I want to see this domain run well administratively, with clear and open communication and cooperation between the DC and DST offices, and also between the DST and the higher Coordinator chain of command.  Our domain already does this well in my opinion, and the primary power for running games at this time is in the hands of the VSTs, leaving the DST primarily as administration, coordination, and oversight, while supporting the VSTs to the degree requested.  I feel like I've helped with this over the past two years, and want to continue to maintain the level of coordination and communication we've achieved so far.  
Plan of Action
I plan to continue to carry out the duties of the office, check the database with frequency, file all reports promptly, respond to emails in a timely fashion, and maintain open communication with the DC's office, as well as the ST chain of command as necessary.  We've just had (or in one case, are still having,) a number of VST elections, several of which have resulted in first-time VSTs, who I am talking with and working with to ensure all needed support is provided.  And as always, we have our Feature Game coming up in January.  
We're at the point as a domain where newer members are taking on more of the VST positions, and I'm excited to get to support and assist them in this.
