[SCA-AE] Change in Corpora Proposed

Currently, you *have* to be a member as of the day of Crown to enter
The change is *requiring* that before you can fight in crown, you must
have a valid, paid membership that extends for your entire reign. In
the case of AEthelmearc, this means your membership must be September to
September or May to May. This is one more month than a 1 year
membership will cover, thus requiring all entrants in Crown to
effectively obtain a 2 year membership.
What the change is addressing is that some folks memberships expire
while they are reigning as King and Queen, and in a few cases the
individuals forgot to renew while they were on the throne, thus causing
their membership to lapse while reigning.
It is not changing the fact that you still need to be a card-carrying
member before you can enter Crown. That requirement has been there for
years and is still in effect.

Having held a Kingdom office twice, once in the east (3 yrs),
and once in AEthelmearc (4 years), and been a Society Officer (6 yrs).
I don't see a problem with requiring paid membership in order to hold
most visible office there is. As K or Q of any given kingdom.
Or am I missing something here?
Not only did I have the 'required' membership to hold my offices, but
also paid for additional kingdom newsletters as well.
If your serious about wanting to be king, then a paid membership
as part of the requirement of entering the list field during crown
should not be difficult.
If you wait till the last moment to pay up, then what kind of K or Q
you be? One who waits till the last minute to do the duties required?
Been there, saw that and its not a pretty sight. All kingdoms deserve
And its not that big of a burden. Most entrants in to Crown 'are' card
carring members as it is.
