Board Seeks Comments on International Membership Policy Change

Meg Baron, President of the SCA, has issued a Request for Comment concerning a proposed change to the Corporate Policies on international memberships. Greetings to the membersip of the Society:

At its recent meeting, the Board of Directors requested commentary from the membership on the following proposed change to the Corporate Policies of the SCA Inc.

Corporate Policies I.B.2 currently reads:

"International Membership conveys the privileges of Section I.B.1. This membership type is available only to mailing addresses outside the United States or Australia. This type of membership is considered a subscribing membership."

This is now incorrect, as International membership is now no longer available in Finland or New Zealand, in addition to Australia, as these countries have separate corporations and affiliations. More countries will probably incorporate separately in the future. Therefore, the following change is proposed:

"International Membership conveys the privileges of Section I.B.1. This membership type is available only in locations outside the United States which are part of the SCA, Inc., and not subject to an affiliate corporation. This type of membership is considered a subscribing membership."

Your input is important! Please send your comments to:

Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.
P.O. Box 360789
Milpitas, CA 95036-0789

Commentary must be received by October 1, 2004.
