Committee Survey

On behalf of the SCA Board of Directors, the Peerage Committee would like
to solicit the opinions of all members of the Society in the following
survey to gauge post-implementation views within the Society of the
addition of the Order of Defense, as well as to understand the appetite for
a future martial peerage or peerages for activities such as archery, thrown
weapons, equestrian, and siege engines.

The last survey of this type, the SCA Census, was conducted over 10 years
ago.  Much has changed within the Society in the years since that survey,
and the Board cannot assume the data from the Census still reflects the
opinions of members, particularly following the implementation of the Order
of Defense.

The purpose of this survey is to understand if and how opinions have
changed since the Order of Defense was introduced as a Peerage order, as
well as to understand the lessons learned during that implementation.  The
Board also recognizes that there has been much discussion by the membership
since the implementation of the Order of Defense regarding extending
recognition to other activities currently not covered by a martial
skill-based peerage, including (but not limited to) archery, thrown
weapons, equestrian activities, and siege engines.  This survey is a
prelude to any future discussion by the Board regarding additional peerage

By completing this survey, you will help the Board to collect fresh data
regarding attitudes towards existing and potential Peerage orders, and to
progress the discussion of these topics.  Thank you for your assistance in
this matter. Deadline for completion of this survey is *January 28th,
2019. *The Survey is now live at :

If you wish to re-take the survey to change your responses should your
opinions change you may retake the survey but be aware that taking the
survey again will negate your previous survey in its entirety. Please fill
the survey out again fully.
