From the Kingdom Seneschal’s office:
The First Curia of Titus and Anna Leigh – Agenda
There will be a short Curia at Twelfth Night January 10, 2015 at 9:00am in ACG. Curia is opened by the King’s Herald opening Court. This allows us to make any required declarations immediately instead of repeating them later in another Court.
A. WRITTEN Officer Reports ONLY – Please have them to Their Majesties, Their Highnesses, and me by the event. They will be published on the web site and other electronic venues.
B. Kingdom Budget for 2015
C. Changes to Kingdom Financial Policy – second presentation. The initial presentation of the changes to the Financial Policy was at the Curia of Tindal and Etain this past summer. We then had several months for public comment. After this second presentation at Curia, the updated Financial Policy will be signed off by the Financial Committee and sent to the Board of Directors for ratification. This extended ratification process is in place because Kingdom Financial Policy is Society Policy and is higher in precedent than Kingdom Law.
D. Announcement of changes to Seneschal Policy:
The lead time for soliciting resumes will be moved from 6 months to 15 months before the current Seneschal steps down. The choice will be made by the Royalty seated one year prior to the change, so as to allow for an extended training time for the new Seneschal. This brings practice into line with the Exchequer’s Office.
Seneschal Policy, as all Officer Policy, is not required to go before Curia. As this is a major change to the way we currently do things, we are announcing it now and again at Curia in order to get feedback OUTSIDE Curia both in person, and via email and other communication venues before a final decision is made.
E. Change to Kingdom Law :
Their Majesties wish to change the deadline for Crown Letters of Intent from 1 month postmarked or hand delivered to Coronation postmarked or hand delivered. It cuts off a week lead time. We are putting this out ahead of time to try to get some of the discussion done before Twelfth Night as our time for Curia is very limited.
