Survey results will be shared with the East Kingdom after the survey closes.

However, please note that participation in the survey and the experiment request are separate activities and can proceed in parallel.


Next Steps

Survey results will be considered at the upcoming meeting of the Board of Directors on Sunday, July 21, 2024.


This survey is part of the evidence base being considered by the Board.


To make an informed decision regarding this experiment, the Board is considering the following evidence:

1. Support and Opposition Statements, including a clear, written record indicating who supports or opposes the request among the Sovereign, Consort, and Kingdom Seneschal.

2. Documentation from any meetings held on the topic, including dates, audiences, and summaries.

3. Data from this survey, including both raw data and any analysis performed.

4. The legitimacy timeframe for the one-time experiment, ensuring it is valid for up to 2 years from the Board's approval in case the current Crown does not enact it.

5. Prior commentary sent through the SCA-Comments email. 

This evidence will ensure a comprehensive and transparent review process for the experiment decision.
