August Missive

Greetings unto the populace of Northshield,

I continue to be impressed by the few local newsletters Northshield still has. I had the pleasure of nominating three of the newsletters for William Blackfox Awards, the Society’s publications awards. The winners should announced this winter.

We continue to have an number of open positions in the Chronicler’s office: Kingdom Chronicler: 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 responsibilities 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. 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, please contact me.

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

TikTok Deputy SMO: The TikTok deputy helps promote Northshield and the SCA via TikTok. Open until filled.

Kingdom Webminister: The Webminister reports to the Society Webminster and the Kingdom Chronicler. This is an administrative (not development) position that oversees/helps the local Webministers of the kingdom, maintains the Webminister’s handbook, and manages the kingdom website (a web-based application) to ensure it meets the needs of the kingdom officers and the populace. Please submit letters on intent to chronicler@northshield.org by September 1, 2023.
