NOVEMBER 28, 2005: Scott Courtney, Chief Technical Officer of the 
Society for
Creative Anachronism Inc., announces the appointment of Marla Lecin, 
known in
the SCA as Mistress Jessa d'Avondale, to the position of Webmaster. In 
role, Ms. Lecin will have primary responsibility and authority for 
and maintaining content and for the visual design of the web site. The

Formerly, the title of Webmaster was not formally defined, and was 
folded into the office of Chief Technical Officer, with Ms. Lecin 
informally as a deputy to the CTO. This appointment recognizes her 
with a title appropriate to the work she is already doing, and indeed 
has done
for several years under two different CTOs.

In addition to recognizing and formalizing Ms. Lecin's role, the 
appointment of
Webmaster as a separate office allows the Chief Technical Officer to 
focus more
time on the technical infrastructure of the SCA's servers and on 
information technology policies and initiatives.

The role of Webmaster is entirely separate from the Society Web 
Minister, an
officer who serves as a deputy to the Society Chronicler. The Society 
Minister is involved in policies for administration of web sites at 
the kingdom

web site
in particular and reports to the Chief Technical Officer, who is in

engineer and ten years as a freelance web developer, her current 
In the SCA, Mistress Jessa d'Avondale, OP, is a resident of the East
Kingdom. She has served as a Chronicler at levels up to Kingdom, as a 
member for the "Tournaments Illuminated" publication at the Society 
and in numerous other offices. She has been a member of the 
SCA "Webfolks"
team almost since its inception, seeing the www.sca.org web pages 
several major redesigns as well as countless incremental changes. Many 
members may also recognize her contributions as webmaster of the 
Pennsic War
web site, www.pennsicwar.org.
