Officer Reports

  • Seneschal – congratulations to Matthias on his Silver Crescent as well as being named next East Kingdom Webminister. This means she will need a new deputy, and would like to see if anyone would like mentoring as to the role of Seneschal. We are currently waiting to hear back on the status of our name change, and we would like to poll for full status once this is clear.
  • Chatelaine – Avis is a new member in attendance, no new external contacts since the last meeting.
  • MOAS – new reporting sechedule for the MOAS is January and June – please send any important A&S news to her for reporting to Kingdom. St. Eligius is coming soon, and if you want to exhibit, you MUST pre-register this year. Would like to plan a shire apple picking outing, details on Facebook group. If you are interested in retaining for the upcoming reign, please let her know.
  • Exchequer – no change in available funds, waiting on confirmation from Ostgardr that the Clarkstown check was deposited.
  • Webminister – stepping up to Kingdom role, will work with Marc to transition role and make sure that new site is available after name change.

Informal Vote – extended term for Seneschal

As there were no other submissions for this position, show of hands confirmed an additional 1-year term for Karyn.
