Greetings from the Grand Council, a committee reporting to the SCA's Board of Directors. The Grand Council is currently recruiting volunteers to fill out its numbers and provide a cross-section of opinion in its continuing work.
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 appointment, encourage your Crown to appoint your Kingdom's representative. The Grand Council meets on-line, not in person. The list is open for reading by anyone. Good e-mail access is required. We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, experiences and locations without any concern for rank or membership status. Applications are being accepted via the Grand Council's Web Page.
Applications should include SCA name, Kingdom/Principality of Residence, and Local Branch, Modern Name, e-mail address, and any relevant SCA and modern experience. Nominations should be received by July 31, 2005. Applications received after that date shall be retained for consideration for future vacancies.
The Grand Council functions as a think tank to the Board of Directors of the SCA Inc. It is charged with formulating both possible 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.
