Well, I can only speak for my own.... :-) Maybe my lord husband
could be persuaded to elaborate on those for the office he is
leaving... Here's part of a post I sent to someone else with the
The Northern Regional Chronicler's position is, in my opinion, one
of the most fun regional offices. The duties include:
1) Receiving and reading newsletters from every Northern Region
Group. This involves checking all material to be sure it is
appropriate to an SCA branch newsletter - you get a list of stuff to
look for when you take office
2) Checking newsletters for all required copyright and disclaimer
statements and making sure no material violates mundane copyright
3) Receiving officer resignations, taking applications and appointing
new local chroniclers.
4) Reporting to the Kingdom Chronicler on a quarterly basis (prior
to each Crown Tourney and Coronation) on the status of each group's
reports. This also involves keeping the kingdom officer informed
when officers change, so that their warrant roster can always be
5) Teaching local Chronicler's classes as needed or at the request of
the Kingdom Chronicler.
These are the basic duties of Regional Chronicler and pretty much
have to be done on a reliable schedule because the status of the
groups and the sanity of the kingdom chronicler depend on it. There
should also be a #6) because there are always "other duties as
needed" that can't possibly be forseen.
As far as I know, there are no set in stone requirements. The
Kingdom Chronicler will look for someone who has been a local
officer. She would probably prefer someone who has been a
chronicler before, but I've seen regional offices go to people who
have never served a local group in that capacity. If you are
interested, I'm sure Lady Margaret would appreciate your
application. Try to get it to her as soon as possible, as she would
like to find my replacement ASAP.
Thanks for asking!
