Salaberge le Granson

  • Enquiry regarding Closed Officers Meetings. Concern indicated that this was not open to the public scrutiny.
  • Seneschal explained that this was started by William Addemere and has been working well. System is not broken so he doesn't intend to fix it. Intent of meeting was to support and foster officers to work together. It is appropriate to have these closed because it deals with operational issues. Opening this to the Barony will not benefit the Officers and will detract from meeting's objective. Minutes are published. Any decisions regarding the spending of money go through regular monthly business meeting.

(Note: Baroness doesn't want these happening on a school night, she gets too cranky!)

  • Baron will be running six monthly cheese and wine meetings for group to have opportunity to discuss strategic issues with Barony.
  • Closed Officer Support Meetings (Officer's Anonymous?) to continue
