Current Ansteorran Law requires a minimum of 5 subscribing (i.e. 
sustaining) members with at least three officers: seneschal, 
treasurer and (pick one) marshal, herald or A&S to form either a 
shire or a canton. A barony requires a minimum of 25 members with a 
full slate of officers: seneschal, herald, knight marshal, minister 
of arts and sciences, treasurer, chronicler, and hospitaler.

I wonder if a more reasonable solution would be to fold the Western 
Region into two or three of the other Regions, but leave the groups 
intact? That way there wouldn't be quite such a demand for officers.
