 It's sort of a case of potAto, pOtato...
 Every organization makes decisions what to cal someone in a position, and 
in part, that's to meet the structure they have in place for a hierarchy of 
position titles. As an example, sometimes divisions report to departments, 
in other cases it's exactly the opposite.
 I'm unaccustomed to thinking of a "coordinator" being the same as a 
"Manager". In most instances I've been involved in, the Manager (or 
Director) is the highest level, and an analyst or coordinator is more of a 
mid-level position.
 As for the earlier discussions (where this thread began) about Records 
Liaisons, our Liaisons are not functionally members of the Records 
Management Organization. We do, however, consider them part of the overall 
Records Management Program. They are employees in other organizations that 
have been provided some level of training related to records management 
policy and procedures, have a more direct understanding of the retention 
schedule than others in their organizations, and are considered the "first 
line" for departmental employees for contact with respect to records 
management issues. We provide quarterly training for these individuals and 
periodically communicate with them in regard to any known records 
destruction moratoriums, or other issues pertaining to decisions that may 
impact records issues.
