Keeping any organization together is a lot of work. Each group within the SCA must be able to maintain proper functioning of the group. To this end each group designates officers to take charge of specific areas of responsibility. These officers serve at an administrative level. Within the Barony of the South Downs (and the Society for Creative Anachronism as a whole), individual members volunteer their time and talents as officers to help make things happen for everyone.
