Greetings Unto the Cooks' Guild from Lady Iulia Kaloethina Eirenikina,
I hope this letter finds you both in good spirits and health. I recently made several inquiries into what is/means to be a Guild Head. Upon much thought, discussion, and research I have decided to show my intent in possibly becoming the next Head of the Cook's Guild.
My qualifications are: I have a Leather Mallet in cooking, currently I stand as the Barony of Coeur d'Ennui A&S champion for cooking, and I currently hold the office of MoAS in the Barony of Coeur d'Ennui. I have not been a member of the Cook's Guild for very long, but I have learned a great deal in every kitchen I have cooked in as a member. I am currently a paid member of the SCA, and I will have my contact information at the end of this letter.
Things I would like see happen are getting our Charter and Bylaws on the website. I know this is a small thing. I simply feel it is important that all members and would be members have access to this information. I would also like to organize twice a year meetings as stated in our bylaws, for at this point I believe we are only having 1 meeting a year. I would also like to see the Cook's Guild website become the official means of communication and announcements.
Other ideas and fun things I would like to see happen are single table/single team ToC samplings at medium/large EVENTS, such as Kirs Kinder, 12th Night, Toys For Tots, etc. I would also like to see the Guild do more teaching outside of Cook's Symposium and Lilies. All of these ideas can/should/will be discussed and voted upon at the next official meeting.
Lady Iulia Kaloethina Eirenikina
