      Open volunteer positions-
      SCA Census 2010 Committee Members and Committee Chair

      As there have been various pressing issues before the board and membership in the past several months, and as the Directors and Corporate staff are committed to obtaining as much information as to the attitudes of the membership toward these issues, we are considering creating a "Census 2010" project for the SCA.

      The Board is seeking a team of enthusiastic individuals to help the SCA to create and implement a one year plan to get a census-level survey in the field that would cover the major topics that confront us, including "pay for" issues, award structure as well as quantitative, qualitative, motivational, and behavioural demographics such as age, gender, activities & interest areas, and reasons for joining & remaining in the SCA.

      "Census-level" means we are attempting to reach each and every participant of the SCA be they member or non-member. A census-level survey will enable us to understand our participants for purposes of marketing, recruitment, grant writing, and planning. It will give us a good, non-anecdotal idea of whom and what we currently are and are becoming. It will enable us to plan for the short term and the long term. Most importantly, it will provide information which will lead to better solutions to the problems the SCA and its Board are facing. Keep in mind that all the individual responses collected will be kept confidential and not sold or shared. All data to be collected or published will remain completely anonymous.

      The ideal team member will have:

      A solid background in research

      Skills in survey development, statistical data analysis, data mining

      Experience with different online survey systems and/or analytical software such as SPSS

      Strong analytical skills

      The ability to work as a team and meet deadlines

      Responsibilities will include:

      Development of objectives, concepts, and other broad aspects Selection of survey and analytical systems Development, design, programming, testing and fielding of questionnaires Analysis of results, and creation of presentations, including graphs, findings, and actionable recommendations Posting of all findings and raw data online

      The Census SCA 2010 Committee will report directly to the Board (via

      Ombudsman) as well as interfacing with other members of the Corporate Officer Staff (President, Society Seneschal, Treasurer, etc). One committee member will be selected by the Board of Directors to act as the Census Committee Chair and Project Manager.

      Please email your SCA and Modern Resumes to directors@....

      Grant Writing Committee Member and Committee Chair

      The Board is seeking a handful of motivated individuals to help the SCA seek alternative funding possibilities through grants.

      Responsibilities include:

      Create, design, and implement a grant writing proposal process for the SCA.

      Identify and target grant programs for which the SCA could qualify including researching where to find appropriate funding. Other tasks could include creating a common grant application format as well as exploring the possibility of outsourcing to a professional grant writing consultancy.

      The Grant Committee will report directly to the Board (via Ombudsman) as well as interfacing with other members of the Corporate Officer Staff (President, Society Seneschal, Treasurer, etc). One committee member will be selected by the Board of Directors to act as the Census Committee Chair and Project Manager.

      The Board is seeking individuals with grant writing experience and who understand the grant application process. Individuals should have superior writing and grammar skills, as well as the ability to work independently and meet deadlines. Also important are an attention to detail and the ability to understand financial and budgetary matters.

      Please email your SCA and Modern Resumes to directors@....

      Thank you for your continued commitment and participation.

      Board of Directors, SCA INC.
