The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Mark Faulcon (Duke Martin Lochner) as Director-Elect to Seat G. He will assume this position from Natalie Degerstrom (the Honorable Lady Saruca bint Lazari) at the close of the October 2022 quarterly meeting.
Mark Faulcon is an enterprise architect for a large health insurance services organization. For the past 20 years, Mark has worked in the IT field as an executive IT consultant and architect, advising clients of all sizes on cloud adoption and other emerging technologies. Mark makes his home in Orlando, Florida with his wife and family. Grudgingly, he will admit that there are two cats in the house, too. Mark has been in the SCA since birth; his earliest memory in the Society is sitting in the lap of Gyrth Oldcastle when he was King of the East, in 1978.
Duke Martin Lochner, KSCA, OP is a 14th-century Burgundian nobleman serving in the armies of Bertrand du Guesclin in the Hundred Years’ War. When not on campaign, he is to be found riding his favorite horse Jet about his family’s estates in Franche-Comté, or competing in the lists at tournament, although he longs to return to the wonders of the world he saw in his younger campaigning days. He believes himself something of a woodworker and gourmand; his wife would generally agree, although perhaps not to the same degree.
The SCA’s Board of Directors sets policy and maintains the unified rules that provide the framework for all of the SCA’s activities, both modern and game-side, and acts as the final arbiter when rule interpretation is required. Members of the Board make a three-and-a-half (3 1/2) years commitment when agreeing to serve.
As new Directors are seated each April and October, candidates for the Board are continually being solicited. Individuals may be nominated by SCA members and participants or can be self-nominated. No special experience is required, and candidates do not need to have specialized modern degrees. They also need not be peers – people from all walks of life are desired. To make a nomination, (or to nominate yourself), please forward a Modern Name, SCA Name, and email address to [email protected]
