As the time for change comes, we see officers changing over or preparing to change. Opportunity comes in many forms to serve the Kingdom and Society, and if you look to the Job Board in this issue of The Pale you will see the ways you can help. Many hands make light the work, and without our officers doing their jobs, we would not have an SCA to play in. (more…)
The Board of Directors of the Society for Creative Anachronism is now accepting applications for the position of Society Seneschal (Vice-President for Operations). This is a part-time, paid position, which requires approximately thirty plus hours per week.
Applicants must possess strong telephone skills, and be very capable of interacting with unique SCA personalities. The ability to process and distill large amounts of information from different sources is a requirement. Organizational and problem solving skills are essential. Having held a Kingdom Seneschal position, while not required, is preferred. Applicants must possess enough space at home for a medium sized office, have immediate access to internet, PC and printer, and possess word processing skills.
By now there have been many posts and many comments about the Society Seneschal’s announcement on interpretation on Bullying and Harassment. Harassment also falls under filing multiple false reports.
What does this mean for us? We will continue on as we did before, with the addition of posting at gate and in event hand outs or booklets (this does not include event flyers or advertisements) as required by the Society.
We will still take reports of harassment or bullying seriously as we always have. I have full faith in our Seneschals to help mediate and resolve issues, and go up to the regional or kingdom level if they need help to do so. Issues should also be included in your reports or as soon as possible.
Also, SCA Australia has a great layout that we should reference for the time being as a helpful guide.
Master Justice McArtain
As a time of war comes for our Kingdom, and drums of war are off in the distance, we still have a Kingdom at home that needs tending to. I am very excited about things that are in process currently. We have new groups that are coming forward, growing the lands of the already largest kingdom and giving a chance for our populace to expand and play. Countess Julianna is working towards helping these groups form, become a cohesive unit, and establish themselves, and I thank her for her work in this. (more…)
As the winds of change blow across the lands, do the clouds clear and we see a glimpse of the future on the horizon. I want to thank Dame Caitriona MacDhonnachaidh for her time as Kingdom Seneschal and all her good works there in, as well as her deputies, some of who are changing out also. I hope to continue on where she left off, and will do my best for our Kingdom and it’s people. (more…)
