ABOUT MEMBERSHIP IN THE SCA
There are several levels of membership in the Society: a Sustaining membership ($35) includes a year’s subscription to your kingdom’s newsletter, which contains kingdom news, announcements for events taking place in your area, and local group contacts. Lower-priced Associate and Family memberships are also available.
You are not required to purchase an SCA membership before attending SCA meetings and events. Membership is a requirement for holding office in SCA groups, for participation in combat and combat-related activities in some kingdoms, and for eligibility to receive awards in some kingdoms.To learn more about membership, click here: SCA Membership

Information about members, including their Personae Name and Device is maintained by the College of Heralds.
Kingdom of Caid’s Order of Precedence lists all of the people within the kingdom who have received individual awards. It is maintained by the Caid College of Heralds. Feel free to browse over the list of people from the Barony of Western Seas who are included there.
It is recommended that members of the Barony check over the Order of Precedence from time to time to ensure their records are up to date. If they are not, contact the Baronial Herald for assistance.
The order of precedence is a useful tool to arrange people in an objective manner, paying respect to their rank and relative position in the kingdom. It helps dictate protocol and ceremony when needed, and prevents confusion and upset among the landed nobility.
The Order of Precedence lists an individual’s “top” award, ordering recognition by rank, date, and name (two people with the same rank on the same date will be ordered by name). This also is limited to the awards that carry “precedence” (Awards of Arms and higher). There are links for each individual that can be used to see more details about them, and list all of their recognition. Please note this is here mostly as a curiosity, as the primary purpose of an Order of Precedence is to help set people up for a Grand March, something seldom done anymore.
