What's a legal agent?  Are you referring to the corporate legal
lawyers?  If so, then I would suggest that they receive compensation
from us (either as a pro bono or through direct payment), which makes
them a contractor to the SCA, Inc.  That's a stronger relationship than
being a member.

The Registrar of the SCA (currently Renee di Calabria, mka Renee
Signorelli) is not the "Stock Clerk".  The SCA Marketplace, formerly the
Office of the Stock Clerk, is a separate entity from the Registrar's
Office.  Lady Renee is an employee of the SCA, Inc., which once again
gives her a stronger relationship than that of a member.

People join the SCA for a variety of reasons.  If I didn't have, three jobs in Ansteorra that require me to be a member, then I
would still be a member of the Society.  It's because I believe in what
we do here, and I want to support it with my money as well as my time
and sweat.
