HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER

To be listed on the College roster as a member, contact the Chatelaine with your name and home group. Please feel free to include your interests and experience level if you’d like.

To become a voting member (which grants the right to vote in future elections for faculty and officer positions), we encourage you to offer a single performance, piece, or submission of your choice in the presence of three current voting members. This may be of absolutely any level of proficiency, does not require documentation, and can be conducted in private as desired. If this poses a hardship due to location or logistical difficulties, please contact the Provost to discuss alternatives.

Anyone who falls into the following categories will have full voting membership automatically granted upon request:

  • Former members of the guild known as the Royal College of Bards;
  • Companions of the Order of the Troubadour, the Order of Terpsichore, and the Order of the Maunche or the Laurel (the last two if given for excellence in a Performing Art of the College);
  • Past or present Kingdom or Baronial Bardic Champions, or other Champions of a Performing Art of the College.

There are also opportunities for non-performing Patrons of the College; contact the Chatelaine for ideas and suggestions.

For membership performance opportunities, check the Facebook Group or email the Chatelaine, Lord Drustan of Oldstonebridges.
