A few day-before requests and reminders to make Curia more accessible and more efficient:
- Please join the Zoom meeting via your EK email if you have an account – this makes it easier for the Speaking List mods, the Captioning team, the Crown, and the Seneschal to identify you correctly.
- Once you're in the Zoom meeting, please rename your Zoom name to your SCA Name:
Everyone will start in the Pre-Meeting space, where you have time to set up your name and say good morning. The host(s) will move participants from there into the Curia breakout Zoom space.
In the Curia breakout space:
- please keep your mic muted whenever you're not the recognized speaker.
- please use the chat only for requests to be in the speaking queue.
How to View Closed Captioning:
If you're using closed captioning, we recommend that you set your view to Active Speaker mode:
Curia is not recorded.
Populace speaking times for each item will follow the seated speakers.
An agenda and details of the proposed changes are available on the Seneschal's web site at https://seneschal.eastkingdom.org/curia.php
This Curia is happening earlier in the reign than usual especially to allow the East to address an upcoming deadline in EK Law. There may be another Curia later in the reign, if Their Majesties determine that it’s needed.
Curia will not be recorded, just as live Curiae aren't.
The EK Webministry has graciously offered to serve as Mute-Monitors, to help keep the background noise at a minimal level by helping everyone in the meeting stay muted when they're not the recognized speaker. Please remember to keep yourself muted!
There will be designated Speaking List moderators. Gentles who wish to speak in Curia will note that in the chat. The moderators will keep the list and keep order among the speakers. Because the chat is essential for tracking speaking requests, the Consules request that it not be used for commentary or side conversations.
EK Law grants certain offices and persons the right to speak and be heard by the Crown in Curia:
- The Heirs of the East Kingdom
- The Coronet and Heirs of Principalities of the East Kingdom
- Greater Kingdom Officers
- Lesser Kingdom Officers
- Local Branch Seneschals
- East Kingdom Royal Peers
- East Kingdom Territorial Barons and Baronesses
These gentles are most earnestly requested to participate in the Curia meeting *via their official eastkingdom.org email account* to make it easier for the Speaking List moderators to identify them and ensure that their words reach the Crown. (If you won't be able to do that for this Curia, please send word to the Clerk of Laws soonest, so the Seneschal and the Speaking List moderators will be able to identify you in the meeting. firstname.lastname@example.org)
There will be designated blocks of time for members of the populace to speak, so that their words also reach the Crown. Everyone who has an eastkingdom.org email account is encouraged to join the Curia meeting using that account so the Consules, Seneschal, and Speaking List moderators may address you properly. (If technology access makes calling in by phone your best option, please contact the Clerk of Laws before Curia with the number you will be dialing in from so that you can be properly identified. email@example.com)
Officers and gentles who hold seats in Curia by EK Law (the list above) are requested to join the Curia meeting as close to 9:30am as possible. The meeting hosts will be watching for your official eastkingdom.org addresses so we can cross-check our lists. Members of the populace will be asked to hold in Zoom’s waiting room until approximately 9:55am, so we can make sure that those who must be at Curia have arrived. We appreciate everyone's understanding of the constraints.
The Consules and the Seneschal appreciate everyone's efforts to support this new Curia format. We're all especially appreciative of the efforts and support of the EK Webministry, for making this possible and even making it look easy.
