In the SCA, there are two distinct sides. One is reenactment and the other is the modern world responsibilities. Certain offices straddle this line such as the Seneschal’s office, Exchequer’s office, Chatelaine’s office and the Marshallate.
All offices have their own reporting schedule when they send in updates (quarterly, bi-annually or other as outlined for that office) on the health of the local group (Chapter) and the various activities of that office. The updates are sent to their immediate supervisor – be that at the “Baronial” level (governs a group of local chapters), Regional (geographical area) or Kingdom (larger geographical area equivalent to a District).
