Duke John ap Gwyndaf (Jason Williams), Chairman, SCA, Inc., has announced that the Mission Statement for the SCA release recently has been rescinded.

Unto the membership of the SCA,

During recent long-range planning discussions, the Board and Corporate Officers determined that having mission statements for the SCA would be necessary tools for future initiatives. Recently, the Board released mission statements for the Corporate and re-creation activities of the SCA, for which we received substantial feedback. In retrospect, we realize that asking for commentary prior to releasing a final statement would have been preferable. In short, we made a mistake.

While based on the current language in the Governing Documents, there are subtle differences that could be interpreted as changing the focus of the SCA. This was not our intent.

Your input will be invaluable in determining what our steps going forward should be, and we ask that you continue to offer constructive commentary until March 1, 2006. Revised mission statements will be put out for comment following the April 2006 Board meeting.

Again, the Board regrets that we failed to appreciate the controversy releasing mission statements without input would cause. We do appreciate your forbearance as we correct our error.


Jason Williams - Chairman, SCA, Inc.
