auto-reminders going out to all group members, and etc.  The link to your official state Yahoo Group is located near the very top of the corresponding state "page" when you click your State on the State Chapters page.
Establish and maintain email/phone/IM/etc. contact with your fellow state Directors.  As a group [i.e., as the "Xxxx Civil Rights Council" Board of Directors], setup a regular and ongoing conference call schedule, either private or public.  One popular free conference call service is here.  You are likely familiar with the popular Talkshoe.com programs as well, which gives type-chat and phone conference.  You are probably familiar with others, too, as most of us have been on plenty of conference calls using these various free services.  Yahoo Messenger [like AOL Instant Messenger, "AIM"] offers free computer-to-computer Voice calls, if you have a microphone and speakers at both ends, and can also be used by a group of people on the same call/chat.  Another available enhancement for your conference calls [and for other purposes] is screen-sharing, which, like it sounds, allows the screen on one person's computer to be shared on other computers [seen by other people].  With screen-sharing, you can show people what you mean, instead of just talking about it over the phone.  Two good options for screen-sharing are GoToMeeting [which also allows actual "takeover" of another person's computer remotely, if you need, and other tools], and a free plug-in for the Yahoo Messenger, called "Unyte Lyte".  When using the Yahoo Messenger, choose "Plug-Ins", and find the Unyte Lyte plug-in.  At the very least, setup at least a regular old phone conference call for your Board of Directors asap, and begin regular communications.
Then, as your own state Board decides, divide up responsibilities for: (1) contacting, covering, and guiding your County/City Team Leaders in doing whatever they need to do [including helping Team Leaders get moderator rights for their own local Yahoo Group, so they can keep spam and etc. out of their own county group(s)]; (2) which of you will provide the rotating headlines with links as needed for the chapter news area at the top of the State Chapters "page" for your own State; and, (3) one or more of you [the Directors] to join all of the county/city Yahoo Groups in your own State, in order to forward all UCRCoA communications [and your own state-level messages] onward to the groups of people in each of your own counties, and independent cities, if applicable.  Above all, the State Board of Directors must divide out sets of counties, for coverages above, per the same breakdown that the federal court system uses, which means "Divisions" for the typical sets/groups of 5-8 counties, within a given federal court system "District" of your State. See the U.S. Courts page for more info, or talk with one of the UCRCoA Legal Scholars, or your Region's CoordMembership Director.
A collection of useful county maps, one for each State, are located here.
Encourage other qualified persons to fill any remaining Director positions on your Board, up to the recommended maximum number of Directors.  See if there are any open Board Director positions as shown available in your State, by checking for any corresponding "Urgent" or "Available" 'photos' on your State Chapters page.  The faster that your own recommended Board size is filled up with truly active and ready leaders, the faster that the needed individual and ongoing tasks are shared out, and the lighter the overall load of any one Director.
Every "State" Civil Rights Council is designed to be more independent than the higher (Regional and National) levels, in order to help accommodate the uniqueness of each State's circumstances and etc.  After your own UCRCoA State Chapter's Board of Directors is completely filled with the corresponding number of leaders listed and active enough to have completed profiles online, that full and active State Board may decide to formally incorporate "[yourstate] Civil Rights Council" as a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit under your own State's corresponding business laws, develop your own "[yourstate] Civil Rights Council" official graphic logo, create a "State" Civil Rights Council regular website (i.e., http://www.something...) [this is different than the official Yahoo Group for your State], and any other similar matters of a purely state-level function or item of interest, including organizing/titling your Board's officers, adding any needed support positions, and/or etc.  However, under no circumstances will a former State Director, previously listed online on the main UCRCoA website, after resigning, being terminated, having passed away, or being otherwise separated from UCRCoA, have any legal interest in above said assets of the reconstituted and/or continuing State Board, and shall immediately forfeit all such claims, rights, or any other interests in and of the same such materials, assets, and likewise forfeit whatever else may be of special and recognized interest in particular to UCRCoA, back to the same State Board as reconstituted and/or continuing.  In no event shall assets of the given State Board be held in the legal interest of any particular natural persons or other entities, but solely in and by the State Board, itself.  Every State Director to be listed online with UCRCoA must be aware of his/her powers and duties as contained and indicated on this page, and any lack thereof, or failure to comply with same, inherently renders his/her Directorship subject to immediate termination without futher notice, and all previous terms null and void as is required to fulfill the above intent.  All upper UCRCoA leadership have an automatic prerequisite of being also a listed State Director for their own State, and the existence of the upper leadership position is dependent upon remaining a State Director in good standing, under the same or similar duties.
Your state's Board can also be the "conduit" or "screening point of contact" for all public requests for pro se or other legal assistance in their own private, individual government cases, forwarding these requesting people along to the UCRCoA Legal Scholars in your own geographic area [the Legal Scholars are typically known only to other UCRCoA Legal Scholars and to the Board of Directors in the corresponding State]. Your Board may consider charging a small token "referral fee" - small - for matching prospective public clients with the Legal Scholars in your own geographic area. People usually are looking for legal assistance with a State case, but sometimes are interested in Federal legal help, too.  The UCRCoA's various Legal Scholars are available to be hired at reasonable rates for providing skilled legal assistance to public clients.  The higher levels of the UCRCoA's Legal Scholars will work with the 50 state Boards to make sure everyone is updated with the current private listing of Legal Scholars in the various geographic areas. The state-level Legal Scholars hold their positions indefinitely at the mutual pleasure of that state's Board of Directors, and a Director may also be a Legal Scholar in and for their own State.
