​The office of the Seneschal is a facilitator of policy and procedure from the local to corporate level. Successful Seneschals avail themselves of good interpersonal skills and diplomatic skills, attention to detail, and objective issue management. Seneschals must work with and through people, and their success is completely dependent on the goodwill and relationships they can manage and foster. They are ultimately the one responsible for real world legal, financial, and operational matters: sites, contracts, waiver policy, and making sure the SCA governing documents are followed.
