BoD Roundtable: Set up for this will be immediately after the end of the tournaments.

(What is a BoD Roundtable?)

Have you ever wondered what the SCA Board of Directors (BoD) is, what they do, or why anyone in their right mind would want to sit on the BoD?

Members of the SCA BoD and the Society Seneschal will be having an open panel-style discussion following the conclusion of the tourneys.

They want to hear from you!  Bring your questions!
