Greetings to the Citizens of the wonderful Kingdom of Ealdormere,
Due to circumstances beyond her control, Lady Steva finds herself unable to continue in the position of Kingdom Chatelaine. I want to thank for the wonderful job she has done over the past year and wish her well in her current and future endeavours.
As a result, I am currently looking for a new Kingdom Chatelaine. Interested persons should send a copy of their letter of intent and SCA resume to myself at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15, 2018. The intent is for the office to be taken over at Coronation on April 28, 2018.
The office of the Kingdom Chatelaine is a deputy position under the Kingdom Seneschal responsible for assisting groups with strategies and resources to help recruit and support new and prospective members of the SCA and is potentially one of the first contacts new members have within the Kingdom. Experience organizing demos at ComicCon type events would be an asset, although not required. The person applying for this position should have a mind towards active recruitment.
I look forward to hearing from those good gentles who are interested in this fun and rewarding position.
