President's Reports and Conference Calls

Jason Williams, Chairman of the Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc., has posted the President's Report for the first quarter, 2007 as well as conference calls for January 31, 2007 and March 5, 2007.

Unto the membership of the Society for Creative Anachronism,

Below is the most recent President's report, containing results of the Q1 2007 BoD meeting in San Diego, the January 31, 2007 conference call and the March 5, 2007 conference call.

Please accept our apologies for the tardiness of this report. It was our intent to combine the results of the meeting in San Diego with the conference call that followed shortly on its heels into one report, thus cutting down on the number of President's reports released. Several items were remanded to a later conference call (3/5) and we again held the release of the report pending more complete information for the membership.

These delays are not fair to you, and in the future, we will simply release each President's report approximately 10 working days after each meeting or conference call.

Yours,

Jason Williams - Chairman, SCA, Inc.
(Duke John ap Gwyndaf, KSCA, OL)

BRANCH STATUS CHANGE

The Board took note of three new branches, the Shire of Blackwater (Olean, NY), the Shire of Gryffon’s Keep (Fayette County, PA) and the Shire of Westland Mor (Greensburg, PA). The Board also took note that the following three branches have dissolved, the Canton of Wintersedge (Springville, NY & Vicinity), the Shire of the Wastelands (Enid, OK), and the Shire of Dun an Chalaidh (Lincoln County, OR).

OLD BUSINESS

2007 Budget
The Board approved the draft 2007 budget.

Unofficial Entities (Guild Proposal)
By consensus, Chairman Williams ordered the Corpora I.E. Proposed Change – Unofficial Entities, which would permit certain entities such as guilds, to become official entities of the SCA, be returned to the Society Exchequer and Seneschal for further work.

NEW BUSINESS

Governing Documents Revision – Membership Requirements
Proof of membership has long been a requirement for sitting royalty, and a lapse in membership during a reign automatically resulted in termination. In order to bring officer requirements into line, the addition to Corpora of items I.D.2.a and I.D.2.b has been proposed:

Corpora currently states:

D. Membership Requirements
  1. General
    Participants should expect to show proof of membership in order to qualify for member privileges. The level of proof required should be commensurate with the long-term risk to the Society posed by an erroneous claim to membership.
  2. Officers
    Officers at all levels of the Society must be Society members as defined in the Glossary and must have immediate access to the corporate newsletter for their area received at their residence. (Alternate access arrangements may be made for members of affiliated organizations or on a case-by-case basis for people with post office boxes and for International Members.) This standard also applies to deputies designated as successors to officers subject to this provision, or assigned independent administrative duties. Deputies who only assist with specific tasks are exempt from the newsletter access requirement.

The following addition is proposed:

a. The warrants and/or appointments of officers found to be without a valid membership shall be considered terminated as of the date of the lapse.

b. Warrants terminated due to a lapse in membership may or may not be reinstated upon demonstration of a valid membership at the pleasure of the warranting authority and within the confines of the governing documents and kingdom law.

By consensus, Chairman Williams ordered this item put before the membership for comment. Commentary shall be due by May 1, 2007.

Medieval Times Curriculum
By consensus the Board approved “Medieval Times Curriculum” as presented, to be distributed to teachers for use in classes about the medieval time period.

REPORTS

Interim President—Patrick Anderson (Gabriel andvaka Kjotvason)
Report filed.

Vice President of Operations (Society Seneschal) – George Reed (Aaron faheud Swiftrunner of the Stone Keep)
The Board signed the warrants of several investigative staff members. The Board also signed the warrant for Nedra K. Dunton (Ardenia A Ruadh), the new Society Youth Activities Coordinator.

The Board upheld the following policy interpretations of the Society Seneschal:

a. Are warranted Kingdom Officers obliged to accept warranted service from all who volunteer?

