Housemartin consists of the following teams. Help, Abuse, Routing,Security, Web and Technical, and our newest team, Marketing and Promotion. These teams are governed by the Network Board of Directors. The Board consists of a Chief Administrator of Executive Operations (CAE) - Network Board Chairman // The second in command - Chief Technical and Operations Officer (CTO) - // And three other members.

During the probationary period any TWO members of the board of directors may blackball you , or otherwise request your application be resubmitted in 90 days if there is cause. This is due to vacancy of the ABUSE team causing the Board of Directors to have to oversee the process of removal. The Network CAE or CTO may also blackball or request resubmission WITHOUT cause.
