New business:
May crown 2020: Moses lake site might work, left message with the fairground guy to check date avilliabity.  Area is king’s land, no checking with local barony. Have people for MIC, still need someone for gate. Expenses should be similar as last time, might need to re-arrange the layout.
Because this is a kingdom event, does gate have to be approved by kingdom exchequer? Yes.
Will this put too much stress on our summer activities? Pushing back to later in the summer?

Exchequer

Review of the new policies and Traditions

Changed little details to bring into alignment with kingdom law, larger details for modern conventions.
Needs added info in the glossery. (warranted?) must be defined.
Should feedback proceed before the next draft? Finding info for anything requiring for signifagent discussion, will be posted in full version if no major changes in content required.
Needed to discuss: Polling selection process. Previously candidates were nominated by others. Might’ve cut down on possible options. Belief is that volunteers would be best. If we move to a volunteers, please tell your choice that they should put their names in.
5.3.6 references a section that does not exist.
6.1: does it refer only to greater officers? Edit made to 6- to note that required officers need to be warranted. Further discussion on updating the terminology around the difference between greater and lesser offices. Contingency officers should be identified and trained.
Updating terminology in 6.3 to “nominated” officer.
