Welcome to the world of Lochac Arts & Sciences.  You have chosen an exciting and rewarding Officer, as Arts & Sciences Officer.  You can learn, teach and watch people grown in their chosen field of arts Sciences.  Our job, as Arts & Sciences Officers, is to help guide and enthuse people about Arts & Sciences, in the Society for Creative Anachronism.  The Arts & Sciences Officer probably has less paperwork than any other office and, I think, is much more fun!
This handbook is designed to help not only the Kingdom Minister of arts & Sciences (KMoAS), but also the Local Arts & Sciences Officers of Lochac in their duties, to provide information, consistency, help and hopefully to inspire others.  For those who are interested in a specific area of Arts & Sciences, please visit the Kingdom of Lochac Arts & Sciences page http://lochac.sca.org/lochac/guilds/index.html or talk to the Guilds themselves.  Current contact for Lochac’s Guilds are in the Kingdom Newsletter, Pegasus.

If you are interested in becoming a KMoAS, or Kingdom ‘Drop Dead’ Deputy, then please contact the current Kingdom arts & Sciences Minister.  I am sure they would love to hear from you!
