Baronial Seneschal

Are you Stormhold’s next Seneschal???

Greetings!

This an opportunity to make a difference, and to guide the direction of the Barony of Stormhold.
My warrant as Group Seneschal will shortly expire and the Kingdom Seneschal is actively seeking applications for my replacement. This two-year office is a broad and varied role, more diverse than the official description suggests.
The Seneschal is a group’s chief administrative officer and, among other things:

  • Serves as the principal mundane legal representative of the SCA within the group
  • Receives reports from all other group officers on the status of their office
  • Makes such reports as are required to the B&B and Kingdom Seneschal
  • Has the final say on which events the group sponsors, and is the final authority for each event steward if problems or concerns arise
  • Promotes the smooth running and continued growth of the group, its offices, and its events

You may not think that you are the right person for this job, but if your friends forward you a copy of this notice, pay attention to them! And if you know someone who you think would be good in the job, do them (and all of us) a favour – ask them to apply.

For more general information about the role, see:

Please send your applications by 9 December 2021 to seneschal@lochac.sca.org, with a courtesy copy to seneschal@stormhold.lochac.sca.org.
If you would like to know more about the job, or to discuss how you see yourself taking it forward, I – or indeed the Kingdom Seneschal – would love to hear from you!
Yours in Service,
Amelia de la Mere
