What is a Chatelaine?

The office of Chatelaine is primarily the office designated to coordinate the education and orientation of new members. There are three distinct areas that generally fall to the Chatelaine (according to SCA.org): Recruiting new members (usually through “demos”), talking to newcomers (educating in SCA customs) and lending clothing (“garb”). Besides providing introductory information for new members, the Hospitaller is faced with the challenge of gently continuing the education of the established members regarding the “care and feeding” of newcomers.
