The President is the principal spokesperson for the SCA. The President is required to execute contracts necessary to properly conduct the SCA's business, and may delegate similar responsibilities. The President works with the Vice President of Corporate Operations to coordinate much of the day-to-day modern operation of the Corporation, and supervises many of the Society Officers. The President is also responsible for such legal matters as contracts and merchandising, and arranges agreements with modern businesses for member benefits. The President may be expected to perform other duties as assigned by the Board.
Qualifications for the position include excellent written and oral communication skills, the ability to work independently to prioritize tasks and meet deadlines, and strong computer skills. Experience in a modern business setting, organizational ability and problem-solving skills are a must. Experience in a modern non-profit organization and prior experience at the Corporate level of the SCA are desirable, but not required.
Applicants must be available to attend quarterly meetings of the Board of Directors, typically held over a Friday and a Saturday. They must also be available for approximately four conference call meetings per year, typically during weekday evenings. As a great deal of the Board's business occurs via the internet, familiarity and basic skills with a computer, MS Office software (such as Microsoft Word and Excel) printers, and e-mail are required. The SCA provides a laptop work station, but the successful applicant must have reliable access to electronic mail and a printer.
Hard copies of résumés (both professional and medieval, including offices held and awards received) must be sent to the attention of the Board at the SCA Corporate Office, P.O. Box 360789, Milpitas, CA 95036-0789. Résumés must be received by July 31, 2006. Questions regarding this position may be directed to Jason Williams, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the SCA Inc.