Ruling: NO. The warranting authority for any volunteer position in the SCA has the responsibility and authority for deciding which volunteers to warrant or not warrant. If a volunteer already has a standing warrant in place that does not require a re-issuance upon arrival of a new warranting officer, then the removal of the standing warrant would be considered an administrative sanction and thus require due process in accordance with the Uniform Sanction Procedure.

b. Are Event Stewards/Mayors/Autocrats the final arbiter {other than appeal} of what volunteers they accept as event staff?

Ruling: YES. While there is the normal chain of appeal through branch seneschal, Kingdom Seneschal, Society Seneschal, and Board of Directors, the Event Steward/Mayor/Autocrat for a given event is the final point of basic responsibility and authority for staffing at the event for which they are the person in charge. As with all SCA officer positions we expect that this responsibility will be carried out in a reasonable, fair fashion, collecting input from appropriate committees, officers, and subject-matter experts.

c. The use of SCA assets (insurance is an asset, as is the funding used to pay premiums) for private household meetings constitutes inurement (use of organization assets for the benefit of private circumstances). Further, the hosting of events by a private group receiving Branch sponsorship speaks to the hosting of events open to all – within the Corpora requirements for attending events.

Finally, the Board ruled that the granting and/or denial of variances to waivers falls under the purview of the Vice President of Operations’ office.

Vice President of Corporate Operations—Renee Signorotti

The Board approved the sale of fractional shares of CAT.

Society Chronicler – Susan Carroll-Clark (Nicolaa de Bracton)
Report filed.

Laurel Sovereign of Arms – Lisa Mohr (Elisabeth de Rossignol)
The Board approved the following change to the Administrative Handbook:

> VII.D.5. “When an online commentary forum accessible to all members of the College of Arms is specified by Laurel as a designated entry method for comments, all comments, and comments on comments, must be entered into that forum in an approved manner. Entry of comments into that forum will fulfill the requirement of distributing commentary to Laurel and to members of the College of Arms.”

Marshal – Kevin Roderick (Hrothgar Monomakh)
The Board signed the warrant for the Society Deputy for Siege, Master Quinn Phelan.

The Board approved the following policy of the Society Marshal for Combat Archery in Lochac.

Because of the potential danger of firing arrow and bolt types used in Lochac (particularly wood shafted arrows/bolts with small diameter blunt requiring mesh on helms) at close range (<5 meters), when a fighter approaches within 5 meters of an archer armed only with a bow or crossbow using this type of missile, the archer may not attack and may therefore be considered a helpless opponent. One of the Conventions of Combat (III.B.7.) states that a fighter shall not deliberately strike a helpless opponent, and therefore these combat archers shall not be struck.

There are some combat archers in Lochac who also fight with other weapons, but many more who only use their bows or crossbows. For these who choose not to use other weapons, they may continue to use plumes to identify themselves clearly as only using a bow or crossbow (or being an unarmed banner bearer) who are therefore they are not to be struck, as to approach them close enough to strike them renders them helpless. The plumes differentiate these fighters whom are not to be struck from others who may switch from a bow to other weapons forms. Fighters shall also not strike non-plumed combatants while they are holding a bow or crossbow (as they are likewise unarmed) but may strike them if they are holding a melee weapon. Plumed combatants and non-plumed combatants holding bows or crossbows must yield to armored combatants who approach within 5 meters and declare them "dead" as per Lochac conventions. All combatants on the field, plumed or non-plumed will meet Society minimum armor standards by August 1 2008 as originally stipulated. All combatants on the field, plumed or non-plumed, are considered armored combatants, not "light" or non-combatants, and are subject to all rules laid out in the Marshals Handbook. This interpretation applies only to the Kingdom of Lochac, as this is the only Kingdom where these types of missiles, and thus the minimum firing distance of 5 meters, are used.

The Board also approved the following updates tot he Marshals’ Handbook:
Section I.B.I.: In order to be authorized as a combatant or marshal in adult armored combat, an individual must have attained his or her sixteenth (16th) birthday. In order to be authorized as a participant, combatant, or marshal in any other form of Society combat-related activity, except Youth Combat, an individual must have attained his or her fourteenth (14th) birthday.

