The SCA’s Board of Directors is continually seeking nominations for individuals to serve on the Board. The Board sets policy and maintains the unified rules that provide the framework for all of the SCA’s activities and acts as the final arbiter when rule interpretation is required. Candidates for the Board may be nominated by SCA members and participants or can be self-nominated. Once nominated candidates remain on the candidate list for two years, but may renew at the end of that term if they so desire. No special experience is required and candidates do not need to have specialized modern degrees. They need not be peers. Candidates from all walks of life are desired.
Members of the Board make a four (4) year commitment when agreeing to serve (three-and-a-half (3 1/2) years after a six (6) month training period). The position does require travel a minimum of four (4) times a year to attend quarterly board meetings. Additional travel may also be needed. Board Members are volunteers, but all travel expenses (flights, food, and lodging) are covered. There is also a budget to handle administrative costs and/or necessary equipment.
The idea of being a member of the Board of Directors can sound daunting, but service in this manner is vital to the health, well-being, and future growth of our organization. To make a nomination, please send the person’s Modern Name, SCA Name, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If, before making a nomination, a chance to speak with someone who has first-hand knowledge of what is required is desired, please send your request to email@example.com and a chance to chat with a Director will be arranged.
If you send comments, please use the subject line “Call for Nominations to the BoD for SCA”.
Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
