      Potential New Peerage Exploratory Committee

      Based on input from the Census results, as well as an examination of the breadth and depth of participation across the Known World and the unique subculture, ethos, and goals it has developed within the Society, the Board of Directors intends to explore the possibility of creating a new peerage to recognize as peers those participants who meet the general requirements for a patent of arms and who demonstrate prowess in Rapier / Cut and Thrust Combat. As this would potentially be the first additional peerage for the SCA in many decades, input and feedback from the Known World throughout the exploratory process is essential.

      The SCA?s Board of Directors is seeking individuals interested in participating in an Exploratory Committee focused on developing a set of options for potential implementation of a new peerage for Rapier Combat and/or Cut and Thrust Combat. This committee would be responsible for developing sets of recommendations for heraldry, regalia, corpora changes and identifying and addressing associated issues around creating and implementing such a peerage, and would consist of representatives of the following categories:
      ? One recognized Rapier Fencer or Rapier Fencing Official
      ? One recognized C&T Fencer or C&T Fencing Official
      ? One Fencing Laurel (recognized for Fence)
      ? One Fencing Pelican (recognized for Fence)
      ? One Fencing Knight/Master at Arms
      ? Two Heralds
      ? One Non-Fencing Pelican
      ? One Non-Fencing Laurel
      ? One Non-Fencing Knight/Master at Arms
      ? One Lady of the Rose
      ? One expert in Corpora (e.g., Seneschal)
      ? One SCA Archivist or Historian

      Please submit Letters of Intent by July 1st, 2012 and identify to which of the above categories you are specifically applying. Those individuals who have expressed interest already via the Comments email address or the Directors email address will be considered.
      Hard copies of resumes (both professional and SCA related, including offices held and honors) must be sent to the attention of The Board of Directors, SCA, Inc., P.O. Box 360789, Milpitas, CA 95036-0789. Electronic courtesy copies should also be sent to [mailto:peerageexploratorycommittee@...] peerageexploratorycommittee@... and resumes@....

      The exploration into a new stand-alone Peerage for Rapier / Cut and Thrust is driven not only by what the Board of Directors perceives to be a very high level of support across the organization, but also because it expresses a defined and specific culture that is unique and separate from chivalric armoured combat, other martial arts, and the unique and separate cultures of the Arts and Sciences and Service communities.

      The results of this Exploratory Committee, along with comments from the populace about those results, will then be reviewed by a much larger and more representative Review Committee. The Review Committee will be established later by the Board of Directors and will be comprised of representatives selected by the relevant groups and organizations within and across the Society (e.g., the Kingdoms, Peerages, Heralds, Seneschals, Grand Council, Rapier Fencing Community, and C&T Fencing Community) as a final input into the process. The Board will be working with those organizations to request their nominees following the formation of the Exploratory Committee. The Board welcomes all commentary throughout this exploratory process from the populace at large. Please send commentary to [mailto:Comments@...] Comments@... and include Potential New Peerage in the subject line.
