A message from the Minister of Waivers:

Greetings unto the good people of Northshield.

With in-person events happening more regularly, I want to remind people that waivers from events must be submitted to the Minister of Waivers within 30 days of the event. Waivers from practices need to be submitted at least quarterly, if not more often. To optimize their usefulness, COVID contact tracing forms should be submitted within a week. Please send all these forms to waivers@northshield.org. Either scanned documents or photographs of the documents are acceptable.

Are you interested in serving the kingdom? Are you interested in an office that does not require travel or much time and is super easy? Then look no further. I have served as Minister of Waivers for the past 18 months. I would like to step down from office, effective May 1, 2022.With the Kingdom Seneschal's permission, I am opening the office, with letters of intent due to the Kingdom Seneschal by February 1, 2022. The office is very easy. Primarily, the minister downloads copies of documents received via email and uploads them into a database. Occasionally, paper copies are mailed to the minister. These can be either scanned and uploaded, or digital photographs can be used. I am very glad to answer any questions.

The workload will vary but expect to put in an average of 1 hour per week with occasional commitments of 2 hours per week from April to September, when there are more events and practices. This position does not require travel.
