Provincial Officer Elections 2021

The following provincial officer positions are up for election: Seneschal, Herald, Webminister, Historian, and Fencing Marshal. Each officer is elected for a two year term. Herald, Webminister, Historian, and Fencing Marshal all have incumbents who may choose to run again. Seneschal is term-limited and requires a new person shouldering the mantle.

Letters of intent from incumbents and new candidates are due by next provincial commons, Oct. 20th. For any positions which have multiple contenders, the populace will have an opportunity to meet the candidates at our November 17th commons. Voting (via a Google form) will conclude before our December 15th commons, where the results will be announced. Positions which have a single volunteer will be affirmed at the December 15th commons.

Below are the job descriptions as provided by our Vicereine. Please feel free to reach out to the current office holders with any questions about what the job entails.

Seneschal: Chief administrative officer of a branch, responsible for day-to-day overall smooth running of the Province. Current office holder Hlæfdige Alienor Salton.

Herald: The office of the herald is two parts: 1. voice herald responsible for running Provincial Court and filing reports after each court, and 2. helping members of the populace submit names and heraldic devices. You do not have to be able to do both and can have a deputy to help with one or the other. Current office holder Dama Drasma Dragomira.

Chatelaine position available!

Chatelaine, always a crucial role for our province, has even greater relevance in these After Times, connecting people, new and old, to each other through their shared interests in our recreational hobby. Defender Against the Lonely Arts, this champion of conviviality forges the bonds of our community. Do you have what it takes? Nominate yourself at or before our Wednesday August 18th Commons.

To be a successful chatelaine, you have to like talking to people, both newcomers and people who have been playing for a while. You are the bridge between the modern world and the SCA. You tell people what we do, you find out what people are interested in, and you hook them up with other people who share their interests. We have a large collection of Gold Key (loaner garb) in the province, which you are responsible for circulating and maintaining. You also provide contact information and flyers suitable for distribution at demos. Being responsive to email is an important facet of this job. Reports to the kingdom four times per year on newcomer contacts and new members. Kingdom policies are posted at chatelaine.eastkingdom.org.
