Volunteers help run the Barony
The Barony is run by volunteers who serve for a period of time, usually two years, and then hand off to a successor. Serving the Barony is a wonderful opportunity to meet people and enhance your skills (and you can reference skills on a resume that you develop doing volunteer work….yes.)
Activities in person have been suspended during the pandemic. Some of these activities are taking place in the virtual world. For information on virtual activities, contact the Seneschal or check the announcements on the Barony’s Facebook page.
Baronial Curia (planning/business meeting) and a number of other activities are taking place via web videoconferencing until further notice. Information on many scheduled virtual events and how to connect may be found on the An Tir Kingdom Virtual Meeting Calendar.
The notes of the meeting are available for public viewing.
