For the information about future scheduling please review the status table located on the web at: http://www.sca.org/heraldry/status.html.
Not all letters of intent may be considered when they are originally scheduled on this cover letter. The date of mailing of the LoI, date of receipt of the Laurel packet, or other factors may delay consideration of certain letters of intent. Additionally, some letters of intent received may not have been scheduled because the administrative requirements (receipt of the forms packet, receipt of the necessary fees, et cetera) have not yet been met.
REMINDER: Until all administrative requirements are met, the letter may not be scheduled.
Thanks to the hard working folk of Gleann Abhann, this year's Known World Heraldic and Scribal Symposium is going to happen in New Orleans after all, on June 16-18, 2006. The hotel is repaired, a health certificate has been issued and we will see you there. To find more information visit the event web site via http://www.sca.org/heraldry/laurel/kwhs/ . I would remind the principal heralds that I strongly recommend you attend this year, if at all possible.
Rumors aside, as yet I have not received any bids for the 2007 Symposium. Remember that these are due by the end of May 2006, and plan accordingly.
If you are planning on having a Kingdom Heraldic Symposium this year, this is a reminder that you too can have Laurel, Wreath and/or Pelican attend your event. This can involve a road show with armory and names decisions being made, classes can be taught, we can hold question and answer sessions. All that we ask is that the hosting Kingdom split the travel costs with the Laurel Office, and plan well in advance to facilitate scheduling. So think it over, consider in what areas you think your Kingdoms could use a heraldic boost, and let us know.
The College of Arms Roster is only as useful as the currency of its information. If you've changed your mailing address, e-mail, name, heraldic title or any other relevant data, notify me as soon as you can. An updated roster is sent every month to the principal heralds and submission heralds, but any member of the CoA can have a current copy of the roster at any time, on request to Laurel.
For all Letters of Intent, Comment, Response, Correction, et cetera, send one paper copy directly to each of the Sovereigns of Arms, Laurel, Pelican and Wreath at their mailing addresses as shown on the College of Arms Roster.
