July Missive

Greetings unto the populace of Northshield,

Your Kingdom Needs You

The SCA is, except for a handful of corporate positions, an all-volunteer organization. As Baroness Sorcha, the Kingdom Seneschal, pointed out, it takes 100-150 people to volunteer for the various kingdom offices, from Great Officers of State to the regional deputies to the various specialist deputies. The Chronicler’s office has an above-average number of open or vacant positions, starting at the top.

I am stepping down as Kingdom Chronicler at Boar’s Head on December 2, 2023. The office is officially open for letters of intent for my successor to step up then. As a great office of state, the office has a voice and the responsibility of being a member of the Stallari Council. It is largely an administrative position, overseeing the more specialized deputies and making sure those positions are filled. One of my favorite duties is submitting nominations for the William Blackfox Awards, the Society chronicler awards. While experience as a chronicler, webminister, and/or social media officer can be helpful, it is not required. If you have questions about the kingdom chronicler position, or would like to be a deputy kingdom chronicler to get a feel for the office, let me know.

Please submit letters of intent to chronicler@northshield.org by September 1, 2023.

Bâro Iohannes’ tenure as Kingdom Webminister comes to an end this November. Please submit letters of intent to chronicler@northshield.org by September 1, 2023.

In addition to the Kingdom Webminister, we are looking for volunteers for the new website development team. There are four positions the website development team needs volunteers for these positions:

Special Deputy: Web Service Developer
This is a limited-term role under the Webminister. This individual will assist in the creation of the new Northshield website. Desired skills or knowledge includes MySQL, PHP, JSON, and Git Experience.

Special Deputy: Web Plug-In Developer
This is a limited-term role under the Webminister. This individual will assist in the creation of the new Northshield website. Desired skills or knowledge includes programming for WordPress. Plug-In Maintainers and database Programmers with knowledge of WordPress Security Architecture, Object Oriented PHP, JSON, JQuery, MySQL and Git experience are also desired.

Special Deputy: Web Front End Developer
This is a limited-term role under the Webminister. This individual will assist in the creation of the new Northshield website. Desired skills or knowledge includes WordPress theme design/development (website designer, GUI designer, PHP programmer, all in one),JSON, AJAX, and Git experience. Javascript knowledge a plus.

Special Deputy: Web Administrator
This is a limited-term role under the Webminister. This individual will assist
in the creation of the new Northshield website. Desired skills or knowledge includes DNS administration, website backup administration, general administrative tasks, and Git experience.

All four positions are open until filled.

Applications should be sent to the Kingdom Chronicler (chronicler@northshield.org) and Kingdom Webminister (webminister@northshield.org).

Additionally, these positions continue to remain open. They include:

• Emergency Deputy Kingdom Chronicler
• Kingdom Archivist/Historian
• Media Relations Deputy
• Deputy Northwatch Editor
• Western, Central, and Eastern Regional Deputy SMO
• TikTok Deputy SMO

Many hands make light work. If anyone is interested in learning more about the chronicler’s office, and/or is interested in becoming either a local group chronicler, a deputy kingdom chronicler, or the kingdom chronicler, please let me know. I will be very glad to talk to you about it.

Ever in service to Crown, Kingdom, and you,
