Padraig From the Kingdom Seneschal,
Barún Pádraig:

Magnificence is a popular, though poorly known virtue. It means to do great things. First spoken of by Plato, it carried through from antiquity all through our period. Towering buildings with intricate stained-glass windows are a testament to magnificence as is a brilliantly brocaded dress or illuminated book.

For us, magnificence is a peer-like quality, though of the many I have spoken to on the subject none mentioned it by name. We strive to fight harder, create better, research deeper, and serve more. We get together to discuss the great things our friends have done and tell tales of the great deeds of the past.

Do me a favor and let me know about the great things you see done. I love reporting about it to Society. I love bragging about our people to my fellow seneschals.

The time for our next coronation is neigh, and swiftly upon its heels we will have the Curia Regis for their newly minted Majesties. We are scheduling this one online for April 18th, and I greatly look forward to seeing you there. Likewise, I look forward to seeing you all at the many events we have over the next few months. Let’s go out there and do great things.

Society Announcements

NMR Increase
Effective April 1, 2024:

The Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA) Inc. wishes to inform its participants about a change in the cost of event memberships, referred to in some places as the non-member registration, and how it will be implemented. 

Effective April 1, 2024: 

The non-member registration (NMR) for event memberships will be increased from $5 to $10 from April 1, 2024. This adjustment is necessary to support the continued growth and sustainability of our events and organization. 

Action Required: Update Event Advertising 

To ensure transparency and accurate information for our community, we request all event stewards and organizers for events occurring after March 31, 2024, to update their advertising materials promptly. Please reflect the new event membership rate (non-member registration) of $10 in all promotional content and event announcements. 

Please read the rest of the announcement here: https://www.sca.org/news/implementation-of-the-april-1-2024-increased-event-membership-rate-non-member-surcharge/ 

Membership Fee Increase Effective February 15, 2024:

The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA, Inc.) is announcing an increase in membership fees and non-member registration fees for events.

This decision comes after careful consideration and extensive discussion among the Board of Directors, office staff, and Corporate officers. The effects of inflation across all sectors of operation, as well as other factors impacting the organization’s operational costs, including insurance premiums, legal expenses, and general business expenses, necessitated a comprehensive review of membership rates.

Annual membership fees have not been adjusted in over a dozen years, and non-member registration fees have not increased in over 15 years.

Please read the rest of the announcement here: https://www.sca.org/news/membership-fee-increase-effective-february-15-2024/

SCA Inc. is focused on creating a sustainable, stronger, connected Society and Directors believe that the right President will be pivotal in helping achieve this vision through driving the delivery of the Board’s strategic goals.

If you’re ready to lead with innovation, inspire a dedicated team and drive strategic initiatives towards a future of growth and positive impact for the Society, we invite you to apply.

Commentary Request – Draft Corpora Wording – Omnibus Peerage Proposal:

Currently approximately 8000 people around the Knowne World actively participate in target archery, combat archery, siege weapons, thrown weapons and equestrian martial activities.  While no ultimate decision has yet been made the Board believes that a proposal of a path to peerage for these individuals is worthy of deep consideration.  

Having received advice from the Peerage Committee, Directors have discussed the matter and following some minor amendments to language which align the proposed draft of Corpora wording to the existing patent orders, the Board feels that the proposal has matured to the point where commentary on the proposed Corpora wording from members is requested. This commentary will assist the Board in forming further decisions relevant to its consideration of this matter.
