While the artisans of Calontir are amazing and make it so easy to encourage them, my time as Kingdom Minister of Arts and Sciences is coming to a close, and I find myself in need of a successor. This job is so much more fun than work. As the chief officer of arts and sciences in the Kingdom, you work to foster and develop A&S in the Kingdom, and you make sure that the Kingdom competitions (Kingdom A&S and Queen's Prize) occur and go as well as possible. You also have a slew of local officers who report to you, and you report to the Society A&S officer (the reports are not complicated or lengthy). This Kingdom is always a joy to serve, and this office is especially filled with smiling faces, remarkable artisans, and fascinating people.

If you think this sounds like a job for you, letters of intent are due to Their Royal Highnesses and myself no later than January 25, 2014, to have interviews at Clothier’s Seminar on February 1, in Cum An Iolair.

February 10, 2012 - Lawsuit Donations

The Board of Directors would like to express its gratitude for the generosity of the good people of the SCA. We know many of you are holding fund-raisers and seeking ways to donate to the Society, thank you. We deeply appreciate all your efforts. We have had many e-mails, telephone calls and messages asking about donations. Here are some guidelines for donating or sending money to SCA Inc.

You are free to hold fundraisers or make personal donations, and the SCA deeply appreciates your efforts and your support of our shared organization. We would suggest that you make any such donations directly to your Kingdom to help it pay the amount it will be required to contribute as its part of the SCA’s obligations in the settlement. Some Kingdoms have organized ACCEPS “event” to accept donations, so if it is more convenient for you to donate online, check the ACCEPS site to see if your Kingdom has created a donation “event.” Any donations made through ACCEPS will go to the Kingdom.

If you choose, you may also send a donation directly to the corporation, and it will be gratefully accepted as a general donation toward the SCA’s operating expenses. The corporate office is working on a Paypal account and will add a button to the SCA’s website once the account is established. Any donations sent directly to the corporate office or through the corporate Paypal account will not be counted toward your Kingdom’s obligation.

We also encourage the membership to opt out of paper newsletters as soon as possible because it reduces the amount of operating expenses the SCA must pay. See your Kingdom newsletter or www.sca.org for more information on how to opt out of paper newsletters. You will soon have access to the electronic version of all the Kingdom’s newsletters!

We encourage our members to use one of these methods or to send a check directly to your Kingdom Exchequer or the SCA’s corporate office in Milpitas to ensure your donation is received and put to its intended use. Thank you all again for your support of our wonderful Society!

February 5, 2012 - Lawsuit Settlement

The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA) has been operating under the burden of a massive and difficult legal battle that has critically drained resources and caused significant ongoing difficulties for the organization. In October 2011, the board of the SCAand its legal counsel were finally able to resolve this issue, but not without significant financial costs.

The Board of Directors and Officers of the SCA continue to make significant efforts to be as transparent as possible, but since the case related to the heinous sexual abuse of several minors, we naturally have been and continue to be unable to discuss many aspects of the case.

February 2, 2012 - Seeking Commentary - Same-Gender Consort Proposal

At the Oct 2011 Board meeting, in response to a formal request from An Tir and a substantial amount of related correspondence from our membership, we committed to crafting proposed language to allow same-gender consorts at the Crown/Coronet List level to send out for commentary. This topic is clearly emotionally charged for many people, whether for or against the change. We do not have clear direction from a majority of participants based on either the Census data or the correspondence received to date.

The Board therefore solicits commentary on the following potential language change to its governing documents in hopes of eliciting commentary and direction from the membership:

Current language:

Each competitor in a Royal Lists must be fighting for a consort of the opposite gender.

Proposed language:

Each competitor in a Royal Lists must be fighting for a consort of the opposite gender. Crowns may permit entry into the Royal Lists by same-gender couples.

Comments on this proposal are due by April 1, 2012. Please use the title “Same-Gender Consort Proposal” in the Subject line.

Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:

SCA, Inc.
P.O. Box 360789
Milpitas, CA  95036

You may also e-mail comments@lists.sca.org.
