while avoiding the mess of using multiple groups' bank accounts. I remember
a long while back (in your tenure as Exchequer?) that there were problems
accounting for a joint TGS/Gargoyles event. This has since been fixed.
Current procedure: One group is responsible for the finances of an
event. Whichever group is chosen is arbitrary. The responsible group may,
or may not, get upfront money from the participating groups, which is
considered a transfer within Kingdom. That one group takes in
all revenue for the event, pays all expenses, and is the only group
to submit an event report and recognize the income and expenses on their
quarterly and Domesday reports. After everything is settled, the
sponsoring group then pays out the shares of net profit to the various
groups, and it is similarly considered a transfer within Kingdom.
We have proven at least twice that we can have Ayreton-level joint
events and account for them. With a Barony, it would work the same
way, just that the sponsoring group would be the Barony itself.
(Assuming, of course, that it was decided to share event proceeds
among the cantons, and not hold them for the barony.)
I don't see how having a barony would simplify accounting over what
is in place now. This isn't to say we shouldn't; I just want to make
sure we're basing the proposal on real merits.

Note! The following is MY OPINION ONLY, and is, in fact, only a suggestion.
I respectfully request that persons who hold a title (like, say, "Regional Seneschal"...I'll use that example because I hold that office) refrain from using it for purposes of this discussion.
That is to say, I might post that The Regional Seneschal says...this or that...or The Regional Seneschal thinks...this or that. In my experience, such comments might lead folks to believe that an Official Declaration or Official Comment was being made.
You will note that unless I am speaking as the Regional Seneschal, I speak as Alexander, some guy from Ravenslake. In that way, Alexander can make his opinions known, and the Regional Seneschal's opinion on the matter (whatever it may be) is not mixed in. Sometimes I speak as the Regional Seneschal, and have been invited to some group meetings in that role. Normally, I kick in my two cents with everyone else.
I hope that others who hold offices, unless they are specifically speaking as the officeholder, will make any advice, comments, suggestions, etc. as themselves, not from their office.
Once again, this is Just My Opinion and suggestion.
Is mise le meas,
Alexander de Seton,
some guy from Ravenslake
