SCA National Chapters


 

What is a National Chapter?

A National Chapter is an entity that represents the SCA activities in a specific country or regional territory, represented by a group of elected enthusiasts from the SCA community.  Volunteer-led in deliveringeducation, events, and research with the responsibility to make engagement opportunities available to the regional community. The Chapter embodies the vision and mission of the SCA in all activities. The Chapter entity can be one of the following 3 types:

Volunteer-Led Group – A group (elected membership) allowed the use of the SCA Chapter name according to guidelines during a temporary period of community establishment.

 

Affiliate Office – A registered company or association that is not a subsidiary and that has an agreement with SCA to act as representation to support the national chapter activities. 

 

Branch Office – A SCA registered company or association (such as a subsidiary) that represents the national chapter activities.  Branch offices would have SCA staff for some administrative functions and support to the elected chapter leadership.

What is the purpose of a SCA Chapter?

SCA National Chapters are a reflection of the SCA vision, mission and purpose with the ability to convene local community.  Chapters can more efficiently develop and serve their communities with respect to culture and language to provide access, influence, and sense of belonging to a network locally; as well as being a part of a greater global network.

How to form a Chapter?

SCA are currently in the process of assessing our strategy for National Chapter development globally and welcome dialogue on how we can build a model that best serves our communities.  The current threshold of membership and representation community in a country is a minimum of 25 SCA members, 3 of which need to be business/corporate. If that minimum is met, we jointly review the circumstances of legal entities and formations that preserve a neutral network that the local community can support.  We currently recognize only one group as the SCA Chapter in countries where Chapters exist.
