Grand Council seeks applicants

Katrionna MacLochlainn (Lori Campbell), of the Society for Creative Anachronism's Grand Council Nominations Committee, has announced that nominations for membership on the committee are being accepted.

Her Excellency writes:

THE GRAND COUNCIL WANTS YOU!

The Grand Council is a standing advisory committee to the Board of Directors of the SCA, Inc. It is charged with providing proposals and ideas on changes to the Governing Documents of the SCA, as well as suggesting procedural changes for dealing with modern world problems and the SCA.

The Grand Council is not involved in policy decisions or debate regarding how the SCA is organized on the medieval and recreational level, except where such organization impinges on the modern world.

The Council's discussions cover a wide range of subjects. Recent discussions have focused on such topics as: core competencies of the SCA, the need for officer training, the health of local groups, transparency at the corporate level and the modification of membership requirements.

For more information on the Grand Council, please visit our web pages.

The council consists of both kingdom appointed representatives and at-large members. If there is someone you feel should be a member of the Grand Council, please encourage them to apply as an at-large member. If your kingdom has no current appointed representative, encourage your Crown to appoint one.

We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, experiences and locations without any concern for rank or membership status. The Grand Council meets on-line only, so reliable and frequent e-mail access is a MUST.

Applications are being accepted ONLINE via the Grand Council's Web Page.

Applications received prior to April 30th 2010 will be used to fill positions opening in May of this year. When completing the online form, please be sure and fill in all requested information.
