I will be accepting nominations for Provincial Herald and Provincial Chronicler from now until Thursday, May 4 at our Province meeting (that’s next week). Nominations will be announced at that meeting and elections will follow at our June Province Meeting, June 1st. Nicolas has stepped down, and Christiana will step down in June if a replacement can be found. These positions will be through the end of the current term which ends in December and officers may run for re-election at they time if they so wish. Please send SCA name/mundane name and proof of paid membership to me at by 5pm next Thursday.
From the EK Herald’s Handbook, being a branch Herald involves the following:
- Consulting (helping someone submit a name or device)
- Commenting on the Letter of Intent through OSCAR
- Crying the camp and making announcements
- Heralding a list
- Heralding a court
Falling in between Book and Voice Heraldry are:
- Handling matters of precedence and protocol
- Serving as a local heraldic officer
Is next in line if the Seneschal cannot complete his/her duties. Read more here: http://herald.eastkingdom.org/Brigantia%20Handbook.pdf
A branch Chronicler is required to publish at least 4 newsletters per year, take minutes at Province Meetings and conduct officer elections as well as other duties listed here: http://chronicler.eastkingdom.org/localpolicies/index.htm#Requirements
If we do not have these officers in place by June, we could lose our status as a Province, so if you are interested, please let me know. Both of these positions come with lots of support and guidance – AND – you get to pick minions! um… I mean deputies!
