Currently open for commentary is a proposal to expand the Society’s Mission
Statement.

The Mission Statement currently reads as follows:

The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (SCA) is an international
organization devoted to the research and re-creation of pre-seventeenth
century life, employing knowledge of history to enrich participants’ lives
and the lives of others through events, demonstrations, and other
educational venues.

The proposed revision reads as follows:

The Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc. (the “Society”) is a 501(c)3
Educational Not-for-Profit organization devoted to the study of the Middle
Ages and Renaissance.  As a living history group, the Society provides an
environment in which members can recreate various aspects of the culture
and technology of the period, as well as doing more traditional historical
research.

The Society’s mission is to promote the research and re-creation of
pre-seventeenth century life, employing knowledge of history to enrich the
lives of participants and others through live events and other educational
venues.

In pursuing this mission, the Society is committed to excellence in its
programs and activities and to

∙ act in accordance with the chivalric virtues of honor and service;
∙ value and respect the worth and dignity of all individuals;
∙ practice inclusiveness and respect pluralism and diversity;
∙ promote a safe and respectful environment for all Society events;
∙ act with transparency, fairness, integrity and honesty;
∙ be a responsible steward of Society resources; and,
∙ be committed to maintaining the trust of its members and participants.

It is the expectation of the Society that its members and participants, in
all events and activities of the Society, will conduct themselves in
accordance with these tenets.
