  1. Their Royal Majesties
    1. Financial stuff
      1. Our income/expenses have been during Greta's tenure as Exchequer
        1. Coronations and Crown Tournaments have been making money for the kingdom, $2000/year estimate income
        2. Quest has brought about $500/year
        3. Fundraising by Exchequer averages $1500/year, some other intermittent fundraising happens.
        4. There are other donations, but we can not count on them or predict them
    2. Discussion of fundraising goals and means.
      1. An Tir adds $2 to NMS on all events to fund the kingdom
      2. Trimaris adds $1 to all site fees
      3. Calontir expects (but cannot require by law) a percentage donation from all groups
      4. TRM will ask the populace to consider how we want to fund our kingdom with letter in June Northwatch
    3. Laws topics past and proposed
      1. Change in Crown Tournament law will be read into court at Quest and be published in the July Northwatch
      2. Creating an Order for Embodiment of the Spirit of Northshield, only one per reign, non-precedence, and high prestige. Still working on the name
      3. Proposed law change adding that the Crown can delegate authority approval for the use of the Kingdom’s name in an event name to the appropriate kingdom officer
      4. Proposed law that a group may not be suspended without a Great Officer (depending on the office that is not reporting) making an effort to contact more than one officer in a group if the nonreporting officer cannot be contacted. Remember that only the Kingdom seneschal can suspend a group.
  2. Their Royal Highnesses – Welcome!
  3. Seneschal
    1. Society Seneschal has asked for clarification on whether Castel Rouge is incorporated.

    1. There is a concern about Kingdom events and how they affect Kingdom officers. Each officer will create a checklist of things that event staff and officers need to think about and get it to Shava by June 30
  7. Exchequer
    1. 1st quarter reports are all in but 1

    3. Much about how www.northshield.org is set up is changing. Webminister is in charge of setting up structure, and more people can add information