Section VI.D. Neck Armor: The neck, including the larynx, cervical vertebrae, and first thoracic vertebra must be covered by one or a combination of the following and must stay covered during typical combat situations, including turning the head, lifting the chin, etc.: 1. The helm; 2. A gorget of rigid material; 3. A mail or heavy leather camail or aventail that hangs or drapes to absorb the force of a blow. If the camail or aventail lays in contact with the larynx, cervical vertebrae, or first thoracic vertebra, that section must be padded with a minimum of .25in (6mm) of closed cell foam or equivalent; 4. A collar of heavy leather lined with a minimum of .25in (6mm) of closed cell foam or equivalent.

Section VI.E.1. The kidney area and the short ribs shall be covered with a minimum of heavy leather worn over .25in (6mm) of closed-cell foam or equivalent padding.

Section VI.F.2.: A gauntlet made of rigid material, either lined with .25in (6mm) of closed-cell foam or equivalent or designed to transfer potentially injurious impact to the surfaces being grasped.

Section IX.A.2. Unless warranted or rostered by the Earl Marshal as an officer of the kingdom, a marshal may not be the Marshal in Charge of an event or sign the paperwork to authorize fighters.

Reason - Removing reference to non-contact that had been missed.

Section IX.A.6. All warranted or rostered marshals must be members of the Society for Creative Anachronism Inc.

Section XVIII. Glossary:

  1. Heavy Leather: Heavy Leather: stiff, oak-tanned leather nominally 11/64 inch (4.4mm) thick. Often referred to as 11 oz. leather.
    ii. Rigid Material: Steel [no thinner than] than 18 gauge, or aluminum [no thinner than] 0.075 inch (1.9 mm) thick.

    Reason - 1/8 " thickness requirement (that was not altered from previous handbook) is excessively thick to provide same rigidity as 18 gauge steel.

Minister of Arts and Sciences – Tim Jennings (Garraed Galbraith)
The Board extended the warrant of Tim Jennings, Minister of Arts and Sciences, (Garraed Galbraith), to January 2010, with the option of an extension of the warrant to January 2011.

Society Chirurgeon – Kim McAuley (Kaellyn mac Dermott)
The Board approved the following addition to Section III.9 of the Chirurgeon’s Handbook:

Should the Event Steward be unable to contact the duly-delegated administrative superior in the Chirurgeonate, the Kingdom Chirurgeon and/or the Society Chirurgeon, the Event Steward may prohibit a Chirurgeon from acting as a Chirurgeon (Corporate Officer) at an event for adequate cause. This action must be reported to the Kingdom Chirurgeon and Society Chirurgeon within 24 hours of the end of the event for review. If either the Kingdom or Society Chirurgeon disagrees with the action taken, they may refer it to the Kingdom Seneschal of the sponsoring kingdom, the Society Seneschal, and then the Board of Directors for review and possible follow- up actions.

The Board approved the following addition to Section III.13 of the Chirurgeon’s Handbook:

If the Event Steward disagrees with the action taken, they may refer it to the Kingdom Seneschal of the sponsoring kingdom, the Society Seneschal, and then the Board of Directors for review and possible follow-up actions.

Should the Chirurgeonate be functioning as a previously organized group under an approved Chirurgeon in Charge as part of the event staff of an inter-kingdom event, the Event Steward may not remove them as an organized group except under the following circumstances.

  1. The removal process for individual chirurgeons outlined in Section III.9, paragraphs 2 and 3 has been considered and followed, and the problem still exists.
  2. The removal process for the Chirurgeon in Charge outlined in Section III.9, paragraph 4 has been considered and followed, and the problem still exists.

Chief Technology Officer – Scott D. Courtney (Iustinos Tekton called Justin)
Report filed.

Grand Council – Daniel Thompson (Roger of Belden Abbey)
Report filed.

Legal Committee – David R. Knudson (Tamlin Lochmaben)
