Kingdom Minister of Arts & Sciences, Trimaris
A Pre-emptive Thank You
Should you volunteer, the KMOAS’ job is to prepare you for the next step. You will not be asked more than you can do and will not be burdened beyond your capabilities. If you are interested in testing the waters and seeing if being the future KMOAS is for you, contact ArtSci@Trimaris.org today. The KMOAS is eager to speak with you and even if it isn’t this go ’round – maybe it will be the next. Armed with Knowledge, we can accomplish more, better. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the SCA. Just for reading this, you are appreciated!
Note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A LAUREL
The BEST candidate will be selected from those who apply and ideally meet the following:
– Have entered a Kingdom and/OR Regional Art Sci Competition (ANY level / ANY score)
– Have judged a Kingdom and/OR Regional Art Sci Entry
– Have attended a Kingdom Art Sci Competition event (because you can enter and not attend)
– Have attended an Art Sci Expo
– Have witnessed a Laureate Competition
– Have attended one or more Trimaris Royal Universities
– Are comfortable communicating digitally: Zoom, FB, Gmail, and/or Discord
Note: If all of the above does not apply, THAT IS OK! But the above list is ideal for this KMOAS to feel comfortable recommending you to the Crown and Society as Successor, given our digital age and the practical job perspective helpful in doing right by our ever growing Art Sci community. Any of the above can be accomplished in your training tenure. Exceptions as applicable, per outcome of position consultation with KMOAS. When in doubt – apply. Let’s chat!

The Successor KMOAS will partner with the KMOAS in training and Kingdom Arts and Sciences Initiatives in coordination and under the directive of the KMOAS for the purposes of hands-on training and Art Sci Community engagement.
