Request for Commentary – Mission Statement
Currently open for commentary is a proposal to expand the Society’s Mission Statement.
The Mission Statement currently reads as follows:
The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA) is an international organization devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century life, employing knowledge of history to enrich participants’ lives and the lives of others through events, demonstrations, and other educational venues.
The proposed revision reads as follows:
The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (the “Society”) is a 501(c)3 Educational Not-for-Profit organization devoted to the study of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. As a living history group, the Society provides an environment in which members can recreate various aspects of the culture and technology of the period, as well as doing more traditional historical research.
The Society’s mission is to promote the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth century life, employing knowledge of history to enrich the lives of participants and others through live events and other educational venues.
In pursuing this mission, the Society is committed to excellence in its programs and activities and to
∙ act in accordance with the chivalric virtues of honor and service;
∙ value and respect the worth and dignity of all individuals;
∙ practice inclusiveness and respect pluralism and diversity;
∙ promote a safe and respectful environment for all Society events;
∙ act with transparency, fairness, integrity and honesty;
∙ be a responsible steward of Society resources; and,
∙ be committed to maintaining the trust of its members and participants.
It is the expectation of the Society that its members and participants, in all events and activities of the Society, will conduct themselves in accordance with these tenets.
