SCA Inc. Announcement on Background Checks

Patrick Anderson, President of the SCA Inc., has made a brief announcement concerning the implementation of background checks for certain officials of the organization.

Patrick Anderson writes:

As was announced last year, the SCA is implementing a background check policy for the benefit of our membership and the organization.

The background checks will be performed by a properly licensed vendor for all persons in leadership and supervisory roles that may require contact with otherwise unchaperoned minors.

Officials who are required to have background checks include, but are not limited to, youth activities officers at all levels, adults acting as youth marshals for any martial activity, persons organizing/ in charge of youth activities for events.

This policy will be implemented on February 15, 2008. The Kingdom Seneschals will be informing those who need to undergo background checks of this requirement. Current officers requiring background checks that are subject to this policy will have 4 weeks to return the appropriate paperwork before their warrants will be revoked.

Any questions concerning the implementation of the policy should be directed to your Kingdom Seneschal.
