Three Black Directors Resigned from the SCA’s Board In Six Months

During a period of half a year, three members of the Society’s Board of Directors resigned in succession. Resignations from the Board are not unknown, but they are uncommon; I believe the last one before these three was around a decade ago.

The reasons in each case were different, and I am not aware of any overall narrative that ties them all together, but it is notable (and unfortunate) that in a Society that is overwhelmingly white but struggling to be more inclusive, all three of the directors who resigned were Black.

I know this is relatively minor, but in the interests of maintaining a clear historical record, it might be useful to update the page listing the past directors of the board:

Aaron Palomides of Buckminster did not complete his term as a member of the board in April 2023; he resigned on January 10, 2023.

Thanks for pointing that out, I’ll update the page.
