As many of you know by now the office of the Webminister is undergoing many
great and wonderful changes at the Corporate level. It is now just a matter
of time before each kingdom follows suit. To that end we are once again in
need of opening up the Regional Virtual Scribes offices in our Kingdom.
There are many reasons for this need. First and foremost is that a regional
officer is a valuable link in the chain of command. Something that has not
been needed for some years in this office but something that the Kingdom
Chronicler and I both have felt has been needed. Although some of you feel
that our kingdom is shrinking he and I see that it is not. There is growth.
With that growth comes up situations that a Regional is best suited to
handle since they are there in the middle of it all and travel for a Kingdom
Officer is becoming a luxury that may no longer be as easily possible as it
was before with our gas prices going as they are. Travel expenses is a long
discussed subject, one that has shown up on our mailing lists almost once a
month in the last 6 years.
