Applications for Peerage Committee – Deadline May 24, 2019

The Board of Directors is accepting applications from participants interested in being a part of the Peerage Committee. We are looking to expand the committee to represent as many Kingdoms as possible. Currently, the committee has representatives from West, East, Middle, and Ealdormere.

The mandate/scope of the committee is to gather data and study the possibility of the creation of new Peerage Orders within the Society, in order to assist the Board with its decision-making process.

Applicants should be broadly familiar with all aspects of SCA culture and represent a diversity of opinions/backgrounds.  They must be willing to work collaboratively with the existing Committee and the Board of Directors.  Experience in conducting and analyzing surveys and polls is useful, but not a prerequisite.

The Committee currently conducts a monthly conference call, as well as pursuing work outside the meetings.

Applicants should direct a resume and a letter of application to resumes@sca.org.  Deadline for applications is May 24, 2019.

Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:

2019 Peerage Committee Survey – Withdrawn

Effective immediately, the Board of Directors and the Peerage Committee is withdrawing the Peerage Survey published on December 28, 2018.

A number of issues have been identified with this survey related to privacy regulations in various countries and the collection of identifying data. It is clear that the Committee’s attempt to construct a neutral and unbiased survey has been unsuccessful. It has instead caused offense and dissension, and for this, we apologize. Please note all member information gathered will be erased.

Please note that the survey was not sponsored in any way by the East Kingdom.

The Board and Committee thanks all participants for its constructive criticism and suggestions. Should you have any further comments or feedback, please email peerage@sca.org and sca-comments@lists.sca.org.

2019 Peerage Committee Survey – Withdrawn2019-01-02T09:55:55-05:00

2019 Peerage Committee Survey

On behalf of the SCA Board of Directors, the Peerage Committee would like to solicit the opinions of all members of the Society in the following survey to gauge post-implementation views within the Society of the addition of the Order of Defense, as well as to understand the appetite for a future martial peerage or peerages for activities such as archery, thrown weapons, equestrian, and siege engines.

The last survey of this type, the SCA Census, was conducted over 10 years ago.  Much has changed within the Society in the years since that survey, and the Board cannot assume the data from the Census still reflects the opinions of members, particularly following the implementation of the Order of Defense.

The purpose of this survey is to understand if and how opinions have changed since the Order of Defense was introduced as a Peerage order, as well as to understand the lessons learned during that implementation.  The Board also recognizes that there has been much discussion by the membership since the implementation of the Order of Defense regarding extending recognition to other activities currently not covered by a martial skill-based peerage, including (but not limited to) archery, thrown weapons, equestrian activities, and siege engines.  This survey is a prelude to any future discussion by the Board regarding additional peerage Order(s).

By completing this survey, you will help the Board to collect fresh data regarding attitudes towards existing and potential Peerage orders, and to progress the discussion of these topics.  Thank you for your assistance in this matter. Deadline for completion of this survey is January 28th, 2019. The Survey is now live at :

 (link removed 31/01/2018)

If you wish to re-take the survey to change your responses should your opinions change you may retake the survey but be aware that taking the survey again will negate your previous survey in its entirety. Please fill the survey out again fully.

Accident at Event

On Saturday, October 6, a brother in arms to many of us lost his life in the pursuit of our game. The Society’s Equestrian Marshal, Master Terafan Greydragon, died while competing in an equestrian game at an SCA event in Kentucky. The Society is investigating the matter and is fully cooperating with the authorities. The Society Marshal is conducting an investigation to determine what might have led up to the accident, and what specific measures should be taken to ensure that this does not occur again. Upon the completion of our investigation, the SCA will make the results available to the public. We have reached out to Terafan’s family to express our support for them at this moment of loss. We ask that Terafan and his family be held in your hearts.

Updated Hate Speech Language

At the Board of Directors July 2018 meeting, the following addition to Corpora was approved and is to be considered effective immediately.
“Corpora Article X, Grievances and Sanctions, A. General, Add Section 4:   Hate Speech
Hate speech is not tolerated in the Society.  Hate speech is speech or symbols that offend, threaten, or insult individuals or groups, based on race, color, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, disability or other traits.  Such symbols and speech have no essential part of any discussion of ideas and are of so little value to the Society that any benefit that may be derived from them is clearly outweighed by the harm caused. The use by any participant in the Society may result in possible sanctions up to and including revocation of membership and denial of participation.
Please report any possible instances of hate speech to your Kingdom Seneschal, the Society Seneschal or the President of the SCA immediately.  For more information about hate speech and the reporting of same, please refer to the Society Seneschal’s Handbook.  “
Corpora will be updated shortly.
