To all those working on an Autocrat/Event Steward Handbook or checklist, please start it off by including this section of Corpora:
Page 13-14 from
THE CORPORA OF THE SOCIETY FOR CREATIVE ANACHRONISM, INC.
January 18, 2014 Revision
D. Individuals in Charge of Events
Each Society event must have one Society member appointed by the sponsoring branch in attendance and responsible for the general conduct of the event. Where an event involves only one type of Society activity, the responsible member is the appropriate branch officer, or someone designated by that officer (usually called an Autocrat or Event Steward). Where an event includes a variety of activities, the responsible member is the branch Seneschal or someone designated by the branch Seneschal (usually called an Autocrat or Event Steward). Events including Society combat or combat-related activities must have at least one warranted marshal, designated by the Marshal of the sponsoring branch, in attendance and responsible for those activities.
E. Duty to Enforce Requirements
1. The officer(s) of the sponsoring branch responsible for an event shall ensure that the event operates according to the rules set forth in this document. If transgressions occur which seriously compromise the integrity of the event or endanger the health and safety of the attendees, the responsible officers shall correct the problem immediately as follows:
2. Disruptive elements at an event may be removed from the event by the individual responsible for that event or other appropriate officer. Offenses against contemporary civil or criminal law should be dealt with through the appropriate legal system. This does not preclude the Society from taking other appropriate actions as described in Corpora X.
3. The responsible officer for the event may find it necessary to remove Society approval for the event, or call the appropriate civil authorities, such as police, fire, or medical personnel. If the responsible officer cannot or will not do so, the senior Seneschal present, or (in cases involving the Rules of the Lists) the senior Marshal present shall do whatever is necessary to end the transgressions, and notify the responsible officers and the owner of the site or the owner’s agent that the Society will no longer be responsible for the event. In such a case, all official actions properly performed prior to the point when sanction was removed will be considered valid. However, no action taken after that point, including transfers of office or bestowal of awards, will be considered valid. If an event is terminated in this manner, the person(s) doing so must notify the Society Seneschal, the appropriate kingdom officers, and any other appropriate Society officers as soon as possible. They must also file a complete written report of the circumstances with the Society Seneschal, the appropriate kingdom officers, and any other appropriate Society officers within 30 days.
4. It is not the responsibility of Crowns to deal with violations of modern law. When asked to resolve situations that fall under the jurisdiction of modern authorities, it is the Crown’s responsibility to cooperate in referring such violations to the modern authorities. Further, it is the responsibility of the officers, particularly the local or Kingdom Seneschal, to ensure that the modern authorities are promptly notified.
