Nominations must be received by July 31, 2003.

The Grand Council functions as a think tank to the Board of Directors of the
SCA Inc.  It is charged with formulating both possible changes to the
Governing Documents of the SCA, as well as suggesting procedural changes for
dealing with modern world problems and the SCA.

Recent discussions have included:
*  Youth activities and waiver text
*  The office of Minister of Children
*  Creating a polling process for voting on changes and officers in a group
   that allows for members outside the traditional area of that group
*  Does the SCA need an official Code of Conduct
*  Should the SCA do criminal checks/does a person's criminal past outside
   the SCA matter

The Grand Council is not involved in policy decisions or debate regarding
how the SCA is organized on the medieval and recreational level, except
where such organization impinges on the modern world.
