Officer Openings – Ministers of A&S and Youth

The Barony of the Cleftlands is accepting applications for the Minister of Arts & Sciences and the Minister of Youth. Each position requires current SCA membership, and the Minister of Youth position will require a background check*.

If you would like to be considered for either of these positions, please fill out the application online. The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2015. Questions or comments may be directed to my inbox (, please.)

Regarding the Minister of Arts & Sciences:

The Minister of Arts & Sciences is considered a Great Officer required for running the Barony. (Society Seneschals Handbook, Section 287.) In addition, did you know that if a local group does not have an A&S Minister, the group cannot have any official SCA sanctioned A&S activities and educational classes? (Midrealm, MOAS Handbook, Section: MOAS Requirements, p. 4)


* Regarding the Minster of Youth:

All warranted Youth Officers (deputies who ultimately report up to the Kingdom Seneschal) must have a current SCA membership and an approved, current, and valid background check. Warranted means you are an official deputy to the Kingdom Youth Coordinator or to the Kingdom Seneschal or one of their deputies. (Society Seneschals Handbook, Section 154.)
