Unto the Regional Heralds and local group heralds and pursuivants, as well as the general populace of the East, does Malcolm Bowman, Brigantia Principal Herald, send greetings.
It has come to my attention that the East Kingdom College of Heralds reporting cycle makes no sense. I am altering this in Brigantia Policy, but I wanted to bring it to everyone’s attention.
First, as Brigantia, I need to file reports to the Laurel Sovereign of Arms Quarterly: 3/1, 6/1, 9/1, 12/1.
A part of my report is getting reports from my regionals, who in turn get their reports from local group heralds. In order to untangle this matter, the new reporting schedule will look like this:
Local group heralds/pursuivants: Reports will be due 11/1, 2/1, 5/1, and 8/1 (get this out before Pennsic, please.)
Regional Heralds: Reports will be due 11/15, 2/15, 5/15 and 8/15.
Yes, I recognize that this will be impossible to make happen for this current quarter. As such, this will go into effect as of 9/1/19, which means the next report from local group heralds will be due 11/1, and reports from the regional heralds will be due 11/15.
It is my hope that this will make the reporting process easier and more logical. Further, don’t forget that reports should be filled out online here: https://herald.eastkingdom.org/administrivia/quarterly-reporting-form/
If you have not done so already, please fill out your information on the roster. https://herald.eastkingdom.org/getting-involved/herald-roster/
Signing onto the roster is for ALL heralds, whether a local group officer or at-large herald, submission, court, field, or otherwise.
Last, but not least, my second term as Brigantia Principal Herald expires at the end of the year.
Current officers must notify The Royalty and Heirs, Kingdom Seneschal and Kingdom Chronicler ninety (90) days in advance of a change or renewal of office. Notification must also be given to the Kingdom Webminister to be published on the East Kingdom website including a call for letters of application.
It is my intent to continue for one more term. I have already asked Their Highnesses to grant me a 4th and final year in this office. However, as per Kingdom Law, if any wish to apply for this office, please send your letter in to Their Highnesses via e mail.
If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact me – brigantia at eastkingdom dot org.
