Sanction Guide – Corpora Changes – Request for Comments

As Corpora is the primary guide to all SCA rules and procedures and the sanction guide is subordinate to the Seneschals Handbook in terms of precedence, a change to Corpora is being considered by the Board of Directors, i.e.  deleting references to the Sanction Guide in Corpora.  This change clearly reasserts that Corpora is the primary guide to SCA rules and procedures, reduces confusion and eliminates any appearance that Corpora is subordinate to the Sanction guide.
In order to facilitate this change, the Board is presenting a proposal to the membership for commentary for removal of the following portions of Corpora dealing with references to the Sanction Guide:
Chapter I, Section F, subsection 4
Chapter X, Section C, subsections 1(b), 2(b) and 3(b).
For ease of reference a copy of the Governing Documents (Corpora) can be found here:
Commentary can be sent to comments@sca.org .  Please place the term Sanction Guide – Corpora Changes in the subject line.  The deadline for commentary is October 1, 2016.
Comments are strongly encouraged and can be sent to:
SCA Inc.
Box 360789
Milpitas,  CA 95036
You may also email comments@lists.sca.org.
This announcement is an official informational release by the Society for Creative Anachronism , Inc.  Permission is granted to reproduce this announcement in its entirety in newsletters, websites and electronic mailing lists.
