President’s Report for April Board Meeting

It’s good to know that the ceaseless stream of emails I send to Society officers are productive, even if they may at times be somewhat annoying.

Appearance on “This Just In…”

Last night I spent an hour in a livestreamed conversation about many of the topics previously discussed on this site.

For your convenience if you’d like to skip to a particular topic, here’s an outline of what we talked about:
2:35 Introduction to My Perspective
6:50 Collecting an Archive of Board Minutes
10:57 Cataloging a Decade of R&Ds and TRPs
21:25 The “125 / 0.5%” Drama
29:13 The Sanction of Brian De Moray
38:28 The List Archives Breach
47:12 How Can We Improve Things?

A New Website

Over the last year, I’ve written a growing number of blog posts about administration, policy, and governance in the SCA. The topic holds a lot of interest for me, and I expect to write more about it in the future, but it felt odd to have these cluttering up our household website which is otherwise focused on historical research, persona development, and eventing gear, so I’ve created this new website and migrated these posts over to it.

If you’re interested in these kinds of “business side” topics, I hope you find this site worth your while.

Hard Work Pays Off Eventually

Thank you to Countess Honor of Restormel for the shout-out in this quarter’s reports to the SCA BOD — I can’t wait for the Release Forms Handbook to finally be approved and distributed.

Thanks to Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin (Matthew Cavalletto) for his extensive contributions to the development of the Release Forms Handbook which is submitted for consideration to the Board of Directors this quarter. His diligence and dedication are appreciated.
